FEE PROTECTION SCHEME (FPS)
The FPS serves to protect the students' fees in the event that the School is unable to continue operations due to insolvency, and/or regulatory closure. The FPS also protects the student if the School fails to pay penalties or refund fees to the student arising from judgments made against it by the Singapore courts.
Zhicheng Private School declares that we have in place a Fee Protection Scheme (FPS) stipulated by the Committee for Private Education (CPE)*.
We have adopted the FPS Insurance Scheme with Liberty Insurance for the convenience of students.
