How are tuition fees paid?

By accepting DHU’s offer of admission and enrolling in classes, students accept responsibility for paying all fees to the University for which they are liable, including tuition fees.

While the University acknowledges parents’ financial support, payment is the responsibility of the student. Students may authorise parents or others to access their DHU account and make payments on their behalf through appropriate available channels.

Parents can also contact the Bursary Department at 09-424 2468 with questions about the University bill. However, information specific to a student account is only discussed with individuals authorised by the student to receive such information.

Financial Aid
DHU has one of the strongest financial assistance programmes. These financial assistance programmes are need-based, meaning that all aid eligibility is determined by a family’s financial circumstances. While you and your students have the primary responsibility for paying for University, financial assistance can bridge the gap between the total costs and the ability to pay.

Why should I attend an information session?
At DHU, our information session is meant to help you understand how DHU is distinctive from the many other universities, not to simply review facts and figures. Through student and faculty stories, we hope to offer you a better sense of DHU’s “personality.” We want you to leave with a sense of this institutional identity, as well as an understanding of what we have to offer, how our application process works and how you may fit into our community. The campus tour complements the information session nicely, so scheduling a tour along with this session will offer a complete and well-rounded introduction to DHU.
A campus tour is also a great way for you to interact with our students. Led by a member of our Student Affair Department, tours offer an opportunity to capture and understand the energy of DHU through the eyes of students who are living the DHU experience. A tour will also better demonstrate the ways in which the physical campus and facilities reflect our useful and engaged approach to teaching. Scheduling an information session with your tour will provide a full introduction to DHU.
To schedule your visit, call the marketing office at Hotline: 1-300-88-4226 or telephone: +609 4242 400.

The module and teaching materials will be in English. However, the University understands that not all of DHU’s potential students are proficient in English. Therefore, for the 1st year, the programmes will be conducted in both Malay and English.
