Students who are not able to settle the tuition fees for a term by the stipulated deadline must apply for ‘Late Payment of Tuition Fees’ during the designated period of the term.
Applications must be based on students’ genuine financial situation, and that of their dependent family members. Pending financial assistance disbursement from the Government or other agencies would not constitute automatic payment deadline extension; students must submit an application. The University may request provision of related proof and/or other documents substantiating students’ financial situation for consideration.
Details of late payment application arrangements of each term will be announced by email. In general, students will be required to submit an online application form and pay a late payment deposit via the ePayment platform during the designated period. The University will not process the application if students have failed to do so.
The late payment deposit is set as $5,000. Once it has been paid, the deposit is non-refundable and non-transferable. It will count towards the tuition fees payable. Therefore the remaining balance will be the original tuition fees amount minus the late payment deposit.
The University will review the late payment applications based on the justification (and documents received, if applicable). Students may be requested to provide clarification or additional documents. An interview for late payment application may also be conducted if necessary.
Application results will be announced by University email:
- If the application is approved, students will be informed of the new extended payment deadline which is set at the full discretion of the University. The extended deadline would still be within term period.
- If the application is not approved, students will be required to settle the remaining balance during a specified short period after result notification.
Please also note that, despite approved late payment, there could be related conditions or restrictions regarding various government subsidy schemes and access to certain University services. Students are advised to read the important notes of application carefully prior to submission.
