KUALA LUMPUR: Associations representing private colleges support the 10-day quarantine being imposed on foreign students arriving from SARS-affected countries but are unhappy that the institutions have to bear all expenses incurred. 

Both the Malaysian Association of Private Colleges and Universities (Mapcu) and National Association of Private Higher Educational Institutions (Napei) said they would like to discuss the matter with the National Committee on SARS, as they had not been consulted earlier.
