Fee Waiver for 2020 Graduates

In recognition of the disruption to Library services during the 2019/2020 academic year, the Library will offer a fee waiver to graduates conferred with an HKBU-awarded qualification in 2020. This fee waiver is for the package that provides one year of borrowing privileges with remote access to selected e-resources (regular annual fee HK$600).

To apply, eligible graduates should submit the completed application form together with a recent personal photograph to the Library via email at libcir@hkbu.edu.hk. The application deadline for this special annual fee waiver offer is 30 June 2021.


Holders of the following locally-awarded qualifications are eligible to apply for a Graduate Service Package: 

  • Hong Kong Baptist College Diploma / 4th year Honours Diploma
  • Hong Kong Baptist University Bachelor / Master / Doctoral Degree
  • Hong Kong Baptist University Postgraduate Certificate / Diploma
  • Hong Kong Baptist University Associate Degree / Higher Diploma

Note: Graduates of collaborative degree programmes offered jointly by the School of Continuing Education and an overseas university are not eligible to apply for the service packages below because these degrees are not awarded by HKBU.

The completed application form should be sent to the Circulation & Interlibrary Loan Section.

Submission of the completed application form and required supporting documents should be made within 3 months of receipt of the application by the Library. After that, any incomplete application will be discarded accordingly while the payment shall be forfeited to the University. To protect the personal data of applicants, the Library shall also dispose of the application record.
