PTPTN is an Education Financing Scheme that is establish for the purpose of providing education financing to students pursuing studies in local institutions of higher education in Malaysia. The scheme enables students the opportunity to pursue their study at a tertiary level.
IACT College diploma and degree programmes are registered with PTPTN. This enables IACT students to fully or partially finance their course fees and their cost of living for the duration of their study.
IACT College has various PTPTN application dates throughout the year. At the beginning of each semester we hold workshops to inform students on how to properly submit their online application to PTPTN. Once application is submitted, students will be notified when the loan is approved through email.
We provide continuous support to its students throughout the PTPTN application process.
The loan amount will be stated in the loan agreement attached to the email. Students can expect the email seven (7) working days after the online application deadline closes.
If an application is rejected, we will find out why and if needed, cancel the loan for a reapplication at the next available deadline. Subsequently, we would submit the semester results directly to PTPTN for the disbursement of the loan.
IACT College cannot guarantee whether an applicant successfully receives the PTPTN loan. However, here is the maximum funding that a student may get during their study here.
Diploma = A maximum of RM17,000 throughout the 2 ½ years of study at IACT College
Degree = A maximum of RM40,800 throughout the 3 years of study at IACT College
