REFUNDS POLICY - WITHDRAWAL AND CANCELLATIONS
a) Prior to Commencement
New students who are non-starters but have made a partial fee payment and had their VISA granted are not permitted to transfer to another Education Provider within the first six (6) months of their principal course of study. The School has no obligation to refund any fees or other charges that are related to course preparation under such circumstances.
b) Unsuccessful VISA application
New students who are non-starters but have made a partial fee payment and have their VISA application rejected are entitled to receive a refund. A Refund Request Form needs to be accurately completed and submitted to SAIS Finance Department.
The refund process will take 14 to 28 working days from the day that the School receives the correctly completed form. The refundable amount will be all monies paid except the application fee.
c) Withdrawal after commencement
Current or continuing students who wish to withdraw from the School must provide a minimum of six (6) months’ notice by means of written notification to the Head, Secondary Studies. Failure to provide such notice will result in two terms fees being invoiced. Please refer to the Deferring, Suspending or Cancelling Policy for more information.
In the case of exclusion or expulsion caused by misbehaviour of the student, no refund is applicable.
