Ex-manager of defunct School of Applied Studies fined S$16k
A former manager of the defunct School of Applied Studies (SAS) has been fined $16,000 for failing to keep proper student records and refund students' fees.
Jeremy Low, 32, was convicted of two charges on Thursday.
A third charge was taken into consideration.
This was for making a false statement to the Council for Private Education (CPE) in an application for the private education institution to get EduTrust certification.
The CPE started investigating SAS after it received an anonymous complaint in October 2010, and was informed by the SAS that it had decided to cease operations due to financial difficulties.
It discovered that SAS had collected course fees for a degree programme that had not been conducted.
SAS still hasn't complied with CPE's directions to refund the money.
