Returning NSmen

Thank you for your service and contribution to our nation. Academic places offered to NSmen will be deferred till after the completion of your full-time national service.

Singapore Citizens and Permanent Residents (PRs)

Singapore Citizens and PRs who are required to fulfil their National Service may apply within the stipulated application period. Successful applicants will have a place reserved until they complete their full-time National Service.

Returning NSmen (RNS) 

You will be contacted by SIT Admissions in January of the year of your enrolment to SIT. Please confirm acceptance at the SIT application portal by March in order to be matriculated into your degree programme. Please refer to the System User Guide to confirm acceptance.

Applying for Change of Programme

It is recommended that Returning National Servicemen (RNS) should confirm acceptance for their reserved programme, even if they wish to apply for a different programme in the year of enrolment. If the RNS is successful in his new application, his new offer will supersede the reserved programme. If his new application is unsuccessful, he would still have retained his place in the reserved programme, based on his initial acceptance.

To apply for a different programme, access the SIT application portal during the admissions period from mid-January to mid-March during your enrolment year. 

Should you wish to retain your place in the reserved programme after successfully applying for another programme, please email Admissions Division at All requests are reviewed based on a case-by-case basis.
