2017 Fee Schedule
Commonwealth FEE-HELP Scheme
The Commonwealth Government FEE-HELP Scheme (FHS) for Private Higher Education Providers will continue in 2016. The FHS is a similar student loan scheme to the HECS-HELP Scheme for public university students.
Under the FHS, upon application by an eligible student, tuition fees of subjects taken for credit will be paid on the student's behalf, in the same as HECS-HELP. The student then accrues a debt with the ATO, to be repaid through the PAYG tax system upon employment.
The provision of FHS is separate from existing Centrelink Student Support Allowances, such as Austudy, Abstudy, Youth Allowance and Rent Assistance.
The FEE-HELP Information Booklet and Request for FEE-HELP Assistance (Application Form) are available from the College's Administration Office.
Commonwealth Government's FEE-HELP Scheme
As an affiliated college of the Australian College of Theology, the Reformed Theological College is a participant in the ACT's Tuition Assurance arrangements. This requirement is to protect a student in the event that the Australian College of Theology (or the Reformed Theological College) ceases to provide a course of study in which a student is enrolled. The meaning of 'ceasing to provide a course of study' is set out in the HEP Guidelines. The RTC complies with the policy of the Australian College of Theology in this matter.
Variation of Enrolment
(including Withdrawals and Refunding of Fees)
The RTC complies with the policy for Variation of Enrolment as provided by the Australian College of Theology.
All enquiries should be forwarded to the RTC's Registrar.
RTC students who are communicant members of a supporting CRCA or RCNZ church are welcome to apply for an assistance scholarship with their enrolment each semester. Candidates for ordination may receive $375 for every class-based unit taught in Melbourne (including intensives) and $250 for units taken by distance correspondence. Other supporting church students receive $125 per semester unit. Please contact the registrar for further information.
