Students eligible for "FULL" or "HALF" level of assistance will be issued with ECs and may apply for “FULL” or “HALF” fee reimbursement (FR). They should complete and return the ECs to the ACPs within one week from the commencement date of school or within two weeks from the date of issue of the EC (whichever is later) in accordance with the Guidance Notes issued with the EC for ”FULL” or “HALF” level of FR applications.
  • The EC for the 2021/22 school year will apply to subjects taken in the 2021/22 school year only. At the end of each school term, the ACPs will inform the SFO which students have attained the eligibility criteria. Students who have submitted their ECs with "FULL" or "HALF" eligibility level to the ACPs within the timeframe will receive FR through direct credit to their applicants’ bank accounts.
