Partial waiving of application fee on Social Criteria
Self-funded students who might have important financial difficulties can request a partial waiving of application fees by filing a specific application record before September 30th of the current academic year.
Once the file is submitted and the supporting documents are reviewed by a social worker designated by HEAR, a selection commission chaired by the Board Director or its legal representative and the two Deputy Directors or their legal representative, the HEAR Administrator or its legal representative take a decision on the request.
The partial waiving of application fee will only take effect on tuition fee paid to HEAR (consequently excluding the Music students who already paid their application fee to the university, the social security, preventive health services and other additional contributions).
