THE STUDENT CONTRIBUTION/TUITION FEE REPAYMENT OPTION
CHC meets the Student Contribution/Tuition Fee Repayment Option requirement through a Repayment Deed of Guarantee with Christian Outreach Centre. If a student chooses the Student Contribution/Tuition Fee Repayment Option, Christian Outreach Centre undertakes to pay the student the total of any up-front payments already paid by the student for any units the student has enrolled in and commenced but not completed. Students selecting this option will also have any HECS-HELP or FEE-HELP balances re-credited for units which they have commenced but have not completed.
Where there is no suitable replacement course for a student, CHC will refund any tuition fees paid up front, or re-credit the student’s FEE-HELP or HECS-HELP balance for the affected parts of the original course.
AUSTRALIAN GOVERNMENT TUITION ASSURANCE SERVICE
CHC is a financial member of the Australian Government Tuition Protection Service (TPS). Should neither of the above options be acceptable to a student or CHC does not provide assistance, the TPS will contact the student directly. The TPS will offer the option to either receive a refund of tuition fees for affected parts of the course, or assistance to move to a similar replacement course.
This service is available to FEE-HELP or HECS-HELP (HELP) students and international students, in the event that their education provider defaults.
Domestic up-front fee-paying students studying higher education with private education providers are eligible for tuition protection assistance if the course has not commenced, or ceases after commencement but before completion, and the student has not previously withdrawn.
Each affected student will have a period of six (6) months in which to accept the replacement course offer. The Department may extend that period in circumstances that justify an extension.
