Student Loan
Being a nonprofit organization, the university charges subsidized fee from all its students.

This assistance is subject to renewal every semester in the light of student's academic performance and financial need. The financial assistance is limited to the tuition fees only and discontinued if the student's CGPA falls below 2.0.

The repayment of loan starts three months after graduation. The total amount has to be paid within a period of four years after graduation. Students are required to sign a contract allowing future employers to deduct loan repayments at source and remit them to the University.

All those who are admitted and are in the real need of financial aid should apply on the prescribed Financial Aid form.

At each FAST-NU campus, one scholarship will be offered to the student who gets first position in the BS degree program, and is admitted to the MS or PhD program. The scholarship will cover the entire tuition fee for the course and will continue subject to satisfactory academic progress.
