Domestic students have the option of paying tuition fees prior to the commencement of each trimester or deferring payment through FEE-HELP. For further information on FEE-HELP please click here. To be entitled to FEE-HELP you must be an Australian citizen or hold a permanent humanitarian visa.

Unless applying for FEE-HELP, tuition fees are due four (4) weeks prior to the commencement of the course. Payment for all fees is in Australian dollars and payment can be made by cash, credit card or cheque made payable to JMC Academy.

Due to recent changes in the legislation, if you are not progressing satisfactorily, you may lose access to FEE-HELP. The new FEE-HELP rules are distinct from JMC Academy's own "satisfactory" progression rules.
According to the amended legislation*:

As a Diploma student, you may lose access to FEE-HELP when you fail more than 50 per cent of all the units that make up your Diploma. We start measuring your FEE-HELP eligibility when you have attempted at least four (4) units in your Diploma, and continue to monitor until you have met all requirements for the Diploma. As soon as you fail more than 50 per cent of your Diploma units, your eligibility for FEE-HELP is in doubt.

As a Bachelor student, you may lose access to FEE-HELP when you fail more than 50 per cent of all the units that make up your Bachelor. We start measuring your FEE-HELP eligibility when you have attempted at least eight (8) units and continue to monitor until you have met all requirements for the Bachelor. As soon as you fail more than 50 per cent of your Bachelor units, your eligibility for FEE-HELP is in doubt. Please note, JMC is required to commence measuring progression of Bachelor students from Trimester 2, 2018 so your academic record prior to this point is not considered in this calculation.

If written notice of student withdrawal (cancellation of enrolment or deferment) is received 14 days before course commencement, course fees will be refunded in full, minus a withdrawal fee of 5% of the total course fees for that semester. If a FEE-HELP loan has been applied for, no FEE-HELP debt will be incurred. However, there will be a 5% withdrawal fee of the total course fees for that semester levied.

If written notice is received of student withdrawal or deferment after enrolment and prior to or on the Census date, students paying up-front fees to the Academy will be liable for a withdrawal fee of 10% of the total course fees for that semester and the balance of fees paid for units not commenced will be refunded. If a FEE-HELP loan has been applied for, no FEE-HELP debt will be incurred. However, there will be a 10% withdrawal fee of the total course fees for that semester levied.

Withdrawal or deferment after enrolment and after the Census date will result in no refund of the relevant semester's fees, unless special circumstances apply. A FEE-HELP debt will be incurred for all enrolled units of study and deferment is not permitted after the Census date in either semester.

In the event of JMC Academy cancelling a course, all fees paid in advance will be refunded within 14 days of cancellation.
