It is important to achieve regular attendance and meet the attendance requirement stipulated by the authorities (eg. Immigration and Checkpoints Authority of Singapore) and TMC. Failure to meet the requirement will lead to the following:

  • Rejection of Student Pass on re-application/renewal for international students.
  • Expulsion where students do not make any improvement in their attendance rate and/or consistently absent from class despite warnings and counselling given in accordance with the school policy.

Attendance Requirement is as follows:

Module Attendance:

For all proprietary students, module attendance is required to be eligible for work to be assessed and sit for examination. The minimum module attendance is:

  • Full-time: 80% for Hawthorn and proprietary programs students and 80% for TMC College Students.
  • Part-time: 60% (minimum 75% is required for SSG-funded students)

Monthly Attendance:

All full-time international students must meet a monthly attendance of 90% required by ICA. Student pass shall be subjected to cancellation if the monthly attendance is not met continuously.

Full-time local students enrolled in courses that do not have module attendance requirement must meet a monthly attendance of 75%.
