Changes to enrolments
Learn about rules around changes to enrolments at Southern Queensland Institute of TAFE.
Transferring or changing courses
Students are able to transfer at program level during the first two weeks of study.
Fees paid to date will be transferred to the new course.
Any additional fee balances must be paid at the time of transfer. You are not permitted to cancel/modify your enrolment once assessment has been undertaken.
A processing fee will apply if a refund is payable. Where a refund is less than the administration charge, no refund will be given. Materials fees will not be refunded if already issued.
Transfers after the two week period will incur payment of all fees upon enrolment in the new subject. Existing fees paid will not be transferred.
Students are generally able to transfer between institutes in the same program of study. Enquiries should be to your campus Customer service centre.
Withdrawing from or drop a course
Note: Formal withdrawals should be actioned within the specified timeframe to avoid incurring an academic penalty.
Prior to the commencement of courses (five days for full fee courses, or two days for TAFE Short Courses, or one day prior to government-funded courses) students are able to withdraw fully from most courses by contacting the Customer service centre where the initial enrolment took place.
Refunds are generally not available after the course has commenced. The VETE Regulation on the Queensland legislation website explains the requirements in detail, in addition to the Student information guide issued at enrolment.
All approved refund applications will be processed subject to a $10.00 administration charge.
Where a course is cancelled by the Institute refunds are given in full. An application for refund form, (PDF, 42KB) must be completed to request a refund.
Completed forms can be returned to your nearest Customer service centre. Alternatively students may wish to contact their nearest Customer service centre directly.
