Policy for Fees and Payments
All fees and charges are stated in and are to be paid in Australian dollars.
Tuition fees are payable per semester, in advance.
Students must review the Student Agreement or International Student Agreement for visa holders, before the commencement of the course.
If, after the census date of the semester or course, a student’s tuition fees are not paid, or the student has not made alternate payment arrangements, then the student will automatically receive a Not Yet Competent (NYC) grade for the unpaid course, module or VET unit of study and will be removed from class. In the case of international students, a letter will be sent to notify that the college will be cancelling the student’s enrolment, in which they will have 20 working days to access the complaints and appeals process. Students who are unable to pay tuition fees may choose to contact the campus director and withdraw from their course, module or VET unit of study before the census date to avoid this Not Yet Competent (NYC) grade.
Students with outstanding fees will not be issued any academic transcripts and will not be permitted to graduate. Students with outstanding fees will also be refused the following services:
access to assessment results
access to buildings and computer labs
access to e-learning course material
Failure to pay fees may result in the student’s enrollment being cancelled. If a student’s enrollment was cancelled due to outstanding fees, they may request to be re-enrolled; with a late enrollment fee possibly applied. A student whose enrollment was cancelled will carry the debt and will not be permitted to enroll until the outstanding amount has been paid in full or an agreement has been made between the student and the campus director.
Continuing students who fail to enroll by the enrollment date will be charged a late enrollment fee. This fee must be paid before enrollment will be processed. The enrollment date will be published on the college website.
Withdrawal shall ordinarily:
be permitted from the start of week 1 to the census date without academic penalty: that is, nothing appears on the transcript;
attract the academic penalty of a Not Yet Competent (“NYC”) grade if it occurs after the census date;
be permitted at any time with the approval of the VET Committee.
Withdrawals of International Students shall be permitted at any time with the approval of the VET Committee on compassionate grounds.
