Leave of Absence
If a student wishes to take a leave of absence from his course after enrolment and within the first four weeks of course commencement, UiTM will transfer any fees paid to the next semester. If the student subsequently withdraws, the Refund Policy applies from the date UiTM received advice regarding the leave of absence. If the student applies for leave of absence from the fifth week of the semester, his place will be held, but all fees paid for that semester will be forfeited.

Medical Insurance
As of July 2009 intake, all international students are required to have a medical insurance policy to cover their medical costs while studying in Malaysia. International students may opt to subscribe the medical insurance policy from an appointed agent by the university upon registration. Without a medical insurance policy, the student visa will not be issued by the Immigration Department of Malaysia.

Other Conditions
The student is expected to attend all classes and undertake all tests and examinations within a course and abide by all rules and regulations of the university that are in force at any time.

NOTE: AS A STANDARD PROCEDURE, IF A STUDENT DECIDES TO LEAVE FEC DUE TO UNAVOIDABLE REASONS WITHIN THE FIRST TWO WEEKS, 75% OF THE TOTAL FEE WILL BE REIMBURSED TO THE STUDENT AT THE END OF THE 8TH WEEK. HOWEVER, THERE WILL BE NO REIMBURSEMENT IF A STUDENT DECIDES TO LEAVE AFTER THE FIRST TWO WEEKS. THE SAME PRINCIPLE APPLIES TO SPONSORED STUDENTS WHEREBY PAYMENT WILL BE CLAIMED FROM THE SPONSORED BODY (25%) IF A STUDENT DECIDES TO LEAVE WITHIN THE FIRST TWO WEEKS AND THE TOTAL FEE WILL BE CLAIMED FROM THE SPONSORED BODY IF THE STUDENT DECIDES TO LEAVE AFTER THE FIRST TWO WEEKS. THIS IS TO ENSURE THAT THE PROGRAM RUNS SMOOTHLY AND EFFICIENTLY THROUGHOUT
