Student Fee Policy

Policy Statement

Anatomy Academy sets student tuition fees for students eligible to study its Award Courses, Non-Award units and Professional Development (PD or CPD) units and courses.

Aims and Objectives
This policy relates to student tuition fees and identifies the requirements and arrangements for:

- Anatomy Academy to administer these fees
- Students to pay these fees
- Anatomy Academy to issue refunds

This policy applies to both commencing and continuing fee-paying students.

Principles
Student fees are calculated based on students’ enrolment in a program or unit or units of study (Bundles). Anatomy Academy is committed to assisting and guiding students in understanding their tuition fees and payment options. In addition to this policy, additional information will be made available and accessible where appropriate and as requested.

Tuition Fees: 
Unless otherwise stated, fees may include:

  • Access to online study materials for a period of 1 year
  • workshops as appropriate
  • web forums as appropriate
  • face-to-face teaching as appropriate (in a COVID safe manner)
  • tutorials (face-to-face or online)
  • assessments
  • reading or library resources


Due to COVID-19 concerns and restrictions we are not currently offering any face-to-face sessions, all sessions are being conducted via online channels. 

Procedures
Upon enrolment students will receive an order confirmation outlining their tuition fees paid. Acknowledgement of the Terms of Service and Student Fee Policy is a condition of enrolment. It is the student’s personal responsibility to check the information in the order confirmation and notify the Anatomy Academy team of any errors or omissions.

Fees are payable prior to the start any course, module or tutorial. There is no census date, however if you do not wish to continue with course, module, exam or tutorial you must contact Anatomy Academy within 5 days of your payment and enrolment.

Conditions
Anatomy Academy (Anatomy by Dissection Pty Ltd) reserves the right to vary arrangements, courses and units at any time without notice and at its discretion. Varied arrangements, courses and units will aim to keep disruption to students to a minimum. Students should contact Anatomy Academy or view our website for up-to-date information.

Anatomy Academy reviews tuition fees on an regular basis for all fee paying courses and may increase these fees over the period of enrolment.

Issue and Payment of Invoices
With content online we ask all students and candidates to enrol online and make an online payment at the time. It is remains the responsibility of the student to ensure that fees are paid.

In the case of third party invoicing, such as an employer paying a staff member’s tuition fees, the student is required to provide a guarantee of payment from the third party on a unit or course basis and liaise with the third party as required to ensure timely payment of fees.

Unpaid fee
Anatomy Academy will not grant extensions to students for the payment of fees (except in extenuating circumstances). In the event of failure to pay, students with outstanding fees who have received notification of the amount(s) owing may be liable to sanctions for non-payment of fees. Outstanding fees owing may be referred to a debt collection agency for recovery action. Students will be liable for any recovery costs incurred, including any late payment fees prescribed by the debt collection agency.

If a student enrols and has paid for the course by credit card, and a chargeback of the credit card used has been actioned, we will remove the student from the course, module or tutorial. We will also deam the student as breaching our student conduct policy.
