For students who do not receive financial aid from CEU, the general deposit is EUR 500. From this amount, EUR 300 will be credited towards the first installment of your tuition. CEU will keep the remaining EUR 200 as a damage deposit, which will be refunded before you leave, less any damage costs assessed or fees outstanding on your account.
