Students / Attendance Requirement
IMPORTANT NOTE ON STUDENT ATTENDANCE REQUIREMENTS
It is expected that students having paid the course fees would aspire to reap the returns of their investment through successful completion of the course(s) enrolled for.
As a responsible Private Education Institution, STEi subscribes to the requirements of EduTrust and Immigration & Checkpoints Authority (ICA) (for International Students) to demand a very high student attendance as critical for the Students’ effective and successful completion of the Course(s).
Meeting prescribed student attendance is therefore critical and it is a STEi’s policy to meet the regulatory requirement of student attendance imposed by the Immigration & Checkpoints Authority (ICA) of Singapore for all Student Pass Holders.
In order to be conferred the course award, the student must achieve a pass for STEi Examination, and at least 75% of class attendance.
Cancellation of Student Pass (International Students)
Students without any valid reasons, who fail to meet the attendance requirements of classes for a continuous period of seven days or more; or the percentage of attendance for the course in any month is 90% or below; shall surrender the Student Pass to STEi within three working days of being officially notified. STEi shall duly process the student pass cancellation.
International Students whose attendance falls below 50% for any single month shall render immediate expulsion.
