Refund Policy

When you withdraw from your course you will be asked if you are deferring or discontinuing your study.

Deferring your study means...

You can defer your course up to 12 months from the course date which you applied for. If you wish to register for a course within the 12 month period you need to email shortcourses.depm@monash.edu to be registered manually and have your course credit applied. Any additional fees outstanding from your credit must be paid prior to course commencement. Once you have confirmed that you wish to receive a course fee credit no refund (partial or otherwise) will be given under any circumstances for change of mind.

Discontinuing your study means...

You have decided to not pursue the study which you enrolled in, or you have not returned to study within 12 months of your initial deferral.

If a student withdraws from a course a refund of some fees may be possible.

Under banking regulations, if a student has made a payment with a credit card any refund must be credited to the original card. Monash University will refund to the original credit card if the initial payment was via that credit card within the previous 12 months, otherwise the refund will be processed by cheque.

All course cancellations must be in writing (notice of cancellation).

If the notice of cancellation is received (effective date):
More than 28 days* prior to the course commencement date: 100% of the course fee will be refunded less administration fee
Between 7 – 28 days* prior to the course commencement date: 50% of the course fee will be refunded less administration fee
Less than 7 days* prior to the course commencement date: 0% of the course fee will be refunded

* Refers to all days, including weekends and public holidays

A notice of withdrawal may be accepted as grounds for a partial refund of fees if the supporting documentary evidence can substantiate a claim due to:

  • illness or disability
  • death of a close family member (parent, sibling, spouse, child) or
  • political or civil event that prevents a student continuing a program

Applications for refund or transfer must be received in writing at least 7 days prior to course commencement. All refunds incur an administration charge of 10%.

No refunds can be made for cancellations received less than 7 days before the course commencement.

One transfer will be accepted without charge. All subsequent transfers will attract an administration charge of 10%.

Non Attendance (No Show)

If a student fails to attend a program, course fees will not be refunded or allocated to another course.
