INTRODUCTION

There are two easy ways to enrol in any of our courses:
Option 1 - Enrol through our online Shopping Cart
With each course description, you will find an 'Enrol Now' box.. This will display all of the payment plans and learning methods available for the course; just follow the prompts to enrol. To view courses, have a look at our Course List.

Option 2 - Enrol via Post, Fax or E-mail
To find out the current fees and how to enrol for any ACS Distance Education course do the following:

  1. Note the course code listed at the end of the course you are interested in (this will be either S1, S2, S3, S4, CT, AC, PA, DI or AD). For advice on course planning, please contact the school.

  2. Look up that particular course code in the Fees Schedule and decide which Payment Plan suits you best.

  3. To enrol via Post or Fax: Print off and fill in the enrolment form (enrolment form download) and send it to the school with your payment.

    Payment should either be in full, or as a part payment as set out in the Fee Schedule. Fees can be paid by Cheque, Money Order, Visa, Bankcard, Mastercard, American Express, or direct bank transfer (email the school for more details).

  4. No graduate tax applies to our courses as we are a privately run college.

 

 

CONDITIONS OF ENROLMENT

Upon enrolling in a course with any school, a student is entering a legal agreement under common law, in which they agree to abide by the conditions of enrolment (including meeting stated payments), in exchange for the service offered by the institution in the delivery of the course.

ACS Distance Education operates a refund policy which is fair and equitable.

  • Notification of withdrawal from a course must be received in writing within 14 days, in order to qualify for a full refund (less postage, handling and administration costs - minimum AUD$100, more for overseas students).
  • Course Duration: Short Courses (ie: 60 to 120 hrs duration) should be completed within 12 months of enrolment. Certificates, Advanced Certificates and Diplomas (ie. Over 500 hours duration), should normally be completed within 3-5 years of enrolment.
  • Additional fees may apply if a student requires an extended period to complete their course.
  • Deferments and Extensions: If there is a valid reason, you may apply to the office manager in writing for a deferment or extension. If you have demonstrated some commitment to study we grant 6-12 month extensions without question. If you demonstrate exceptional circumstances, we will normally grant 6 to 12 month deferments, as necessary. Recommencement fees may apply
  • Disclaimer: Every attempt is made to ensure all information from the school is accurate and that the student has attained the competencies taught in a course, at the point of their assessment. Beyond this point, the graduate is responsible to maintain their acquired competencies, and apply acquired knowledge and skills in a way which is appropriate to the unique characteristics of each application. This will release the school from any liability, action and claims of whatsoever nature in connection with, or arising from any such information, instruction or advice, given by any student or ex-student, whether directions given during the course are followed or not.
  • Courses, course notes and materials are not to be sold, loaned, copied, or used in any way outside of the pursuit of studying the course by the person who is enrolled in the course, unless permission is sought and granted in writing by the principal.
