Post Secondary Education Account (PSEA)

The PSEA scheme is administered by the Ministry of Education (MOE) which allows students to utilise the funds in their own and/or their siblings’ PSEA accounts for the payment of tuition fee and annual fees (excludes hostel fees and late fees) as well as course fees for enrichment programmes approved by SIT, such as the Overseas Immersion Programme.

Eligibility Criteria:

Full-time undergraduates who have a PSEA account. The PSEA scheme also allows students to utilise their siblings’ PSEA funds for the payment of their tuition fees and annual fees.

Quantum:

Up to 100% of tuition fee and annual fees payable by student, subject to availability of funds.

1. STANDING ORDER ARRANGEMENT

On-going withdrawal for payment of both tuition fees and compulsory annual fees. Once Standing Order is established, funds equivalent to your total tuition and annual fees or your available PSEA funds (whichever is lower) will be automatically withdrawn each semester. (Example: If you have $4000 in PSEA funds and your semester’s tuition and annual fees are $3,300, a total of $3,300 will be withdrawn from the PSEA account).

1A. STANDING ORDER FORM SUBMISSION

Matriculated students: 1 month before the commencement of the next semester/trimester

*Note: If students intend to use PSEA funds to pay only a portion of the tuition or miscellaneous fees, please complete the PSEA Ad Hoc Withdrawal Form instead.

2. AD HOC WITHDRAWALS

PSEA Ad Hoc Withdrawal Form is to be completed for one-time withdrawal (annual fees / tuition fees / fee for enrichment programme / Overseas Immersion Programme (OIP) / Overseas Exposure Programme (OEP)) for any one particular semester/trimester.

*Note: If you intend to use PSEA funds for payment of annual fees for each subsequent semester, you are required to submit a new Ad Hoc Withdrawal form for each semester.

2A. AD-HOC WITHDRAWAL FORM SUBMISSION

Please submit your Adhoc Withdrawal Form for the payment of tuition fees after you have received your Fee Advice.
