Methods to pay your tuitions fees at Tilburg University

There are several methods to pay your tuition or weighted fees at Tilburg University.

Digital authorization via Studielink


By confirming this digital authorization, you grant permission to Tilburg University to direct debit the tuition or weighted fees. Please follow the step-by-step instruction – Country of bank of payer within SEPA area – Digital authorization.

Please note: You can only pay tuition or weighted fees with digital authorization if you have a bank account in a country in the SEPA area. The SEPA countries are listed here. If someone else (e.g. your father/mother) pays, they must have a Dutch bank account AND have their own DigiD (a Digital Identity for Dutch citizens). If you do not meet the requirements, please check the online 'payment wizard' and follow the new outcome.

Payment in 6 steps

Step 1

  • Log in to your Studielink account and go to ‘My To Do List’.
  • Click ‘Enter your payment details’. This is only possible after you have submitted a(n re-)enrollment application at Tilburg University. Re-enrollment in Studielink is possible as of mid-June.

Step 2

  • Enter ‘Country of bank of payer’. Please note: this country can only be a SEPA country.

Step 3

  • Determine who pays the tuition fee
  • If you pay the tuition or weighted fees yourself, choose for payment method ‘Digital authorization’.
  • If someone else pays the tuition or weighted fees, please enter that ‘Someone else’ will pay the fees. This option is only available if the 'country of bank of payer' is 'THE NETHERLANDS'.

Step 4

  • Indicate whether or not you want to pay in installments.

One-off transfer

By choosing not to pay in installments, you authorize Tilburg University to direct debit the tuition or weighted fees in full in one single installment. Tilburg University does not charge any fees for the administrative expenses for a one-off transfer.


Payment in installments

If you start your program in September, you can pay the tuition or weighted fees in 8 installments. Tilburg University will charge a fee of € 24 for the administrative expenses for payment in installments. These administrative expenses will be added to the first installment.

Please note: if you start your program after September, your tuition or weighted fees for the academic year will be determined. If you choose to pay in installments, the amount of each installment will be calculated according to this rate. Tilburg University has standard payment dates from September until May. Payments will be withdrawn from your bank account by Tilburg University according to these standard payment dates. After your digital authorization has been received and processed, the total amount of your tuition or weighted fees will be divided over the remaining number of installments (dates).

When your digital authorization is received and processed before August 15, your tuition or weighted fee due will be divided over the eight installment dates shown below. If the authorization is not received and processed on time, there are 7 installment dates left, of which September 25, 2017, would be the first. Thus your tuition or weighted fee due will be divided over the seven installment dates, of which September, 25 will be the first installment.


Example:

  • If you start on September 1, the determined total amount of tuition due is €14,500. The amount of each installment will be €1,812, whilst the first installment amount will be €1,836 (including €24 administration costs).
  • If your digital authorization is not received and processed on time for the August installment, the next installment date is September 25. Since seven installments are left, €2.071,43 (=14,500/7) will be withdrawn on each of the seven remaining installment dates. On September 25, €2,095.43 (including €24 administration costs) will be withdrawn.
  • If you start on November 1, and your determined total amount of tuition due is €12,083.33 then the amount of each installment will be €2,013.89 (=11,666.67/6) (October, November, January, February, March and April, if your digital authorization is processed before the October installment). The October installment will be increased with the €24 administrative costs.

Depending on the date Tilburg University has received and processed your digital authorization, the direct debit will take place on the following dates.

For the academic year 2017-2018 (start September)

  • September 25, 2017
  • October 25, 2017

Arrears in tuition payment

If the university does not receive a payment in time or not the complete amount due, a reminder letter requesting payment of the outstanding tuition or weighted fees will be sent.

If the student fails to make full payment of the tuition or weighted fees due before the deadline of this reminder expires, the Head of Student Administration will terminate the student’s registration as of the second month following on the reminder. All tuition or weighted fees owed will remain due through the month you are deregistered.

Consequently, payment by direct debit will no longer be possible for you. This regulation is stated in Article 7.2 of the Registration and Tuition Fee Regulations.

How to pay the tuition fees / weighted fees in the future

You need to transfer the total tuition / weighted fees in full by personal remittance. Please use the financial details under “Personal Remittance” which you can find on this website. If you fall into arrears and fail to meet the payment deadline mentioned in the reminder, additional collection costs (incl. VAT) will be charged on top of the tuition or weighted fees owed. If you do not pay this total amount, all these additional costs will be added to your outstanding debt to Tilburg University and a debt collector will be engaged.
