Enrolling at NP

Student’s Pass Application (For Foreign Students only)

We warmly welcome you to Ngee Ann Polytechnic!

As the commencement of your studies in Ngee Ann Polytechnic are subject to the approval of a valid Student's Pass (STP) by the Immigration & Checkpoints Authority (ICA), it is important that you apply for and obtain a STP before the start of the school term.

Failure to do so will render you liable to appropriate action, including the withdrawal from the course offered.

Note to Dependent's Pass holders: Students on Dependent's Pass (DP) will still have to apply for a STP through SOLAR. Once the In-Principle Approval (IPA) letter has been issued by ICA, you may decide if you want to hold on to your Dependent's Pass or to cancel it. A Letter of Consent (LOC) issued by ICA is required if you want to study while on a valid Dependent's Pass. Please submit your LOC request to ICA at ica_stp1@ica.gov.sg.

To help you with your STP application, please refer to the step-by-step instructions below.

We wish you an enriching learning journey with Ngee Ann Polytechnic!
