Schools in the UAE require payment of 500 dirhams

They claim that the requirement for private schools to pay 500 dirhams to reserve a seat by the end of May is a burden. Schools should also consider students who did not request a transfer certificate to another school to continue their classes, taking into account their families' financial circumstances, especially since many of them have three students in the school and will be unable to pay 1,500 dirhams or more in exchange for reserving seats for their children before they finish paying the rest of the fees. tuition.

They stated that failing to secure a seat early may result in the student being denied re-registration for the following academic year, and demanded that their situations be considered and that they agree to reserve seats in exchange for post-dated cheques.

Private schools, for their part, confirmed that they opened the door for reserving school seats from the beginning of last March to the end of this month, and that they sent text messages to kids' families pressing them to hasten payment of the value of reserving seats.

She further stated that failure to pay the fee for reserving the academic seat will result in the registration of other students, and the student will not be registered in her classes for the following academic year.

She stated that the number of vacant seats assists schools in determining the number of new students, and that seat reservation fees are not refundable if students' families cancel their children's re-registration in the classrooms, and that it will be considered as part of the tuition fees for the next academic year and deducted from the total value of the tuition fees if the student decides to stay in school.

She said that some kids' families pay the cost of reserving a seat, but then transfer their children to other schools before the start of the school year, causing uncertainty in the registration offices of private schools before the start of the next academic year.
