University of Johannesburg Tuition Fees


1 How payment can be effected

  • Payments may be made at the official cashiers of the University of Johannesburg (UJ). Office hours are from 08:30 to 15:30 Monday to Friday and on Wednesday from 08:30 to 14:00.
  • Credit Card and Debit Cards are accepted. Unfortunately, no postal or money order payments will be accepted.
  • The student’s name and student number should be stated clearly when payments are made.

If a bank dishonours a cheque, students will be liable for the bank administration fee of R200.00.

  • Students and parents can use the debit order system whereby the outstanding balance (with the exception of the first minimum payment), can be paid in eight equal instalments from 1 March to 1 October. This method of payment has the following advantages:
  • Payments can be made over an eight-month period, leaving the student/parent with a better cash-flow situation;
  • No interest is levied as long as the debit order is honoured;
  • Payments cannot go astray;  and
  • It saves time.
  • Payments can also be made at any ABSA Bank branch.
