Application fee

To confirm the will of taking part in the admission procedure to the second-cycle programmes, you have to pay the application fee.
The application fee amount for the 2018/2019 admission is 75 PLN or 18 EUR, or 20 USD.
The fee is paid separately for each registration and each registration has its own bank account number assigned for the payment.

Candidates choose currency upon registration, once the currency is chosen, it cannot be changed.

Application fee may only be paid by a bank transfer. We do not accept checks, and you cannot pay by credit card, money order, or cash directly at our Department of Admissions office.

Bank transfer details

Application fee should be paid to an individual bank account, separate for each registration, which will be generated in your OAS account once you register for a programme (look for it in the registration card under "application fee" tab. Notice that six last digits of the bank account number match your registration number.

Paybynet online payment

You might make an online payment of application fee by Paybynet. It is the fastest payment method, available for payments made in Polish złoty (75 PLN). Once you register, Paybynet online payment will become available in your registration card, in the “application fee” tab. You can use the system by clicking “Pay online”, and then choosing the bank for online payment. List of supported banks can be found here.

NOTE: this service is only available for application fee paid in Polish złoty (PLN). EUR and USD payments are not supported.

Application fee deadline

Application fee should be paid by the last day of the "Registration and application fee payment" period, in accordance with the current admission schedule. If you fail to pay the fee within this deadline, your registration will not be confirmed and your application will not be considered.

Payment in a foreign bank

If you want to pay your application fee in a bank that operates outside of Poland, you should insert the following SWIFT code before the bank account number: PKOPPLPW.

Application fee refund

Candidates are only eligible for a full or partial fee refund if:

  • they have mistakenly transferred an amount of money exceeding the required application fee (in such case the candidate is responsible for all and any handling charges in relation with refunding or reclassifying the funds),
  • the programme has not opened this year,
  • their registration was cancelled before the "Registration and application fee payment" deadline passed,
  • they have made a late payment (after the "Registration and application fee payment" deadline has passed) resulting in not confirming their registration.

Application fee paid in the correct amount, which resulted in confirming of a registration for which the candidate has received a Faculty Admission Board decision about admittance or denial of admittance to the programme cannot be refunded.


  • Currency is chosen once upon registration and cannot be changed afterwards. If you pay your application fee in a different currency than declared, it will not be registered.
  • The bank account number generated for the registration is only used for paying the application fee for the given programme, and only in name of the person who is registering for the programme. It cannot be used for making any other payments (it is not the account for student ID fee, tuition, friends' application fees etc.)
  • Online Application System is not a bank system so booking of the payments always takes about two days. There is no need to use express transfers. To speed up registering your fee, we recommend making the payment with a bank transfer or directly at the PEKAO S.A. Bank.
  • All refunds of application fees are completed after the JU admission period fully closes (usually mid-November). When this time comes, you will be asked to provide a bank account number for the transfer in your OAS account.
  • All and any handling charges related to the transfer, refunds, reclassification of funds are candidate's responsibility.
