The school is funded by the public and by student school fees. State support 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 is syncronized with the scholarship from Lånekassen (The Norwegian Loan Fund for education). Payment schedule for the whole school year will be sent out in good time before start up. 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.
