Disbursement of funds

For students who are using a combination of loans &/or subsidies to settle their MOE subsidised tuition fees, the disbursement sequence is as follows:  
  1. Mendaki Tertiary Tuition fee Subsidies (MTTFS) where applicable.
  2. PSEA funds where applicable.
  3. CPF funds under the CPF Education Scheme where applicable.
  4. Tuition Fee Loan (TFL) where applicable.
  5. Study Loan (SL) where applicable.
  6. NTU/MOE/Donated Bursary where applicable.
  7. GIRO deduction from students' own account/other account (for those with a GIRO arrangement with NTU to pay their semestral tuition & compulsory miscellaneous fees).

The total disbursements shall not exceed the amount of tuition, compulsory miscellaneous and late fees payable.

 

PSEA STANDING ORDER (SO)

For ongoing withdrawal of PSEA fund to pay for BOTH tuition fee & compulsory miscellaneous fees, a Standing Order (SO) has to be established with MOE.

Once the SO is established with MOE, funds equivalent to your total tuition fee & compulsory miscellaneous fees or your available PSEA funds (whichever is lower) will be automatically withdrawn each semester.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$4000 in PSEA funds and your semester's tuition fee & compulsory miscellaneous fees are $3300, a total of $3300 will be withdrawn from the PSEA account).

MOE will inform students of the application outcome. A monthly Transaction Statement will be sent to the account holder if there are PSEA contributions, withdrawal or refund transactions in the previous month.
