Tuition and Registration Fees

Registration Fee

USD 300, non-refundable and deductible from the last installment.

Tuition Rate
SGUB uses a flat-rate tuition for full-time undergraduate students in the Faculty of Arts and Sciences. Every major has a cost per credit-hour; which is used to determine the total tuition of the student. Students enrolled in 12-18 credit-hours will have their tuition fees calculated for 12 credit hours. Students registered in fewer than 12 credit-hours will be charged per credit; any credits beyond the 18 will also be charged per credit.

One FAS credit = USD 400

One year cost (12-18 credits) = USD 9,600

One semester cost (12-18 credits) = USD 4,800

For AY 2023-2024, the tuition is charged as follows:

30% in Fresh USD = USD 2,880

70% in LBP at the official rate (Today LBP 15,000) = LBP 100,800,000

Tuition Payments

The Tuition Fees can be paid in 4 instalments:

1- Before September 5th, 2023: USD 700, and LBP 25,200,000.
2- Before November 4th, 2023: USD 700, and LBP 25,200,000.
