Financial Information

Planning in Advance

In planning to attend Asia-Pacific International University, careful consideration should be given to the cost of education. Both parents and students view such cost as an investment and not simply as an expense.

Students, parents, and guardians are encouraged to carefully plan their financial resources in advance to cover the cost of programs of study undertaken at Asia-Pacific International University. The University requires that student accounts are kept current each semester in order for scheduled study to proceed. It is the students’ responsibility (along with parents, guardians, or sponsors) not to allow accounts to get into arrears and thus interrupt study sequences.

Students should work closely with the Student Finance Officer to complete financial arrangements prior to registration each semester and determine payment arrangements. Any forms of financial assistance that may apply or for which a student might be eligible can be discussed at this time.

Southeast Asian Regional Students

The following schedule of charges is provided so that students who live within the territory of the Southeast Asian Union Mission of Seventh-day Adventists (the countries of Brunei, Cambodia, Laos, Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand, and Vietnam) can calculate the cost of education in advance and make arrangements to finance their study program. The rates are adjusted annually to reflect changing economic conditions in Thailand.

All prices are listed in Thai Baht.

Campus Work-Study Program

In line with the Adventist philosophy of education, Asia-Pacific International University provides work opportunities to develop the skills of students and to enable them to help finance their study. Work experience is a valuable and integral part of learning. Work opportunities, however, are limited and in granting work assignments preference will be given to students who need work as part of their financial plan. The amount of work assigned depends on the student’s financial need as well as class load and academic performance. In general, Freshmen and Sophomores work on the grounds, cafeteria or plant services.
