Transfer/Withdrawal Policy & Procedures
SHRI Academy has a Transfer/Withdrawal Policy that takes care of various kinds of transfer and withdrawals (voluntary or involuntary) that happen prior to the completion of a current course. Such requests must be submitted to SHRI Academy in writing as verbal requests will not be accepted. All requests are subjected to SHRI Academy’s approval.
Students will be informed within 4 weeks from the date of Transfer/Withdrawal request made with relevant supporting documents (if any). Students aged below 18 years old must seek the approval of their parents/guardians before the request for Transfer/Withdrawal is submitted to SHRI Academy.
FPS provider will be updated within 3 working days once the student’s status for the Transfer/Withdrawal has been confirmed/approved.
Transfer can take place prior to the completion of the current course, in the following scenarios:
E.g. Change from Diploma in Business & HRM to Diploma in Organisational Psychology
Students who wish to transfer must fill up the Student Transfer, Deferment & Withdrawal Form provided by the Programme Manager/Executive. All requests are subject to SHRI Academy’s approval. Students will be informed of the outcome in writing. Once approved, a new Letter of Offer will be issued and a new Student Contract will be drawn up.
Application Fee and Course Fees paid are not transferable and not refundable. Any unconsumed course fees from the current course may be credited to the next course for successful applications and subjects to the Management’s approval.
If the unconsumed course fees is more than the course fees payable for the new course, all fees made will not be refunded. If the unconsumed course fee is less than the course fee payable for the new course, student needs to pay the fees difference.
For students who are under funding scheme (e.g. SDF), the funding approved for the current course will cease. The student and/or their sponsoring company are responsible to pay back the funded portion of the current course in the event the funding is ceased. The student and/or their sponsoring company are responsible for the requirement to submit a new application for funding for the new course. In the event the funding is not approved, the student and/or their sponsoring company are required to pay back the difference in fees for the new course immediately.
Deferment refers to students taking a temporary break in their course. Students must submit the Student Transfer, Deferment & Withdrawal Form obtainable from the Programme Manager/Executive and pay a Deferment Fee of $214.00 (inclusive of 7%GST). Students will be informed of the outcome in writing. It is the onus of the student to check with the Programme Manager/Executive on the resumption of course and to complete his/her studies within the maximum duration of the course as stated in the outcome letter.
If no official notice is received from the student, he/she is deemed to be still a student of SHRI Academy and is liable for the course fee in lieu of notice. Any unconsumed course fees paid may be credited (subject to Management’s approval) to the next term when the students return to resume their studies with SHRI Academy.
- Withdrawal on Voluntary Basis
Withdrawal on voluntary basis refers to discontinuing a course prior to the completion of the current course. Students who wish to withdraw must fill up Student Transfer, Deferment & Withdrawal Form obtainable from the Programme Manager/Executive. Once the application is processed, the students will be served a letter confirming withdrawal within 7 working days; the Student Contract will be terminated and the student is no longer deemed to be a student of SHRI Academy. The Fee Protection Scheme account will also be terminated.
If no official notice of a student withdrawing from a course is received, the student is still deemed as active and is liable for the course fee.
Subsequent instalment payments may be waived if withdrawal is made before the next instalment is due.
- Withdrawal on Involuntary Basis
This occurs as a result of misconduct (e.g. caught for breaking Singapore’s law, cheating during examination, etc.) or unsatisfactory academic progress. Students are issued with Warning Letter(s) and their parents/guardians (students below 18 years old) are informed formally when there is any misconduct or failure to meet the attendance requirements. The followings are categorised as Withdrawal on Involuntary basis:
For Suspension, students are allowed to return to resume their studies within the stipulated timeframe, as indicated in the Suspension Letter.
- Dismissal (or Expulsion)
Students are informed by SHRI Academy that they are no longer allowed to attend their course due to misconduct or unsatisfactory academic progress.
- Dismissal due to Poor Attendance
Students with poor attendance will be dismissed from SHRI Academy after repeated counselling and warnings. All fees paid are not refundable and not transferable.
- Dismissal due to Disciplinary Issues
Students who do not improve after written and/or verbal warnings for their unacceptable behaviours that negatively affect themselves or disrupt other students’ learning will be dismissed. Cases of major misconduct can lead to immediate dismissal by the Disciplinary Committee.
- Withdrawal Due to Non-Attendance
A student who has not attended class for more than 1 month without approval and is not contactable is deemed as Withdrawn. Such student is not required to fill up the Student Transfer, Deferment & Withdrawal Form. FPS coverage shall be cancelled within 3 working days once the withdrawal status has been established and confirmed.
