Deferment Policy and Procedure

Deferment Policy

Students are informed during orientation that NIC considers requests from students for course deferment on compassionate grounds.

There must be a good reason deemed acceptable to NIC, and the course must be on-going such that by the time the student returns at the end of the deferment period, he is still able to study all the required modules and successfully complete the requirements for graduation.  Acceptable reasons may include: 

  • Family members who are very sick or dying where the student’s presence at home is required
  • Traumatic family circumstances (e.g. death of a parent in an accident) where the family needs to be together to support each other
  • Sickness or poor health where the student needs to have an extended period of rest
  • Deferment in employment status (part-time student)

For deferment requests, the service target is to assess and reply to the student’s deferment request within 7 working days.

To request for a course deferment, students are required to write to NIC giving the reason for their request and providing relevant documents (if available).  

If the student is under 18 years of age, the Education Consultant will contact the parent / legal guardian and seek confirmation of the request for deferment.  The Education Consultant records the exchange and confirmation given, and requests the parent/legal guardian to give written confirmation via email where appropriate.

The MR will consider the deferment request and may consult with his Academic Manager or other relevant staff as appropriate.  

Any deferment granted would ordinarily be up to a maximum of one year.  If necessary and upon a fresh request, the deferment may be further extended. 

Student support / Admin Manager will give a written reply to the student (which may be via email) on whether the deferment request has been accepted, and if so, indicating the deferment period.  This reply will include an addendum to the existing contract which the student (or his parent/guardian if the student is below 18) will be requested to sign and return to NIC.  

Where a deferment is allowed, 

  • all supervisory processes are suspended. The student does not undertake any academic work and is considered to be ‘inactive’ 
  • no course fees will be charged during the deferment period. 
  • the length of time of the deferment is not included in the time period for completion of the program and any deadlines will be adjusted accordingly.

The policy of the NIC is not to allow course extensions where a student is given an extended period to complete a course that other students in the same course would not normally be given.

Continual Improvement

Newton International College reviews the Course Deferment Policy at least once a year for continual improvement.

Student Conduct and Attendance

Students are expected to put in reasonable time, attention and effort to engage in learning, and not to misbehave badly or to engage in wrongful behaviours which go contrary to the objectives for which they have been admitted into NIC.  Bad or wrongful behaviours may be subject to disciplinary proceedings.
Examples of bad or wrongful behaviour include but are not limited to the following:
    Possession / consumption of prohibited product or drugs.
    Copying or cheating in tests or assessments
    Physical or verbal abuse
    Abuse or misuse of furniture or equipment
    Fighting, hooliganism and extortion
    Absent without valid reason for more than 7 consecutive days
    Wilful defiance of NIC’s rules and regulations
    Serious infringements of the laws of Singapore
If a student is alleged to have misbehaved badly or engaged in wrongful behaviour, the MR conducts an investigation.
Based on the facts that are uncovered, the MR in consultation with the Management Team decides on the appropriate disciplinary measure that is educative and proportionate to the bad or wrongful behaviour.
While not limited to the list below, the disciplinary measure(s) may be one or more of the following
    Issuance of warning letters
    Confiscation of items
    Reduction of marks for a test or assessment
    A fine

There is no refund to the student for the course fees that are consumed during the period of suspension, or for the unutilised course fees in the case of expulsion.
The offender may also have to pay for damages or legal charges.
NIC requires a minimum 90% attendance each month from its international students on ICA’s Student Pass.
For other student (e.g. PR, Singaporean , Long term employment visa ) who do not require a student pass, the school requires a 75% attendance for the student to be eligible to get the certificate upon completion of the course.
This requirement is clearly communicated to the student during the orientation as well as through the Student handbook and website
The teacher marks student attendance on a daily basis.  The teacher also informs Academic Manager  about students with poor conduct or discipline.
The Admin  Manager  obtains the attendance list from the teaching staff and notes the absentees on that day.  He will call up the student to enquire as to the reason. The Admin  Manager  records the reasons cited by the student. He also records the instances when he was unable to reach the student. A student on medical leave is required to furnish the medical certificate to the Admin  Manager  the following day.
Should a student be absent for 2 days in a month without valid reason, the Admin  Manager  will send a warning letter.
The Admin  Manager will arrange to meet a student below 75% of attendance in a module without valid reason, the admin manager will conduct a telephone / direct counselling for student. If its repeated subsequently the student will be issued warning letter
A student who is absent from class for seven (07) consecutive days without valid reasons will be deemed to have withdrawn from the course.  If the school has been unable to contact the student, the Admin  Manager will make a police report and cancel the Student Pass.
Students who are unable to come for lessons on the following day are expected to apply for a leave of absence at least one day earlier, using NIC 034 Application for Leave of Absence Form.
At the end of each month, the Admin  Manager does a computation and informs ICA (Immigration and Checkpoints Authority of Singapore) of those students on Student Pass whose attendance for the month has dropped below 90%.
For part-time student attendance analysis completed and reported to the academic board for further action if necessary
