Fee Structure

Total Course Fee

Each training program offered by Asset College has a specific course fee. The course fee is the maximum fee that will be charged to the student for his / her selected training program. This fee is inclusive of:

  • Tuition and assessment
  • Support
  • Reference materials and mandatory textbooks
  • Access to resources and equipment

Where additional resources are required such as optional textbooks and reference documents or own computer, the student will be required to supply these at their own expense. Asset College may be able to supply some of these resources at an additional cost to the total course fee on request. In these circumstances, the pre-course information will outline the additional resources required.

Students enrolling in a training program with Asset College must pay the Total Course Fee in advance or upon commencement unless they have been pre-approved for the zipMoney Payment Plan option; or unless the student has been pre-approved for funding under a Government funding program.

zipMoney Payment Plans**

Some training programs listed on the Course Fees schedule indicate zipMoney Payment Plan option. This option allows students to apply for a 3, 6 or 12 month interest free loan to cover all or part of the cost of their qualification. The interest free period will depend on the total course of your qualification. Students must get pre-approval via the zipMoney pre-approval process before beginning their course. Once approved, students will be required to repay a minimum monthly amount of their qualification cost. For more information on the zipMoney approval process, fees and charges click here to download the brochure.

Government Funding**

From time-to-time Asset College gains access to Commonwealth and State funding initiatives that may contribute to some or all of the course fees for eligible participants undertaking eligible qualifications. Information regarding this funding will be provided separately to this document and outline the specific conditions and entitlements under the relevant funding program. Students enrolling in Government subsidised qualifications must be pre-approved for funding prior to commencement of their course.

** zipMoney Payment Plans and Government Funding is not available on all training programs, all locations and are generally not available through Training Partners. Additional fees, charges, terms and conditions apply for these payment options.

Making Payments

Students may make payments to Asset College by any of the following means:

  • Cash
  • Cheque / Money Order
  • EFTPOS
  • Credit Card (MasterCard and VISA only)
  • Direct Deposit
  • BPay and Australia Post BillPay (selected locations only)
  • PayPal (selected locations only)

Prior to commencement, Asset College cannot accept payments exceeding $1000 per student. Upon commencement, the maximum that Asset College can accept is $1500 per student attributable to tuition or other services yet to be delivered to the student. Where the total course exceeds $2500, the zipMoney Payment Plan option will be used. This process is designed to protect and safeguard the student fees and ensure that students are not disadvantaged.
