FOR PAYMENT OF BOTH TUITION FEES & COMPULSORY MISCELLANEOUS FEES (ON-GOING PAYMENTS)

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

(Example: If you have $4000 in PSEA funds and your semester’s tuition and misc fees are $3300, a total of $3300 will be withdrawn from the PSEA account).

Note:
If you intend to use the PSEA funds for the payment of your miscellaneous fees only (and not your tuition fees), please complete the PSEA Adhoc Withdrawal form provided below. (DO NOT complete the Standing Order form).
