Following various complaints by a cross-section of new and returning students of their inability to take advantage of the Instalment Option for the payment of their fees, kindly find below the procedure for payment in instalments:

  1. Generate payment advice from the student portal. Please note that the payment advice used for the first payment will also be used for subsequent payments.
