Terms and Conditions

It is important that all students read our GradSchool terms and conditions each trimester/semester before enrolling.

Enrolment

Students must enrol using the Online Enrolment system available at http://myhub.newcastle.edu.au. The number of students admitted to a program or enrolled in a course for a given term may be limited.

While GradSchool and the University provide students with assistance and advice, it is the student’s responsibility to ensure that the courses selected meet the program rules and requirements and that they are enrolled correctly. GradSchool and the University take no responsibility for error in course selection, or failure to complete the necessary enrolment procedures. Program details can be seen at http://gradschool.edu.au/postgraduate-coursework.

Payment of Fees

  1. IMPORTANT INFORMATION
    Students must ensure that they are familiar with the important information available at http://gradschool.edu.au/future-students/fees-and-costs.
  2. UPFRONT PAYMENT
    Tuition fees must be paid in full within 14 days of being invoiced by the University. Invoices will be available via MyHub at http://myhub.newcastle.edu.au. Any student who is indebted to the University may be refused permission to enrol and her or his academic results may be withheld.
  3. FEE-HELP
    Eligible students, who wish to take advantage of a FEE-HELP loan (to defer payment of tuition fees), must complete an Electronic Commonwealth Assistance Form (eCAF) before the census date. If the eCAF form is not submitted on time you will need to pay these fees upfront to the University. The FEE-HELP eCAF is available online via MyHub.
  4. STUDENT SERVICES AND AMMENITIES FEE (SSAF)
    Eligible students who wish to take advantage of an SA-HELP loan (to defer payment of the SSAF) must complete a Commonwealth Assistance Form before the census date.

Withdrawal Policy

Students wishing to withdraw from a course(s) must do so using the Online Enrolment system at http://myhub.newcastle.edu.au.

Students that withdraw from a course after the census date for that term will be liable for the full tuition costs for that course.

Students may withdraw without academic penalty at any time during a term until the last day of term. A failure (FF) grade will result where a student does not complete the course requirements and neglects to withdraw on or before the last day of term.

Distribution of course materials

Prior to the commencement of term, GradSchool will distribute at its expense, course materials to the mailing address nominated during the Online Enrolment process. If GradSchool receives advice of a change of address after course materials have been dispatched, any redirection costs will be the student’s responsibility.
