     It is your responsibility to access this same system again two working days after you have submitted
     your photograph to check whether it has been approved for use. Resubmission of a new photograph

     uhc_health@nus.edu.sg.

5.   Tuition Grant
     – see Annex 2

     The Singapore Government provides subsidies for the cost of undergraduate degree programmes at
     NUS. This subsidy is known as the Tuition Grant. Information on the Tuition Grant is available from
     the Office of Financial Aid in the Office of Admissions (nus.edu.sg/oam/financialaid/faq-moe.html) as well as on
     the Ministry of Education (MOE) website (tgonline.moe.gov.sg/docs/TG-FAQ.pdf). More details on the Tuition
     Grant can be found in Annex 2. For enquiries, please write to financialaid@nus.edu.sg.

6.   Integrated Student Information System

     The Integrated Student Information System (myisis.nus.edu.sg) is a single entry point for students to
     manage a wide range of student transactions relating to academic, finance and personal information
     matters. To access the Integrated Student Information System, you will need your NUSNET ID and
     NUSNET password which are released to you upon completion of Registration (Part One). To help new
     students navigate within the Integrated Student Information System, the guides and other useful
     resources are published at the NUS Student Portal (myportal.nus.edu.sg/studentportal/eservices/all/myisis.html).

                                                                                                          Page 6 of 15

7.   NUS Email

     All students will have an email account at NUS that will be their official point of contact. All
     communications from the University to students will be via the official email account. As such, you are
     expected to check this account regularly. You are also expected to be aware of the latest
     notices/circulars that may be posted on myPortal@NUS (myportal.nus.edu.sg).

     Your NUSNET account and NUS email will be activated one day after you complete Registration (Part
     One). A system generated acknowledgement email will be sent to your NUS email account two days
     after completion of Registration (Part One). You may wish to access your NUS email via the NUS home
     page (nus.edu.sg) and click on “myEmail” located at the top right hand corner of the webpage in Figure
     6:

                                       Figure 6: Screenshot of NUS Home Page

     You will then be directed to the screen below (see Figure 7). The appropriate domain name for your
     use is “nusstu”. New students will have to change their passwords first before logging in to NUS Email
     and other NUS systems. Students may use the “Change NUSNET Password” option as indicated below.

     number, as well as attach a scanned image of your Student Card. Alternatively, you may reset it
     through short message service (SMS). A step-by-step guide to use the SMS service is accessible at the

Information for International Students

1.   International Undergraduate Students Orientation Briefing by Office of Student Affairs
     (OSA)

     This will be held on:

                   Date  : 27 July 2015, Monday
                   Time  : 10.00am
                   Venue : Lecture Theatre 27 (Faculty of Science)

     Students are also encouraged to read about upcoming events on OSA’s webpage (nus.edu.sg/osa/iss).

2.   Alternative Registration Date

     All International Students are to register latest by 28 July 2015. There is no alternative registration
     date and Registrar’s Office would only provide special arrangement for those who are given late
     offers.

3.   Immigration & Checkpoints Authority (ICA) – Student’s Pass

     All International Students will require a Student’s Pass (see Figure 8) issued by the Immigration &
     Checkpoints Authority (ICA) (ica.gov.sg) during your candidature in NUS. You should be familiar with
     ICA’s requirements regarding Student’s Pass matters by checking ICA’s web-published information on
     Student's Passes for University students (ica.gov.sg/page.aspx?pageid=325&secid=182). It is important for you to
     take action promptly when you receive email notification to access the SOLAR system to verify your
     details, as not doing so will delay your In-Principle Approval (IPA) letter application and subsequent
     NUS registration procedures.

                                         Figure 8: Specimen of Student’s Pass

     If the application is approved, ICA shall grant you an IPA letter. If you are coming from a visa-required
     country, a copy of the IPA letter will be sent to you via email. You can use this IPA letter as a single-entry
     visa to enter Singapore. If you are coming from a non-visa required country, the stamped IPA letter will
     be given to you after you have completed your registration procedures at NUS.

     If you are not issued with an IPA letter, you would not be able to apply for a Student’s Pass and your
     admission offer will be withdrawn.

     You are advised to read the IPA letter carefully and prepare the required documents/items ready for
     submission to ICA to convert your social visit pass to a Student’s Pass (ica.gov.sg/page.aspx?pageid=325&secid=
     182#formalities).

   In addition, you must also print and bring the correct Terms and Conditions of Student’s Pass Form:

   (a) For students applying at NUS
       Please use the Offsite Exercise version (share.nus.edu.sg/registrar/info/info/STP-Terms-and-Conditions-for-OSE.pdf).

   (b) For students applying at ICA
       If you are unable to complete your Student’s Pass formalities on the scheduled dates, you must
       make an e-appointment (eappointment.ica.gov.sg/ibook/index.do) and report in person at ICA Office, 4th
       Storey, ICA Building (located next to Lavender MRT Station) to complete the Student’s Pass
       application formalities. If you are leaving Singapore before the collection dates of 18 – 19 Aug
       2015, you are advised to complete your Student’s Pass formalities by this procedure as well.

        Please use this version for the Terms and Conditions of Student’s Pass Form (ica.gov.sg/data/resources/
        docs/Visitor%20Services/Terms_and_Conditions_STP.pdf ). You are required to submit this form along with the
        other necessary documents in person at ICA.

   Terms and Conditions of Student’s Pass Form. If you do not have a Singapore Address at the point of
   submission to ICA, please indicate your Department/School address as well as your email address (to be
   indicated under the Contact No. field). You may email ICA at ica_stp1@ica.gov.sg subsequently if you
   wish to update your new Singapore address.

   Please follow all instructions issued in ICA’s communications to you, as well as be familiar with ICA’s
   requirements regarding Student’s Pass matters and relevant e-services and forms managed by ICA
   (ica.gov.sg/e_services.aspx?pageid=313).

   (nus.edu.sg/osa/ssc/services/students-pass) provided by the Student Service Centre (SSC) as part of their wide-
   ranging suite of services for NUS students.

   3.2. Additional Medical Examination for Student’s Pass Application

   The issuance of the Student’s Pass is subject to the outcome of a medical examination. Students who
   fail to fulfil the medical requirements will not be issued with a Student’s Pass.

   The medical examination may be done in your home country if you have never resided in Singapore on
   any long term immigration passes previously. However, it must be done using ICA’s prescribed medical
   report form (ica.gov.sg/data/resources/docs/Visitor%20Services/MedicalReport.pdf), and submitted with the relevant
   laboratory reports for the HIV test and x-ray. An official translation of the laboratory reports is
   required if it is not in the English language. At the time of submission, the laboratory reports must not
   be more than three months from the date of issue.

   You may also opt to have this medical examination (together with the Pre-Admission Medical
   Examination) done at the University Health Centre (UHC) (nus.edu.sg/uhc/healthservice). If you choose to do
   this, you need to note that the results of the various laboratory tests will only be ready for collection
   after five working days. It will be your responsibility to plan the timing of your medical examination
   such as to have all necessary documents in good time for your appointment with ICA for the Enrolment
   session.

                                                                                                               Page 9 of 15

   If you are residing in Singapore on any other long term immigration passes currently, you are required
   to undergo the medical examination in Singapore, if the medical examination is done more than two
   years ago.
