Please note the following:
  • The tuition rate applied is based on nationality, rather than on residency status, funding sources, or financial need.
  • Western women married to Lebanese men will pay the Lebanese tuition rate, as the Lebanese law allows them to obtain Lebanese citizenship.
  • Western men married to Lebanese women will pay the Lebanese tuition rate as well, even though the Lebanese law does not allow them to obtain Lebanese citizenship.
  • Application for financial assistance remains open to all students, regardless of the tuition rate applied to them, based on their family’s financial status and need, and provided they continue to meet academic standards and other graduate profile criteria satisfactorily. Applications for financial aid are received, and grants awarded, on a module-by-module basis.
  • Students should bear in mind that acquiring 18 credits in language study (about 270 hours)  may cost between $3000-$4000 over the 3 years.
