Tuition Assurance protects the interest of current and intending students of ACPE courses that lead to an accredited award in that it ensures students are given a suitable alternative course or have their fees refunded if the College cannot provide the course for which the student has paid.
As of 1st of January, 2021 domestic up-front fee-paying students studying at ACPE are eligible for tuition protection assistance if the course has not commenced, or ceases after commencement but before completion, and the student has not previously withdrawn. Therefore, direct fee-paying students will no longer be invoiced for the tuition fees of units in which they have remained enrolled on census date at the end of the study period but in the week following census date. Tuition fees will therefore become due from census date until the end of the study period. Please see ACPE Limited’s Statement of Tuition Assurance here
