Persons who:

  • are Hong Kong residents and have the right of abode or the right to land or to remain in Hong Kong without restriction.  Holders of one-way permits from Mainland China may also apply; 
  • have enrolled in and paid the tuition fee for a reimbursable course before the course commences; and 
  • are aged from 18 to 65 at the time of application and on seeking reimbursement of their fees. 
Application Procedures
If you have not submitted any application for CEF before, you are required to open an account with CEF before the commencement of the course, by submitting a CEF Application Form (SFO 192) (with certification obtained from the College) which can be downloaded from the CEF website.  Late applications will NOT be processed.
How to Claim Reimbursement
Each successful applicant will be provided with a Reimbursement Claim Form (RCF) (SFO193) from the OCEF.  The form should be submitted together with the letter of certification issued by the College after successful completion of the reimbursable course(s) to the OCEF and, in any event, within four years from the date the application was approved.
Successful completion means you have attained the overall mark of 50% of assessment(s) as prescribed for the course and have attended no less than 70% of the contactable hours of the course.  
In respect of any courses for which the fees are to be reimbursed, upon seeking reimbursement of the fees, the applicant must not have obtained any other public funds or publicly-funded financial assistance for the same course, such as grants or loans from the Financial Assistance Scheme for Post-secondary Students administered by the Student Finance Office (SFO).
