To apply to a Chinese university through CUCAS, no service fee is needed. However, each individual university you apply to will charge their own application fee which CUCAS is authorized to collect on their behalf.
CUCAS service fee has been waived since 20th Jan, 2014.
>>According to the agreements between CUCAS & China’s universities, CUCAS does the collection of application fees for universities.
>>Paying the application fee (usually between 60 to 120 US dollars) is the prerequisite of an applicant getting the chance of enrollment.
>>Since universities in China only accept payment in RMB, CUCAS is responsible for the commission for a foreign exchange & remittance for universities.
>>The application fee for Beijing Language & Culture University is RMB 600 or RMB 800, the same as posted on its website. CUCAS converts Renminbi into US dollars on the CUCAS website for students' convenience.
