    Students who withdraw:

    • A student who withdraws from a programme of study by the end of the first 3 weeks of the start of term in any academic year, will have his or her liability to pay tuition fees for that year cancelled. Any tuition fees paid will be refunded.
    • A student who withdraws from a programme of study before the end of the first term in any academic year will be charged 50% of the original tuition fee for the programme.
    • A student who withdraws from a programme of study after the end of the first term but before the end of the second term in any academic year, will be charged 75% of the original tuition fee for the programme.

    Students who suspend/or are suspended:

    • A student who suspends their programme of study by the end of the first 5 weeks of the start of term in any academic year will have his or her liability to pay tuition fees for that year cancelled. Any tuition fees paid will be returned.
    • A student who suspends their programme of study (other than cases due to debt) after the first five weeks of term but before the end of the second term will bear liability for tuition fees that have not yet been charged, cancelled. Any tuition fees already paid will be refunded, less 50% of the total tuition fee for the programme.
    • A student who suspends their programme of study (other than cases due to debt) after the end of the second term, will have any liability for tuition fees which have not yet been charged, cancelled. Any tuition fees paid will be retained by UoRM.

    Note: No bursary will be applicable when a student withdraws from a programme of study. Please consult your Tutor before submitting the ‘Withdrawal Form’ to Student Services.

  • Late Payment of Fees Open or Close

    Find out more on how to avoid additional charges for late payment of fees

    Payment of the second instalment of tuition fees is required by the first day of the second semester. (For full-time students).

    If you fail to make the payment, a RM10.00 fine will be incurred for each day (including weekends and public holidays) of the delayed settlement. Therefore, we kindly urge you to make the necessary arrangements to avoid this.

  • How To Pay Your Fees Open or Close

    Option 1
    Payment of 50% of the total tuition fee is made prior to or at enrolment for Foundation, Undergraduate and Postgraduate students. Enrolment will not be completed until this payment is made. If payment of the balance of fees (50%) is not received within 4 weeks of the start of Term 2, your access to Blackboard will be removed on a temporary basis. Access will be reinstated once payment is received.

    If payment is not received by 30th June each year, you will not be allowed to progress to the next stage of your studies with UoRM. You will then be suspended from study and given the opportunity to pay and return to UoRM at a later date if at an intermediate point in your studies. If you are at the end of your studies and have not paid, your examination transcript will be withheld and you will not be permitted to graduate.

    In exceptional circumstances related to hardship and by prior agreement with the Chief Operating Officer, a local student may be permitted to pay their tuition fees in a maximum of four instalments. No such flexibility is permitted for international students.

    Option 2
    Payment of 100% of the total tuition fee is made prior to or at enrolment for Foundation, Undergraduate and Postgraduate students. If this option is taken, the student will receive an early payment discount of 5% from the total tuition fee net of any scholarship or bursary that you might have received. The discount will be related to the receipt of cleared funds by UoRM. Finance will check if the discount has been properly taken. If not, the student will be pursued for the balance of fees and the usual sanctions as set out above will apply for non-payment.

    If you take Option 2, then the sanctions set out in Option 1 are applicable.

    Prior to enrolment, you will be asked to indicate which fee payment option you wish to follow.

    The tuition fees payable are denominated in Ringgit Malaysia and shortfalls resulting from foreign currency transaction and bank charges must be paid by you.

    PAYMENTS CAN BE MADE BY:
