Singapore University of Social Sciences offers the following course fee concessions:

  • Applicants who are 60 years old and above will enjoy 20% course fee concession.
  • Alumni (Bachelor's, Master's or Doctoral programmes) of Singapore University of Social Sciences and Singapore Institute of Management will enjoy 20% course fee concession.

Students will enjoy only one of the two categories of concession. The above concessions are applicable to all programmes offered by the University unless specified otherwise.

They are not applicable to students under any scholarship or sponsorship schemes, SkillsFuture funded courses as well as courses offered with external institutions/organisations. The concessions are also not to be used concurrently with any other concessions.

Concession for First Two Master's Courses

To encourage further education and upgrading by alumni, Singapore University of Social Sciences Alumni (Bachelor's, Master's or Doctoral programmes ) will also enjoy an additional 30% course fee concession for the first two master's courses when they enrol for a Graduate Diploma and/or Master's programme with the University. The enhanced course fee concession scheme is subject to the following:

  • Alumni must not be receiving any company sponsorships or scholarships.
  • There will be no cap on the number of Master's programmes. However, alumni must fulfil all requirements for the conferment of the current Master's programme before being eligible for the enhanced course fee concession for the next Master's programme.
  • Alumni enrolled into the Professional Conversion Programme (PCP) e.g. the Master in Social Work programme, and who received funding will be eligible for the enhanced concession should they proceed to the Master's programme upon completion of the Graduate Diploma.
  • Alumni taking vendor and/or partner programmes or SkillsFuture funded courses will not be eligible for the enhanced course fee concession.
  • Alumni who transfer to another Master's programme during their candidature will not enjoy the enhanced course fee concession of 50% again for the Master's programme which they are transferring to.

Students will be sent the bill for course fee payment (and other additional fees, if applicable) at the start of each semester. You will usually be given about 1-2 weeks to pay the fees.

Students who do not meet fee payment deadlines imposed by the University will incur penalty fees. If fees are not paid, or are only 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.

For newly enrolled students, if written notice of withdrawal or deferment is given within the cooling off period#, a full refund of the fees paid less $117.70 (inclusive of GST) administrative charge will be given. No refund will be given for withdrawal or deferment thereafter.

Existing students who leave the University after the fee payment deadline for the semester, either through withdrawal on their own accord or termination of candidature by the University, will be liable to pay fees for the entire semester.

The cooling off period is defined as 7 working days after payment of the fees for the first semester of your admission to the University. To expedite the administrative process for refund, you are strongly encouraged to submit your notice of withdrawal or deferment to the University in person. ​​ ​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​
