All Categories > Fees > Guideline on Refund
Normally, no refunds will be made after the fourth week of teaching. The grounds for refunds are set out below:


Full refunds

Withdrawal of an offer of a place by the university or the university’s inability to provide the course. This would include the situation where a student could not meet a condition required by the university in its letter of offer. (If the offer is withdrawn on the basis of the application/student supplying incorrect or incomplete information, the university reserves the right to retain 10 percent of the first semester’s tuition fee).

Exclusion by the university, for failure to meet degree progression rules where fees were paid in advance of notification of exclusion.

Refusal by the Malaysian Government authorities to grant a student visa.

Illness or disability preventing the student from taking up the course.

Death of a close family member (parent, sibling, spouse or child).

Other special or extenuating personal circumstances preventing a student from taking up a course may be accepted for a full or partial refund at the discretion of the Finance Manager of Monash University Malaysia, prior to the commencement of the course.

Documentary evidence must be provided in support of an application for a refund under any of the above provision.


Partial refunds

  • Where a student, having paid his or her tuition fee for one semester in advance, gives notice in writing to Monash University Malaysia, at least four weeks prior to the commencement of teaching in that semester (or four weeks prior to the specified date for the commencement of a research program), of an inability to undertake the course, tuition fee paid in respect of the semester is refundable less an administrative fee of 10 percent. For Summer semester, the notice must be given by student at least one week prior to the commencement of teaching in Summer semester.
  • Where a student gives notice in writing less than four weeks prior to the commencement of teaching in that semester or less than one week notice in a Summer semester of an inability to undertake the course, tuition fee paid for the semester is refundable less 20 percent (including an administrative fee of 10 percent).
  • A student who withdraws from a course within the first four teaching weeks (or four weeks of a research program) or first week of Summer semester, shall be eligible for a refund of 50 percent (including an administrative fee of 10 percent), provided all fees have been paid: otherwise 50 percent of tuition fee is due to the university.
  • The policy of partial refunds applies equally to commencing students and continuing students.

Application for a full or partial refund must be made in writing to the Finance Manager of Monash University Malaysia setting out the reasons for the request, and accompanied by supporting documentation as appropriate. Where fees are paid by a party on behalf of the student, the University reserves the right to notify the party concerned. If you discontinue a single semester unit in the first four weeks of the semester, there is no financial penalty. If you discontinue a single semester unit from the commencement of the fifth week, you will be charged general fees for the unit and full unit fees.


General Fees

All general fees are non-refundable unless otherwise stated.


Please note that refunds will not be immediate. However, they will be processed in a timely manner, but are subject to the University authorisation process and bank processing timings.
