Scholarship students who are unable to register on time must obtain permission from the institution. Those who fail to register without the prior consent from the institution will be considered as voluntarily giving up the scholarship and the scholarship will be automatically terminated. Cost generated by students’ early arrivals should be covered by students themselves.
