In order to make payments, the client registers on PAYPAL website and adds the details of the card(s) that he/she wants to use to make online payments. Then he/she can make payments by clicking the PayPal button on any website that offers this type of payment. By using a username and password, the Client can make and manage payments for purchases at online stores and E-commerce websites worldwide.

In the left-side menu at Inforestud@nte, in the option “Tuition Fees”, choose this payment method by means of a specific button and follow the instructions.
