through the Online Notification to Withdraw (OWN) system via StudentLINK> Administrative Matters>
Withdrawal Notification.

The withdrawal will take effect from the date of endorsement by the University, and stated in the official
notification sent to the student’s NTU email account. Pending the receipt of the official notification/ effective
withdrawal date, you are still considered a current student of the University and will be required to attend
the lessons/ assessments/ examinations.
