SUSS alumni can continue their lifelong learning journey with a new scheme called Lifelong Learning Credit (L2C) whereby $500 per alumnus. The objective of this scheme is to encourage SUSS alumni to continue upgrading themselves to remain relevant and employable. The scheme is managed by CCPE.
The scheme started in July 2018. It does not replace ACE and ACE + but runs concurrently with them.
1. Who is eligible?
An alumnus is defined as a graduate who has successfully completed a degree programme, conferred by SUSS (formerly SIM University), at undergraduate or graduate level.
A fresh graduate may enjoy 3 schemes: ACE, ACE+ (from the cohort who completed in the July 2014 semester onwards) and L2C.
2. How does the scheme work?
An alumnus will be credited with an L2C of $500 as soon as he/she qualifies.
3. What courses can the L2C be used to pay for?
- An alumnus can use the L2C to pay for any course or workshop* organised by CCPE.
- Excluded are courses which have been taken in their programme.
- Courses can be at undergraduate or graduate levels.
- Prevailing rules regarding the award of certificates apply.
- It cannot be used to pay the registration, GST and miscellaneous fees.
