Payment Process and Terms
Administration Fee Payment
Students are required to pay their administration fee ($971) only upon successful acceptance into their nominated ACICIS program. Upon acceptance students will be emailed an online payment link for the purposes of settling their application payment by credit or debit card (Visa or MasterCard).
Visa Fee Payment
Students will also be required to pay their visa fee (~$235) upon successful acceptance into their nominated ACICIS program.
Tuition Fee Payment
A second payment link pertaining to payment of the ACICIS tuition fee will be sent to those students responsible for paying their tuition fee directly to ACICIS. Tuition fees must be paid at least one month prior to the commencement of orientation.
If you are a Commonwealth supported Australian university student, you may be able to partially or fully defer payment of your ACICIS tuition fee through either HECS-HELP or OS-HELP. Your ability to defer payment of the ACICIS tuition fee in this manner is dependent on the arrangements in place at your home university for the management of these Commonwealth funding schemes. If in doubt, contact the ACICIS Secretariat for advice on who to speak to at your university about deferring payment of your ACICIS tuition fee via HECS-HELP or OS-HELP.
Withdrawal and Refunds
The administration and visa fees are non-refundable.
A student’s tuition fee is refundable up until the start of orientation (check dates here). After this date no refunds are possible.
If you are enrolled in a home university subject code for the purposes of undertaking this ACICIS program, arrangements for the withdrawal from this subject code – and any applicable financial and/or academic penalties – are determined by the regulations in force at your home university. You are advised to consult with your home university or faculty administration regarding applicable subject withdrawal policies, procedures, and penalties. If in doubt, contact the ACICIS Secretariat for advice concerning who to speak to at your university about this.
