Tuition and Fees

All students are required to make a financial contribution to the cost of their education at Excelsior Community  College.
Fee Structure - Local Students
The Government of Jamaica makes a contribution to the tuition fees for Jamaican students enrolled in most  programmes. However, students are still required to pay fees approved by the Ministry of Education for the following:

  • Contribution to tuition fees on “cost sharing” basis
  • Examination fees (excluding external examinations)
  • Ancillary (Identification card, Student Union, Student Welfare Fund)
  • Personal Accident Insurance
  • Other Services

In addition, all students are expected to pay a registration fee. Information pertaining to the amount may be had from the Student Affairs office.

Fee Structure - International Students
International students will be required to pay the above fees but will also be expected to bear the full cost of tuition as the Government of Jamaica does not  contribute to the tuition of non-nationals.
