Fee Protection Scheme

The Fee Protection Scheme (FPS) serves to protect students’ fees in the event of a PEI (Private Education Institution) being unable to continue operations due to insolvency and/or regulatory closure. It was first launched as the Student Protection Scheme (SPS) initiated by CaseTrust and it has been replaced with FPS (Fee Protection Scheme) under EduTrust. PEIs which are EduTrust-certified can collect a maximum of 12 months of fees from students, and these fees have to be protected.

In full compliance with the EduTrust guidelines set by CPE (Committee for Private Education), JE Educational College provides fee protection for the fees paid by our students in the form of an Insurance Protection Scheme. JE’s FPS is applicable to all students who are enrolled in any of our courses and pay FPS fee.
Please refer to the Committee for Private Education website www.cpe.gov.sg for more information.
