If student can provide right documents later then SIC will start processing again but money will not be refunded and process will uncertain.

In September intake 2018, he applied in CUMT through SIC ! This is a serious offense.) then he needs to pay a penalty fee of 500$ for further procedure through SIC and previous application will be rejected !

SIC only gives information of running year scholarship policy. University authority is the only authorized institution who can deal with scholarship policy. So, if any university changes their scholarship policy then students can’t claim anything to SIC. In general, good University doesn’t change rules but students need to fulfill scholarship coverage conditions as per university guideline. SIC will inform students earlier while start processing if any policy for scholarship will be changed by university.
