Debt policy and procedures

Middlesex University Dubai - page banner_general5

This section of the regulations outlines the arrangements for collection of student fees and charges.  It covers sanctions which may be used in relation to students with overdue debts and is designed to ensure that all students are treated fairly and equitably.

If students fail to pay their tuition fees or any other charges on time, access to university services including Library, Computing and other facilities will be withdrawn and their enrolment may be revoked.  Such students will face a “Financial Hold” on their MISIS student records. Persistent failure by enrolled students to meet financial or material obligations to the University may lead to the suspension or exclusion of a student.

If students are unable to pay any fees or charges by the appropriate due date, they should contact the Finance Office at the earliest opportunity, as we may be able to help with alternative (non-standard) payment plans.  The University will be sympathetic and assist where it can, however the quality of teaching is dependent upon funding and so it must act to recover all outstanding debts. To find out more, students should contact the Finance Office team:

• in person in the

• by email at

• by telephone on

Students must note that documentary evidence to support their request will be required before it can be considered. This information needs to be at hand prior to contacting the Finance Office. These decisions are entirely at Middlesex University Dubai’s discretion; are final and are not subject to appeal. Alternative payment plans will be limited to the term in which the request is made and no further extensions will be granted.

Students with outstanding debts will not be entitled to enrol to continue further with their programme of study.

The University reserves the right to withhold the conferment of qualifications unless or until all fees for tuition, residence, student visa and other sums due to the University have been paid, and/or rightful property of the University returned.

The University is entitled to withhold any assessment feedback, grades or marks gained whilst a student has outstanding debts. No candidate shall have an automatic entitlement to be notified of their results or to receive a certificate or transcript.

Deregistration for non-payment of tuition fees and other outstanding charges

Students who fail to pay their tuition fees and other outstanding charges or provide confirmation of sponsorship will be de-registered at the end of learning week four. The option to pay tuition fees by instalments available at the start of the academic year will no longer be available. 

Students who fail to pay the second or any subsequent instalment within 1 month of the due date will also be subject to deregistration.

Re-instatement after deregistration

Any student who has been deregistered will be required to pay the remainder of the annual tuition fee in full plus the late payment charges in order to be re-instated. Students must note that delays in re-instatement may have significant consequences for academic progress (such as missed assessment opportunities).
