NSSF membership fees
USD 400 per academic year, paid in LBP at the official BDL rate.
Students already affiliated to the NSSF or to an equivalent fund (Cooperatives, military, judges and lawyers, Lebanese University, municipalities) are required to submit an official paper at the NSSF Delegate Office.
Students who are not affiliated to the NSSF are required to fill in an exemption form at the NSSF Delegate Office.
In both cases, this process should be completed before the scheduled deadline, i.e., end of September (See Academic Calendar).
Students who fail to abide by this deadline will not be able to benefit from the NSSF coverage, and the above fees will be automatically credited to their account upon the 2nd payment of tuition fees.
N.B.: Any person above 30 is exempted from the above fees and hence is not required to pass by the NSSF Delegate Office.

Throughout the Financial Aid Office, USEK provides help to students facing financial difficulties. And it continues to do so, according to its mission, through discounts or installment facilities. The relevant application should then be duly completed and submitted within the set deadlines. As such, students with financial problems may contact the SSO before the scheduled deadline (See Academic Calendar). Beyond this date, students can only contact the SSO in order to pay their tuition fees in installments.

The cost of a credit is not related to the School/Faculty to which the student is affiliated, but rather to the School/Faculty that gives the credit in question.
In case of financial problems, proceed to the USEK Financial Aid Office.

Payment Procedure

The student should install his tuition fees in three payments per semester and two payments for the Summer Session.

Failure to comply with a payment installment, as defined in the Academic Calendar, leads to a monthly financial penalty calculated according to the student’s due amount. It is the responsibility of each student to make sure that his tuition fees were paid within the deadlines established by the administration of the University.


No refunds are granted unless in case of deregistration, and this as defined by the academic regulations.
