ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

What you need to know

One semester of study comprises two terms or 26 weeks of classroom and placement study sessions. 

For Australian-Based Students

For onshore students, fees are payable in two instalments.

Payment will be due as follows:

  • First payment – non-refundable enrolment fee of $200* and 50% of the tuition fees and materials. This payment is due seven days after the written agreement and letter of offer has been received. Students are also required to pay a non-refundable fee of $300* for materials.
  • Second payment of 50% for the tuition fees and materials must be paid by Week 10. 

For International Students

  • Once a written agreement and letter of offer has been received, fees are payable one semester in advance.
  • Failure to make a payment to AAON by the required date may result in cancellation of enrolment and cancellation of your International Student Visa.
  • A non-refundable $200 application fee* and a non-refundable fee of $300 fee for materials* also apply.

Other Fees

  • Recognition of Prior Learning [RPL] – $200 per unit.
  • Reissuing of testamurs (a certificate proving an examination has been passed) and statements of results.
  • $50 for the replacement textbooks. This cost will only apply if you damage or lose the texts provided as part of the course, or require additional copies.
