Financial Aid is intended to help you finance your studies in Tunku Abdul Rahman University College when family and personal resources are not enough to meet your total education costs. Financial aid consists of scholarships and grants (aid that does not require repayment) and study loans (aid which must be repaid).
The University College provides a variety of scholarships, grants and study loans, some of which are administered by the Student Financial Aid Unit and others by external organizations. Some types of financial aid offered to students are merit-based, while others will take into consideration certain main criteria such as the applicant’s academic performance, family financial background and/or their participation in extra-curricular activities.
Once you have been awarded your financial aid, you must meet certain eligibility requirements in order to maintain it. For example, you must maintain satisfactory academic progress in your programme of study and avoid breaking University College rules and regulations. In addition, you must maintain the grade point average (GPA) or cumulative grade point average (CGPA) required by your financial aid programme.
If you receive financial aid that requires you to re-apply each award year or to submit your examination results by semester or yearly to the awarding institution or donor, be sure to meet their deadlines to ensure that you maintain your financial aid.
