FAQ about the application process

What happens if my registration fee doesn't arrive in 8 days? (students only)

Please make the payment of the registration fee asap, because myCSI system will automatically delete your application if your registration fee doesn't arrive in time. In this case we will be very sorry because you will have to fill out a new application all over again and upload the files once more.

When is the application deadline?

You can see the deadlines in our timetable in Apply menu. Please note that application periods start and end at different dates, depending on your chosen role (student / visitor / volunteer).

What does tuition fee discount deadline mean? (students only)

If you submit your application after the deadline, you cannot apply for tuition fee discount.

How can I meet the deadline? How do you know when I've finished my application?

Since myCSI lets you log in, start your application, then log out, and continue some other time, we could never be sure of the point when you no longer want to make changes to your application. This is why you have to decide the point when you don't want to make any more changes, and at this point you have to submit your application on the Summary page. Now we know you are ready, and we can also see if you have met the deadline.

How can I apply for tuition fee discount? (students only)
