Notice of Withdrawal

Notice of Withdrawal

Parents who wish to withdraw their child/children from Renaissance College are required to submit the “Student Withdrawal Notice” to officially inform the college of the withdrawal of their children. Notification of withdrawal by other means such as email, letter or verbal notice is no longer acceptable.

A hard copy or scanned copy of the completed and signed student withdrawal notice should be sent or emailed ([email protected]) to the Admissions Office of Renaissance College. The receipt of the notice will be acknowledged via email by the Admissions Office within two working days.

The Student Withdrawal Notice will be used by parents for notifying the college of:

  • A current student’s withdrawal;
  • The withdrawal of “prospective students” before the first day of school;
  • Current students not returning to school for the next academic year and
  • Any subsequent change of the last date of attendance.

As per the Terms and Conditions of Offer shown on the Acceptance Form when a student joins Renaissance College, there is a deposit paid equivalent to two months’ school fees. The first half of the deposit is credited against the first month’s fees, while the remaining half will be credited against the fees for the last month of enrolment, subject to the Student Withdrawal Notice being received at least two months prior to the student’s last date of attendance.

Withdrawal Procedure – Current Student

Parents are to complete and return the Student Withdrawal Notice to the Admissions Office of Renaissance College when withdrawing a current student.  A hard copy or scanned copy of the completed and signed student withdrawal notice should contain the following information:

  • Student’s full name and class;
  • Last date of attendance;
  • Student’s ESF number if known (optional);
  • Parent’s name and telephone number
  • Parent’s email address
  • Parent’s signature and
  • The date the parent signed the notice.
Withdrawal of “Prospective Student”

Should a parent subsequently decide not to take up the school place. i.e. to withdraw a prospective student before the student’s scheduled first day of school, the parent is required to complete and return the Student Withdrawal Notice to the Admissions Office of Renaissance College.

All the information as per the notice is to be included except that, instead of:

  • The student’s “class” – the year group should be written and
  • “Last date of attendance” – “prospective student” should be written.

As per the Terms and Conditions of Offer shown on the Acceptance Form, the admission deposit equivalent to two months’ school fees, is non-refundable and non-transferable and will be forfeited if the place is subsequently not taken up.

Students Not Returning to School for the Next Academic Year

For existing students who will not be returning to school after the summer break, parents may submit a Student Withdrawal Notice, at any time during the school year to the Admissions Office of the College. However, the Student Withdrawal Notice needs to be submitted before April 30, i.e. two months before the end of the school year, if the remaining half of the deposit made when accepting the offer of a place is to be credited against the fees for the last month of enrolment.

The deposit will be forfeited if the notice is submitted after April 30.

Subsequent Change of the Last Date of Attendance

Parents, who wish to change the last date of attendance after a notice has already been submitted, are required to submit a revised Student Withdrawal Notice to the Admissions Office of Renaissance College. All sections of the revised notice should be completed, and it must be stipulated in the “Remarks” of the revised notice that it supersedes the previous notice dated dd/mm/yy.

Any subsequent change of postponing the last date of attendance may be declined as the vacancy may have been allocated to another student.

The remaining half of the deposit made when accepting the offer of a place will be forfeited if the change of the last date of attendance is submitted less than two months prior to the last date of attendance, even though the first Student Withdrawal Notice was received at least two months prior to the student’s last date of attendance.

Cancellation of Student Withdrawal

In the event of a cancellation, parents should inform the Admissions Office of Renaissance College in writing, as early as possible, before the last date of attendance. However, please be advised that the cancellation may be declined as the vacancy may have been allocated to another student.
