REFUND POLICY OF INTERNATIONAL STUDENT FEES

PURPOSE:

This refunds policy outlines factors that will be considered when a request for a refund of international students fees is made to the school. This policy should be read in conjunction with the Education (Pastoral Care of International Students) Code of Practice 2016 and the Education Act 1989.

REQUESTS FOR A REFUND OF INTERNATIONAL STUDENT FEES

The school will consider requests for a refund of international student fees provided the request is made in writing to the school within twelve months after the final enrolment date of the student.

A request for a refund must set out the circumstances leading to the refund, name the person requesting the refund, name the person who paid the fees, provide a bank account to receive any eligible refund and provide any relevant supporting documentation.

 

REFUND OF TUITION FEES

REQUESTS FOR A REFUND FOR VOLUNTARY WITHDRAWAL:

If an international student voluntarily withdraws prior to the start date of their enrolment, a refund will be provided less an administration fee.

If an international student voluntarily withdraws after the start date of their enrolment, a minimum of ten weeks notice of withdrawal must be received by the school in writing. Refunds will be considered on a case by case basis, and in exceptional circumstances refunds will be given less an administration fee and the portion of course fees already used.

Where a student changes to domestic student status during the period of enrolment, they will be entitled to a refund of unused fees, less an administration fee.

Administration and homestay placement fees are non-refundable after the student has started their course.

The school, may in its sole discretion, request further information or evidence in support of a refund request.

CIRCUMSTANCES WHERE NO REFUND WILL BE MADE: 

No refund of international student tuition fees will be made where:

  • A student’s enrolment is brought to an end by the school, or

    • Where a student voluntarily requests to transfer to another signatory.

OTHER CIRCUMSTANCES:

OJC will offer a refund of tuition and homestay fees in the following circumstances:

  • if a student does not get their study visa approved by Immigration NZ

  • if OJC ceases to offer a suitable course of education for the student

  • if OJC ceases to be a signatory to the code of practice

 

REFUND OF OTHER FEES

REQUESTS FOR A REFUND OF HOMESTAY FEES

If for any reason, an international student withdraws after the start date of their enrolment, any unused homestay fees will be refunded, less the school’s notice-period fee of two weeks fees.

REQUESTS FOR A REFUND OF FEES UNUSED AT THE END OF ENROLMENT

Prepaid fees unused at the end of enrolment amounting to less than NZD$100 will be refunded to the student in cash, unless otherwise directed by the parents. Sums greater than NZD$100 will be refunded into a nominated bank account.

OUTSTANDING ACTIVITY FEES OR OTHER FEES

Any activity or other fees incurred by a student during enrolment and unpaid at the time of withdrawal, will be deducted from any eligible refund.
