a. Employees Provident Fund (EPF)
If you have savings with the EPF, you can withdraw from your Account II to pay your fees.
Please contact your local EPF office to get a free Borang KWSP 9H (AHL). You will also need an offer letter from WOU as well as a statement of fees payable.
Any excess EPF fund parked with WOU will not be confirmed as advance payment for tuition fee and no interest bearing.
Please contact your Regional Centre for help and advice.
b. Instalment scheme
In exceptional circumstances and with the approval of the Regional Centre Director / Manager, you may be allowed to pay tuition fees in two instalments i.e. 60% by the first tutorial (week 1) and 40% by the third tutorial (week 9). The Processing and Administrative fee as well as the Resource and Services fee, however, have to be paid in full.
