The school is funded by Norwegian national appropriations and by student school fees. This covers all the costs of lectures. Tuition fees, enrollment money and deposits are paid to the school's account number 3000.32.02433. The total is portioned into 10 separate months, and the due date will be when the scholarship from Lånekassen is due (The Norwegian Loan Fund for education). Payment schedule for the whole school year will be sent out before start up in August. Due to national rules, international students from outside the European Union have to pay for the whole year in advance, before application for visa can be sent and handled by UDI.
