What is a Tuition Relief Scholarship? (Special Funding for Covid-19)
Are there any costs?

Tuition Relief Scholarship Program is the Silicon Valley Business Institute’s (SVBI) attempt to help students in reducing the cost of their education. This scholarship is exclusive to SVBI’s Online MBA degree program in 2021.

Through our unique education model, we have removed most of the fees for students. However, in order to keep SVBI running, to take care of all the processing work, and to provide excellent services to our students, we have kept some small amount of fees.

  • Enrollment Fee:
  • Students are required to pay a one-time non-refundable enrollment fee of $50 after signing the admission offer.
  • Course Assessment Fee:

In order to obtain credit towards an MBA degree, students are required to pay an assessment fee of $200 per course at the end of the course.

  • Semester Fee:

Students are required to pay a fee of $200 at the beginning of each semester.

This fee could be used to assess one-course credit at the end of the course (as an alternative course assessment fee, see above).

Total Costs per semester:

  • One Course Assessment Fees: $200
  • Enrollment fee of $50(only charge in once of the whole program )
