Fee Refunds Policy
In this section you will find information on our refunds policy for part-time courses.
For a class to commence it is necessary for the Institute to enrol a minimum number of students. If this number is not reached the Institute reserves the right to cancel or discontinue the course. Students will be notified and a full fee refund will be processed automatically. If you pay by debit or credit card we will refund you within 1 week. If you pay by cheque or cash refunds can take up to 3-4 weeks to process.
When the Institute runs a part-time course a refund of fees will only be given under the following circumstances:
- A refund will be given if a student attends for only the first week of a five week course.
- A refund will be given if a student attends for only the first two weeks of a six to ten week course.
- A refund will be given if a student attends for only the first three weeks of a course lasting more than eleven weeks.
In all these cases a 20% administration charge will apply. All refund requests must be applied for in writing to the Lifelong Learning Centre.
After these time periods no refunds are available under any circumstances.
All refund requests must be applied for in writing to the Lifelong Learning Centre within the time periods referred to above.
If leaving a course adequate notification should be given to the Lifelong Learning Centre.
