    Asslam O Alailkum
    Dear Sir,
    Syed Najjaf Abbas from Oman just want to understand for Fee of Bachelour Programm is it 450 Usd for Each Semester i need to pay of total in 2 years fee will be 440 or 450 usd payable in four semesters.
    and improtant i dont have now a days attested copies can i get admission and can submit later.

    Thanks and Best Regards

    • Coordinator Overseas

      Dear Najaf, The fee for one course/subject of BA is USD 110 and Registration fee is USD 10. Thus for first semester where you take 4 courses total fee including registration fee is 450 USD. In next semesters you can calculate the fee on same formula, the registration fee will be charged once in your lifetime and will not be charged again even if you take admission in another programme. I hope you understand fee calculation.
      2. You need to submit attested copies of your documents, any officer can attest your copies like Principal of Pakistani Schools, Embassy Officials or Bank Managers etc.

  28. Thanx for sharing such useful post keep it up 🙂
