Deferment Policy


Students are not allowed to defer their studies once the term has commenced. Students who wish to defer their studies have to complete the Application for Deferment and Resume of Studies form, obtainable from RCHE Student Services Portal, at least 30 days before commencement of the New Term. The decision to grant the student deferment will be considered on a case-by-case basis and at the discretion of the College.

Students are allowed to defer their studies up to a maximum period of 12 months. Students will be deemed to have withdrawn from the programme should they fail to resume studies within 12 months.

To resume studies with the College, students have to submit the Application for Deferment and Resume of Studies form to the College 30 days before commencement of the New Term. Students who wish to re-enrol after deferment are subject to the following requirements:

• The module(s) being offered in the term;

• Availability of vacancy; and

• Whether outstanding term/retake fees due are paid in full.

On resuming their studies, they will have to follow the curriculum in effect. This could mean a change in the number and/or content of the module(s) offered.

An administration fee of S$218 is payable at the point of application.

No deferment is allowed for the Raffles English Language Programmeand Foundation Studies Programme.
