According to the Standard for RTOs 2015, Clause 7.3—Protecting pre-paid fees by students, Charter Australia will not charge in advance more than $1500, including enrolment fees, tuition fees, materials fees and any other fee component that is a mandatory payment for the course.
Course fees will be invoiced at a maximum of $1500 prior to commencement. Remaining fees will be invoiced by instalments. All fees must be fully paid before a certificate is issued. Financial assistance is available for domestic students. Please refer to Fees & Refunds for Domestic Students.
For overseas students, if 50 per cent of the course fee is less than $1500, then no more than 50 per cent of the course fee can be charged in advance, unless the student chooses to pay more.
For currently enrolled students, tuition fees will be invoiced to the student in advance, and the invoice must be fully paid by the due date which will be 2 weeks before term starts. Late payments (payments after the due date of the invoice) will attract a late payment fee of 5% of total invoice amount. Charter will not take any responsibility for the delay of the student's commencement of study and/or completion of assessments due to non or late payment of tuition fees.
Payment plans can be offered to the student if financial difficulty can be substantiated. A 2% surcharge will be applicable when an instalment plan is offered to the student.
If you are an Australian or New Zealand Citizen or hold an Australian Permanent Resident (PR) visa, you are classified as a Domestic Student. This is regardless of where you have studied and what qualifications you may have.
