Supported in your creative journey
Higher education is a valuable step in your life, and it's one you can take with support and guidance along the way.
We are here to explore the payment options at JMC Academy with you, ensuring that you understand the options.
Access to FEE-HELP
JMC Academy is a registered Higher Education Private Provider. All of our higher education undergraduate + postgraduate programs are eligible for FEE-HELP.
What is FEE-HELP
The Australian Government student loan scheme
FEE-HELP is a loan for tuition fees from the Australian Government for eligible higher education students.
To be entitled to FEE-HELP you must be an Australian citizen or meet other secondary criteria. During the application process, your student admissions advisor will guide you through the fee options including FEE-HELP.

Fee Payment Options
Domestic students have the option of paying tuition fees prior to the commencement of each trimester or deferring payment through FEE-HELP.
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.
Fees will be refunded in full if the student withdrawals or defers prior to the Census date. No FEE-HELP will be incurred if a student withdrawals or defers prior to the Census date.
No refund of the relevant trimester/semester's fees will be applicable if withdrawal occurs after the Census date, unless special circumstances apply. A FEE-HELP debt will be incurred for all enrolled units of study for the trimester/semester if the withdrawal occurs after the Census date. Deferment of a course is not allowed after Census date.
In the event of JMC Academy cancelling a course, all fees paid in advance will be refunded within 14 days of cancellation.
