Tuition Assurance Exemption

The Sydney College of Divinity provides tuition assurance to support students enrolled in a course of study in the event that, due to unforeseen circumstances, we are no longer able to offer the concerned course of study.

In such an event Sydney College of Divinity students, if they so desire, could complete a similar course of study with the Australian College of Theology (ACT). Students who have paid up-front also have the option of reimbursement. For students who are Australian citizens or permanent residents in Australia paying fees themselves, financial provision is made to allow immediate refunds. For students using FEE-HELP, the Government has introduced new arrangements from 1 January 2018 that include exempting particular higher education providers from Tuition Assurance, subject to meeting certain conditions. Learn more about our Statement of Tuition Assurance Exemption.

Students studying on an overseas student visa are covered by the Tuition Protection Service (TPS), an initiative of the Australian Government to assist international students whose education providers are unable to fully deliver their course of study. Sydney College of Divinity makes a compulsory payment to the Government to protect the interests of our international students.
