There are two aspects that PTPTN will consider before deciding on how much loan you will be eligible for:

1. Based on Parents Income

The amount of education financing is determined by the nett income of the guardian, after deducting the number of dependants.

  • Full amount – parent’s income is less than RM4,000 per month OR if student and/or guardian listed as BR1M recipients
  • Partial/Half amount (up to 75%) – parent’s income does not exceed RM8,000 per month AND student and/or guardian NOT listed as BR1M recipients
  • Tuition Fees only (up to 50%)  – parents’ income more than RM8,000 per month AND student and/or guardian NOT listed as BR1M recipients

2. Based on Course and Institution

Depending on where you choose to study, which field you are pursuing and the kind of scheduling you will be subjected to.
