Additional Notes:

  1. The fees listed above exclude GST for Singapore Citizens and Singaporean Permanent Residents only. For International Students, the fees listed above include GST.

  2. Full-time undergraduate students who are eligible for tuition grants and GST subsidies from Ministry of Education (MOE) will pay subsidised fees. The amounts listed in the table above are inclusive of tuition grants. Students who are not eligible for the government Tuition Grant Scheme (TGS) will pay unsubsidised fees. Singapore Permanent Resident students and International students are required to sign the Tuition Deed with MOE if they choose to opt for TGS. Details will be provided after matriculation.

  3. Full-time students will pay an annual miscellaneous fee of S$164.75 (excluding GST). The miscellaneous fees consist of items such as CLASS copyright licensing fees, computer fees, student insurance, etc. For more information on the Student Insurance Scheme, please click here.

  4. National Servicemen will pay the relevant tuition fees (along with any increase in tuition fees) based on the year in which they were offered a place in SUSS for which they had accepted.

  5. The fee structure for SUSS Core Electives and Minor courses is the same as in the part-time programmes.

  6. Students who do not meet fee payment deadlines imposed by the University will incur penalty fees. If fees are not paid or are partially paid by the due date indicated in the bill, a late fee will be imposed. For students with outstanding payment, the University reserves the right to take further action as deemed necessary; including barring such students from course registrations in a subsequent semester, cancelling such students' current course registration, withholding results slips or transcripts, and withholding the confirmation of the award of the degree.

  7. If a third party is paying for the student's tuition fees, the student shall inform the third party to pay the tuition fee by the due date. In order to maintain students' privacy, we will communicate directly with our students only.

  8. SkillsFuture Credit aims to encourage individuals to take ownership of their skills development and lifelong learning. Starting January 2016, all Singapore Citizens (SC) aged 25 and above will receive an opening credit of S$500.

    The Singapore Government will provide periodic top-ups to SkillsFuture Credit; and as there is no expiry date, SC students may accumulate their SkillsFuture Credit and use it on top of existing government subsidies to pay for their tuition fees at SUSS.

Tuition Grant

The Tuition Grant Scheme was introduced by the Government to subsidise the high cost of tertiary education in Singapore.


The TGS is extended to Singapore Citizens (SC), Singapore Permanent Residents (PR) or International Students (IS) enrolled for full-time undergraduate programmes at SUSS. Students who are awarded the TGS will pay the subsidised tuition fees.

Tuition Grant Service Obligation

Only PR and IS are required to sign a Tuition Deed with the MOE and are required to work for a Singapore-based company for a period of 3 years upon graduation. There is no service obligation for SC students.

How to Apply

  1. All SC full-time students will be automatically granted the TGS.
  2. Full-time PR and IS students are required to complete an online application of the TGS, and undergo the Tuition Deed Signing Exercise at a later date. Further details will be provided later.
