The Fee Protection Scheme (FPS) is mandatory for EduTrust certified Private Education Institution. It serves to protect students’ fees in the event the school ceases operation due to insolvency, and/or regulatory closure. The FPS also protects students if the school fails to pay penalties or return fees to the students arising from the judgment made against it by the Singapore courts.
Under the prevailing FPS guidelines, schools are allowed to collect up to twelve months worth of course fees for each payment. Students may check their FPS status with their school or insurance provider.
LONPAC Insurance Bhd is the FPS insurer for Informatics Academy. For details of the FPS Insurance Policy, please refer to www.lonpac.com.
