VET Refunds

Eligibility for a refund is assessed once the student has officially completed  a Withdrawal Form. All withdrawal must be discussed with the program area prior to submission. Withdrawal forms are available from the School and must be authorised by the student as well as a School representative. Advice of withdrawal made by telephone will not be accepted.

If a student has been deemed eligible for a refund Student finance will contact the student to determine the correct course of action. Students will be required to complete a refund application form which will be provided to them.

Students should read the VET Student Refund Procedure for more information.
