Perbadaan Tabung Pendidikan Tinggi Nasional (PTPTN) is a government agency that provides study loans to Malaysian students pursuing tertiary education in Malaysia.
PTPTN only funds foundation programmes from these 5 institutions:
Note: PTPTN does not offer education funding to students who attend bridging/ foundation courses at Polytechnics
No, it doesn't.
Yes, you are allowed. However, PTPTN only provides financing during the course of study in Malaysia.
No, you are not allowed. The duration of financing is based on the semester of application. Should the application is made on the second semester, financing will be approved from the second semester onwards until completion of study.
The amount of education financing is determined by the net income of the guardian, after deducting the number of dependants.
To apply, eligible candidates must send these supporting documents to the PTPTN officer of your college/university. Photocopy must be A4-size, single-sided only.
For students who submit applications in the second semester, you need to send in additional documents such as:
Borrowers who have failed, discontinued, changed course or obtained other sponsors have to pay off the lump-sum amount of their loan. Installment method will not be offered for this kind of case.
12 months after your graduate date, you have to start paying off the instalments for the PTPTN loan. The repayment period will be set in accordance to your loan amount.
The interest rate is 1.00% per annum and is in effect following the 12 month grace period immediately after graduation. However, those who settle the loan in full prior to this 12 month grace period will not be charged of any administrative cost.
PTPTN waiver will only be eligible for First Class Honour students that come from B40 families.
PTPTN applies penalties to borrowers who fail to repay their loans on time. Delinquent borrowers will be given up to 3 reminders and afterwards PTPTN will blacklist these delinquent borrowers. The blacklisted people will be prohibited from going abroad, and not be permitted to renew passport.
