Pay in full or in installments?

The digital direct debit authorization  gives you  the option of paying in full or in installments. When you enroll or re-enroll in September, the tuition fees are debited in 10 installments. 

In case of payment in full, we do not charge an administration fee. 

Please note the following about paying in installments: 

  • HAN charges an administration fee for the installment method. This fee is regulated by law and amounts to €24.00 per academic year. This amount is debited together with the 1st installment. In other words, the 1st installment is €24.00 higher than the other 9 installments. 
  • No amounts are debited in the months of July and August. Payment of the total tuition fees are spread over 10 direct debit dates; in case of enrollment in February, payment is spread over 5 direct debit dates 
  • In case of enrollment in February, the 1st direct debit is higher than the subsequent direct debits.

When are the installments debited?

Enrollment can only be terminated as of the 1st of the following month (or a later month which you can indicate in Studielink). You can’t retroactively terminate your enrollment. Once you terminate your enrollment, you’re entitled to a refund. The amount is 1/12th of the total tuition fees for each remaining month. This refund will be paid within 6 weeks after terminating your enrollment. There is an exception though. Are you terminating your enrollment as of July or August? Then you are not entitled to any refund of paid tuition fees.
