You may collect your monthly allowance if you register before 15th (15th included) of that month, while those who register later than 15th are supposed to get half of the monthly allowance. From the next month on, during your study here, your living allowance will be deposited into your ICBC card you have applied for. You can withdraw money at any ATM or in the bank.
