The following sections are only relevant for students admitted prior to school year 2018-19.
Nomination Rights or Annual Levy
Students admitted to CIS prior to the school year 2018-19 are not required to pay the aforementioned Annual Capital Levy introduced from 2018-19, but must either be nominated under a Nomination Right or pay an Annual Levy.
A parent of a child admitted to CIS prior to 2018-19 may elect to pay an Annual Levy as an alternative to a CNR or PNR.
Once an applicant has been admitted, the applicant family will be asked to confirm acceptance and hold the student's place with immediate payment of the relevant fees for either a Personal Nomination Right (HK$75,000); or the Annual Levy (HK$17,500) plus the sum of HK$52,500 which will be credited to the first term tuition payment - i.e., a total sum of HK$70,000 (HK$17,500 + HK$52,500) is required to secure a student's place.
A PNR is acquired upon the student being enrolled into CIS. As such, and unlike the CNR, it does NOT confer any priority in the application or admissions process.
A PNR is issued in the name of the parent or guardian of a student and is for the use of the student on whose behalf that Nomination Right is issued.
It is non-transferable.
PNRs issued before the school year 2012-13
Before 2012-13, PNRs were issued at a price of HK$75,000. They entitle the relevant student to complete his/her schooling at CIS on the terms set out in the old PNR certificate.
These old PNRs may be redeemed in full when the enrolled student leaves the school. Some families choose to donate the PNR redemption amount to the school.
PNRs issued starting from the school year 2012-13
Starting from 2012-13, a separate PNR has been required to attend Primary and Secondary, respectively. Therefore, a student admitted after 2012-13 but prior to 2018-19 and attending both Primary and Secondary at CIS will require two PNRs during their course of study.
The current cost of a PNR is HK$75,000 although this may be reviewed and adjusted from time to time. This amount is paid upon enrollment.
Subject as mentioned below, the PNR may be redeemed when the student leaves CIS. However, the amount of the PNR which will be reimbursed on redemption is subject to reduction over the course of 7-years on a pro rata basis (calculated as set out below). Any reimbursement will only be made at the end of the school year and outstanding fees will, as usual, be deducted from the amount of the reimbursement.
Upon leaving CIS, some families choose to donate any remaining PNR redemption amount to the school. This is easy to arrange and gratefully appreciated. Please contact the Advancement Office at Tel. 2512-5882, firstname.lastname@example.org for more information. A receipt will be issued as for a cash donation.
The amount reimbursable is as follows, and is applicable to PNRs for both Primary and Secondary:
