Reading Notices and Circulars Issued by the University
All students will have an email account at NUS that will be their official point of contact. Most communications from the University to students will be via the official email account. As such, students are expected to check this account regularly. Students are also expected to be aware of the contents of the latest notices/circulars that may be posted on myPortal@NUS.
