2024 Fee Schedule
The Fee Schedule is a guide to course and unit fees. It outlines each ACAP course on offer, including information on units, student load and credit points. It also includes fee information for higher education courses. Courses may not be available at all campuses, or in all trimesters.
For full information about courses, please refer to course pages.
Tuition Fees and Payments
ACAP offers a range of tuition fee payment options such as FEE-HELP, VET Student Loan (VSL) and Full Upfront Payments.
You can select a payment option during the admission process, and if your circumstances change, you can request to change this method during your studies. Please note that the fees listed are indicative total course fees. Pricing of each unit of study may increase from time-to-time and does not take into account personal circumstances such as recognition of prior learning, credit or repeating a unit.
KEY DATES AND Census Date
You should familiarise yourself with key dates, particularly the census date. The census date is important as it is the last day you can:
- submit your form to access a FEE-HELP or VSL loan, or
- withdraw/cancel your enrolment in your course in full or in part without incurring the cost, debt, academic penalty for any currently enrolled subject or unit (see Enrolment Rules for procedures on varying, withdrawing or cancelling your enrolment).
This date varies across courses and trimesters. You can view the Census Dates on ACAP’s key dates page.
Census date is your last opportunity to withdraw from your course without facing financial or academic penalty.
To withdraw prior to census:
- Domestic students call 1800 039 139
- International please email [email protected]
STUDENT SERVICES AND AMENITIES FEE (SSAF)
The Student Services and Amenities Fee is a Commonwealth Government legislated fee charged by many higher education providers across Australia to help fund support services for students of a non-academic nature, including recreational activities, accommodation, community events, student publications, and career and employment advice.
SSAF Frequently asked questions
The SSAF model allows funding to areas which would not normally be allocated through operational costs or cannot be funded due to legislation or education guidelines. It allows ACAP to allocate funding to services, facilities and student-focused initiatives that would otherwise be unsupported or unable to go ahead.
Services provided through the SSAF funding are made available to all ACAP students, and it is up to each individual student to choose their level of engagement with these services and activities.
SA-HELP is a Commonwealth loan available to eligible students to pay their Student Services and Amenities Fee (SSAF).
Your Student Services and Amenities Fee (SSAF) is not covered under FEE-HELP. However, eligible students may apply for SA-HELP to pay for all or part of the SSAF.
