  • Fees are subject to revision.
  • Fees are charged based on citizenship at term commencement. If you have officially informed ITE of your citizenship change to SC or SPR before term commencement, you will have your fees adjusted to the SC or SPR rate for that term. However, if you have informed ITE officially of your citizenship change to SC or SPR after term commencement, your fees will be adjusted to the SC or SPR rate only with effect from the next term.
  • If you are ineligible for SkillsFuture Singapore (SSG) or Workforce Singapore (WSG) funding, you will need to pay full Course Fee.
  • If your PSEA payment was unsuccessful (e.g. due to insufficient funds at the point of deduction by MOE or the PSEA balance had been transferred to the CPF account), you will have to pay the outstanding fees via other modes of payment.

1. Post Secondary Education Account (PSEA)

Singapore Citizens who are using their own PSEA account to make fee payment for CET Skills courses can submit the online PSEA Standing Order (SO) form. You will need to login via Singpass to submit the online PSEA SO form. If you already have a Standing Order for PSEA for CET Skills courses from 2020, you do not need to submit a fresh application.

If you are below 21 years old, you will need your parent to login via his/her Singpass to submit the online PSEA SO form on your behalf.

You can check your PSEA balance by calling the MOE Post-Secondary Education (PSE) Scheme Customer Service Tel: 6260 0777. Please ensure that there are enough funds in your account if you are paying your fees using PSEA.

2. Online Payment

Upon successful online course application, you have to make online payment within 3 days of the course application date. If you do not make full payment by the stipulated deadline, you are deemed to have withdrawn from the module that you have registered for. Your training place will then be offered to other applicants.

If you have made online payment, your payment record will be updated to your Financial Account instantly.

3. SkillsFuture Credit

Part-time Higher NitecNitec and ISC courses are SkillsFuture Credit approved courses. You can use your SkillsFuture Credit and SkillsFuture Credit Top-Up to pay for Part-time course fees (specifically tuition and examination fees). You may visit https://www.skillsfuture.gov.sg/credit for more details on SkillsFuture Credit.

For SkillsFuture Credit payments, please note:

  • Upon successful enrolment of a module, please go to ‘Account Inquiry’ under ‘Student Center’ in the Student Portal, and click on the ‘Request for Payment Advice’ button.  A payment advice will be sent to your email address.
  • Go to www.myskillsfuture.gov.sg, and navigate to ‘Digital Services’ > ‘Individuals’ > ‘Claim SkillsFuture Credits’ to prompt login into the portal.
  • Please submit your SFC claim within 3 days after module enrolment.
  • If your claim is not received by the required timeline^ by ITE, you are deemed to have withdrawn from the enrolled module.
  • If the available credit in your SkillsFuture Credit (SFC) account is insufficient to cover the Course and Examination Fees, you will need to pay the balance via the various payment modes before the required timeline by ITE to remain in the enrolled module.
  • SkillsFuture claims can only be paid out to Training Providers. This means that if you paid your full course fees upfront, you will not be able to use your SkillsFuture Credit.

^ The deadline for the submission of the SkillsFuture Credit claim is indicated on the Payment Advice available over the web upon successful course application. If your SkillsFuture Credit claim is not approved in the SkillsFuture Credit portal (https://www.skillsfuture.gov.sg/credit) before the course start date, you will have to pay the full fees by other available payment modes more than two weeks before the course start date. If full fees are not paid by then, you will be withdrawn from the course.

4. AXS Payment

You can make an e-payment for your CET course fees via an AXS Station, AXS e-Station or AXS m-Station.  AXS payment is not applicable for companies paying the fees of their sponsored students.  Students who wish to check or make payment on outstanding balances at an AXS Station can only do so the next day after 10am following their enrolment into a course.  You will need to retain the receipt as proof of payment.  For assistance, you may call AXS hotline on 65602727 (8am to 10pm daily).

Withdrawal from module(s) and refund

Withdrawal from the modules is not encouraged. Students who wish to withdraw from the module(s) they have registered in, may submit their application for withdrawal over the counter at any Customer & Visitor Centre or to the College they have enrolled in.

The amount of fees refundable is based on the date of application for refund as follows:

If application for refund is received less than 2 weeks before the start of course50% refund of fees
If application for refund is received after start of courseNo refund

Refund is not an automatic process. Applicant must apply for refund before ITE will process the request. All requests for refund are not guaranteed and are subject to approval by ITE.

For students who had used SkillsFuture Credit for partial/whole payment of CET course fees earlier, please note that SkillsFuture Credit is not recognised for fee payment/refund purpose arising from course withdrawal on or before course start date. Depending on the course withdrawal date, and the proportion of fees paid using SkillsFuture Credit, the applicant may have to pay fees arising from the course withdrawal.
