Capital Charges

The Ministry of Education had given its approval for the implementation of a capital charge per student each academic year since September 2005 which assist us in upgrading our existing whole school facilities. Please see fee schedule for the annual capital charge.
Details of recent capital projects at Doha College will be made available on request.
Parents are encouraged to make an appointment to visit and view Doha College facilities before submitting an application. The capital charge will be payable in full with the first terms fees. Capital charges are payable per student each academic year.

2. Parents unable to pay the fees by the due date must contact the College Accounts Office before the last day of the previous term and explain the reason for the failure. Failure to pay any amount owing to the College by the relevant due date will entitle the College to remove the student from the College Roll and debar the student from further attendance. In extreme cases however, the College may, in its sole discretion, accept a delayed fee payment.
