Policies and procedures

Fees policy

Students who withdraw from units or defer their study by the census date are not financially liable for the units and will not incur a FEE Help debt for those units. Students who withdraw from units after the census date are financially liable for the full tuition fee of those units.

Fees for non-award subjects are due by the respective start dates. Full refunds are available up until start date. No refunds are available after the start date.

 Fees policy

Infection control policy

All on campus students are required to comply with the Infection Control precautions as outlined in the policy.

 Notifiable diseases and infection control policy

Academic progression policy

A student’s progression through to graduation will be dependent upon the student re-enrolling in the correct sequence of subjects each year and successful completion of all relevant subjects as listed in the course structure.

Students who are enrolled in an award program must meet a minimum part time study load of at least 50% of a full time credit point load for subjects attributed to a given semester of study.

In order to maintain appropriate student progression in all higher education courses, students will not be permitted to enrol in more than one (1) single higher education course at the College at any one time.

The Student Services team are able to provide advice and direction to students in relation to their academic progress.

 Academic progression policy

Admissions policy

Students entering Bachelor courses (or higher education subjects as general interest studies) are expected to have completed Year 12 or an equivalent qualification (e.g. Tertiary Preparation Certificate, Certificate IV, Diploma, or one year study at another higher education institution etc.)

Mature age students (21 years or over) who have not completed Year 12 and who have relevant study, work and/or life experience that indicates they would be able to manage the level of course work required, will be considered for admission on a case by case basis.

Applicants aged under 18 years at the time of application must turn 18 in their first enrolled semester of study or within 6 months of acceptance into the course.

All applicants must attend a final admissions interview upon submission of their enrolment paper work.

It is the responsibility of all students admitted to each of the Colleges’ programs to acquire the required textbooks, training tools and resources required to fully participate on campus and/or in online subjects.

 Admissions policy

Course & subject viability policy

The College has multiple intakes of a course throughout a given year. In some instances, it may be necessary to cancel an intake for a course for viability reasons prior to the next teaching period. The College will ensure that all students are provided with 2 weeks’ notice regarding the cancellation of any course or intake of that course.

Assessment of subject viability will be made based on the number of students enrolled. If the subject does not have enough enrolments it may be offered in an alternative mode or alternative intake. The College reserves the right to cancel an offering of any subject based on viability up to day 1 of a subject intake period and will notify students of such as soon as possible after the decision is made.

 Course & subject viability policy

Deferral, withdrawal and course variation policy

For those students who cannot actively engage in their studies in a particular subject or course, or wish not to continue their studies the College provides the options or deferrals and withdrawals.

Deferral is a formal process whereby a student’s studies and their enrolment are halted for up to 12 months. At the end of the deferral time if the student returns, they will re-enter the course at the same point at which they deferred. Students can request a deferral at any time throughout their studies, although it is highly preferable that students request deferral in the break prior to the first teaching period they wish to defer.

Withdrawal is the formal process whereby a student’s studies are halted, and their enrolment is removed from one of all subjects (and in that case their course). Students can request to withdraw from a subject or course at any time throughout their studies.

Variation is a formal process whereby a student will transfer from one course into another at the same College. A variation can only be requested by a student and variation is for the entire course. Students who wish to request course variation must hold a GPA of 4.0 or higher.

 Deferral, withdrawal and course variation policy

Reasonable adjustment policy

Reasonable adjustments may be made to accommodate a student with disability or special needs and reduce the impact of a disability or special need on a student’s academic success. Adjustments may include modifications to the learning environment, teaching method, or assessment conditions to increase the participation of a student without compromising the academic standard or the inherent course requirements.

Students with a disability or special need will discuss any potential need for reasonable adjustments with the Access and Equity Officer upon disclosure and registration with the Access and Equity Program. Provision of reasonable adjustment is dependent on complete and adequate documentation being provided by the student to substantiate a disability and demonstrate need for individual accommodations. The College is not obligated to make any adjustment or accommodation the may impose an unjustifiable hardship on the College.

 Reasonable adjustment policy

Working with children

Students enrolling in courses that have a clinic component must meet the following conditions of enrolment:

All students requiring a WWCC Check (or equivalent) are required to present it to, and have the WWCC Check or its equivalent validated by the College prior to undertaking any pre-clinical, work integrated learning or client-based clinical/practicum components of their qualifications.  All Higher Education students (normal enrolment) – where the students enter the course during the first semester, must supply their WWCC Check (or equivalent) prior to the commencement of their second teaching period (i.e. prior to their second semester). All Higher Education students (pathway enrolment) – where the student enters the course at a later point through a pathway (e.g moving from one course to another with advanced standing of at least one semester), must supply their WWCC Check or equivalent on entry to the course (i.e. prior to the start of the first semester).

The following requirements must be organised prior to commencing pre-clinical classes and Clinical practicum and be recorded in student records before students are able to undertake any pre-clinical theory classes and clinical practicum sessions. All current certification needs to be valid for the duration of clinic sessions.

  • First Aid Certificate
  • Relevant State Working with Children check, which may include a criminal history check in some states.

 Working with children checks policy

Non Award Policy

Non Award study allows students to enrol into higher education subjects for personal interest or professional development without committing to a full award course. This policy outlines provisions around non-award study, including entry and study requirements and restrictions, payment requirements and other processes around non-award study. Non-award study does not guarantee entry into any award course.

The maximum amount of non award study allowed by any one student in higher education subjects will be up to five (5) subjects.

Applicants must be aged 18 years or over by the start of the study period.

Applicants wishing to enrol in a postgraduate subject (i.e. subject from a postgraduate course) must show evidence of holding a Bachelor degree or equivalent (determined through the Educational Pathways Office).

Non-award applicants must complete the relevant application, provide all required documentation and complete an admissions interview prior to enrolment.

All applicants enrolling in non award study will be provided with a student number and student records kept on the central Student Management System. As such, students of non award study will be considered students of the College and must agree to abide by all College policies.
