After I have enrolled my classes for about 5 weeks, I cannot see some / all of my courses in my SPeCTRUM. However, I have registered the courses and it was visible to me previously.

These problems occur due to the method of payment of tuition fees as listed below :

  • Students pay some portion of their fees and did not make ​​a formal application for installment payments to the Treasury Department. Payment of fees is not sufficient when the expiration date has passed.
  • Students pay tuition fees beyond the period of registration.
  • Students do not pay at all while waiting for other financial means such as scholarship / Employee Provident Fund (EPF)
