Section 1: General principles of the system of tuition fee payment
This financial regulation has been designed to codify the amount of tuition paid by Iranian and international students and has become imperative with the approval of the board of trustees of the university.
The amount of fee for first-year students in every academic semester in each year is determined based on the announcement of the Ministry of Health and Medical Education or National Organization of Educational Testing for students with at least 12 credits (equivalent to an academic semester). If not announced by the ministry, the fees will be determined by the board of trustees of the university with a 10% annual increase.
Note 1: The tuition fee of students of previous years are updated and calculated based on the latest circular of the Ministry of Health and Medical Education.
Note 2: The university is allowed to calculate the fee of international students in the form of international foreign currency based on the rate announced by Iran central bank without an annual 10% increase based on acceptance year and receive a locked fee until the end of the academic course in order to facilitate the attraction of international students based on the permissions of the ministry of health formerly accepted by the university, if desired by international students (non-Iranian).
