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


Until further notice, we do not accept check payments.



Applicants who do not attain the minimum required English proficiency scores but meet other SGUB admission standards and requirements, will be admitted, but must complete the Intensive English program.

Accepted applicants will be asked to make a commitment by providing an registration deposit.
