Policy on Deferment/ Extension
The policy on deferment:
Students who join the College from the period within the first two weeks of course commencement will be considered late enrolment.
Students who join the College from the 3rd week onwards following the course commencement will be considered as deferred enrolment.
Students who are considered as deferred enrolment will need to write a letter stating the reasons for deferment to the Principal/Management team for approval.
Students will only be allowed to join the new course in the following month after approval from the Principal/Management team.
As students are given a certain time limit to enter Singapore (usually 2 months after issuance of the In-Principle Approval (IPA) letter, in sync with the validity stated on the IPA letter), students are considered as deferred enrolment should they join the College between the 3rd week of the classes and the time limit.
If there is no appearance of the students after the time limit of 2 months and there is no request of withdrawal from the students, they will be automatically deemed as withdrawn from the College. The Administration Executive will proceed to carry out the withdrawal procedures for the student.
