Online Payment Now Possible through the HSE Website
An Online Payments page has been launched on the HSE website. You can now use your contract number to make online payments not only for full-degree studies, but also accommodation at dormitories, as well as continuing and business education. Note that you can only pay online if your contract is in Russian roubles. All payments in other currencies should be still made via bank transfers.
The full service package is already active for the Moscow campus. It includes payments for full-degree studies, continuing and business education, dormitories and events, and any other services offered by the university. Regional campuses also offer similar options (with some exceptions).
According to Sergey Karagodin, Deputy Head of the Finance and Planning Office, they are also planning to make payments easier for those users who prefer to pay with traditional bills by the end of 2016. The HSE Payments page will include an option for generating and printing out a bill with a QR code. Such bills can be paid at Sberbank offices, via ATMs, payment terminals, as well as internet services and online banking systems.
