Students who withdraw are entitled to a full refund of fees and charges where:
- a unit is cancelled or rescheduled to a time unsuitable to the student; or
- a student is not given a place due to a maximum number of places being reached.
Students who lodge a withdrawal form before 20% of the way between the commencement and completion dates of a unit will be eligible for a full refund of the tuition fee for the unit, and:
- a full refund of the resource fee if the course is a Diploma or Advanced Diploma.
If a student can provide written evidence that they must withdraw for reasons of personal circumstances beyond their control a pro-rata refund may be approved.

Fee Protection Arrangements
Central Regional TAFE is a Government entity and as required under the Standards for Registered Training Organisations 2015 (RTO Standards) the College will protect learners' prepaid fees and refund monies where required (see above). The College will at all times have relevant protections in place for student fees that are collected in advance either via agreement or relevant insurances.
