TEXTBOOK DEPOSIT POLICY

At UTS, we care about the environment and we value community contribution. With the purpose of educating students on how to take care of their textbooks and use them properly so that these books can be reused by other students of lower grades, UTS has decided to implement the Textbook Deposit Program. From this program, we expect that students will begin to understand the positive environmental and econimical impact that they can have, just by one simple action!

Cost optimization for parents: Instead of buying the books to use for only 1 year, now parents have another option to save cost by paying for an annual “usage fee”.

This program can be applied for all students from Grade 6 to 11 for their Math textbooks and Grade 7 to 8 for their Science textbooks (IP program).

FEES

Parents will pay a deposit of 5,000,000 VND at the beginning of the school year.

At the end of the school year, the usage fee (40% of the book price) and any repair/replacement charges will be quoted and refunded at the end of the school year.

Fee Amount
Deposit 5,000,000
Annual usage Fee 40% x UTS unit selling price

BOOK BORROWING POLICIES

Books are to be returned at least one (01) week before the end of the school year.

Each book has a unique barcode; students are required to return the same book that they borrowed.

In case of a lost book, the students can buy a new one to replace the lost one or contact UTS to purchase a replacement. All the costs will be paid by the students. The deposit is non-refundable. The students need to sign up for a new deposit or borrow books from other students to meet class requirements in the mean time.

Any action of photocopying the textbooks is highly forbidden.

At the end of the school year, the books will be evaluated and the family will be charged with a repair/replacement fee (if any).

Below is the conditions for repairs and replacement fees. UTS will have the final decision on all matters related to condition of the books.
