Tuition and Fees
As a non-profit organization, the American International School of Jeddah (AISJ) is funded predominantly by tuition and fees. General tuition and fees ensure the continued quality of the school's programs. All funds are used to operate the school, provide the best education and resources reasonably possible, and to prepare for the school’s future needs. Tuition amounts include textbooks, classroom assessments/reporting, and PSAT assessments.

Tuition is assessed on a full-year basis for students enrolling in the first semester. Tuition may be paid in two equal semester installments on the due dates listed below. Attendance of one week in a semester will make the student subject to pay a full semester tuition fee. For parents with 3 or more children attending AISJ, tuition payment can be made in four equal installments on the due dates listed below.
|grade level||tuition (SAR) full tuition due||tuition (SAR) 2-installment plan||Tuition (SAR) 4-Installment plan (parents of 3 or more children only)|
|Due 8/20/2019||due 8/20/19||due 1/20/20||due 8/20/19||due 10/20/19||due 1/20/20||due 3/20/20|
As part of AISJ enrollment criteria, the school may require certain students to receive special services as a condition of their enrollment. Depending on the severity of their needs, these services may include Learning Support (LS), English Language Learning (ELL), and Speech Language Pathology (SLP). AISJ will provide these services for an additional fee. AISJ accepts students with mild to moderate special needs. We are unable to accept and admit students with intensive or severe needs.
|LEVEL OF SUPPORT||FEES (SAR)|
|Extensive Needs Service Level I||10,500|
|Mild/Moderate Needs Service Level II||6,900|
*In special circumstances when students require a one-to-one assistant, parents will pay the additional wage cost of the personnel required.
*LS/ELL/SLP fees are payable in advance by semester but refundable for any non-used quarter. Participation during any part of a quarter constitutes payment due for the entire quarter.
Families with more than one child enrolled at AISJ will be eligible for the following discount on tuition. This discount does not apply to Special Service Fees, including English Language Learners, Learning Support, or AP Fees. The child in the highest grade level will be considered the first child.
|First Child||No Discount|
|Second Child||5% from own tuition|
|Third Child||10% from own tuition|
|Fourth Child and Above||15% from own tuition|
The following fees are assessed one time to all new students and are non-refundable. These one-time Enrollment Fees are not included in tuition. A new student is considered to be any child who is either new to AISJ, or is re-enrolling after not attending AISJ for a period of one year.
The Capital Fee is assessed regardless of the time a student has been away from AISJ and is used for capital purchases or building projects. If, however, the re-enrolling student paid the capital fee in the previous three years, they would pay the difference between the old fee and the new fee. After three years absent from the school, the re-enrolling student will pay the entire Capital Fee.
|FEE||DUE DATE||AMOUNT (SAR)|
|Application Fee||Application Submission Date||300|
|Assessment Fee||Prior to Assessment/Interview||800|
|Registration Fee||Enrollment/Re-Enrollment Date||14,500|
|Capital Fee||Enrollment/Re-Enrollment Date||0|
For each returning student, a SAR 4,000 seat deposit which will be applied towards the tuition will be due by February 13, 2020. Seat deposits are refundable at any time before May 31, 2020 by submitting withdrawal forms to the Admissions Office (School Registrar). Students who do not pay the seat deposit fee will not be guaranteed a seat for the following year and will have to reapply. Seats with a seat deposit paid but with unpaid tuition will be held until the 3rd day of the following school year. If arrival is planned after the due date of September 1, 2019, tuition payment should be paid no later than August 20, 2019 to avoid late fees or disenrollment. A planned absence form must be submitted to the appropriate division office in advance in order to avoid disenrollment.
