Enrolment Terms and Conditions

Please read the Enrolment Terms and Conditions carefully before enrolling into your chosen course. These are also included in your Application and Enrolment Form.

In order to enrol, complete your Application and Enrolment Form to the College of Integrative Veterinary Therapies.


1. New Students: To reserve your place in a course, fees must be paid as outlined in your course information package – for a single unit this may require payment in full while with longer courses a deposit will be required followed by monthly instalment payments (or as negotiated). Late enrolments are accepted in some circumstances, where places are available.

2. In common with other educational institutions, fees are non-refundable and non- transferable unless a course or module or unit of study or seminar or workshop is cancelled by the College of Integrative Veterinary Therapies. In this instance a full refund is provided including any Enrolment Fee.

3. Refunds for Cancellation/Withdrawal: Refunds can be granted for course fees paid, less a $250 administration fee per module (note that some courses have more than one module), provided advice of withdrawal is received in writing 14 days prior to the commencement date of the unit, module or course whether on-line or face-to-face. NOTE: Once you have logged into your on line classroom, your course is deemed to have commenced.

Please advise the reason for withdrawal on the Cancellation/Withdrawal form with supporting documentation. Choose your courses carefully as unfortunately we cannot accept responsibility for changes in your personal circumstances or work commitments which occur after the commencement of your course. Any course fees outstanding are still due and payable.

5. Transfers: A transfer is defined as either a change from one course to another within the same term or changing study options within the same module. No fee applies to transfers.

6. We reserve the right to delay progression in your course if your fees are not paid or up to date.

7. Our Service Quality Commitment : CIVT Management is responsible for the quality of its training and assessment services in compliance with the Standards for RTOs 2015, and for the issuance of the AQF certification documentation. Once you have commenced the training and assessment in this Course , CIVT is committed to completing the delivery of the training assessment within the agreed duration and will further negotiate the timing for completion of the training assessment if you are unable to complete the course due to illness or extenuating circumstances. We offer an Absence of Leave option and an Extension of Course Time option. It is your responsibility to alert us if you require either of these.

  • Deferrals or Absence of Leave: Students wishing to take a break from their studies (you will not be able to access your studies) need to complete a Deferral/Leave of Absence Form. Deferment only applies to ongoing modules within a program (e.g. if a student has completed one or two modules in an ongoing course and cannot complete the remaining modules within the specified time frame for the course). Deferral will be granted for a period of 6 months maximum in most instances. Leave of Absence refers to a break in study during an on-going course or module that has already been accessed. A deferral/leave of absence fee of $50.00 is payable upon approval of the deferral/ leave of absence application.
  • Extensions: Students have a specific time limit to complete a Unit/Module or Course via the on line or distance learning format. Students who fail to submit their assessments in the specified time will receive a "did not complete" on their academic record. Your course information will include details of the time limits to complete your chosen unit/module/course – please be aware that with multi-modular courses the suggested time-frame will include maximum access time for each module as well as the entire course.

Special Circumstances: Students are eligible to apply for an Extension of Time (and still be able to access their studies) to be granted an additional 3 months of study upon written application if you become seriously ill, are a victim of a crime, suffer hardship or trauma. Supporting documentation must accompany the written application. An extension fee of $100.00 is payable for a 3 month extension, upon approval of extension application. For longer courses, which should have been completed within a given time frame, extensions are available for a further year with a fee of $300.00.

8. To assist your budget, fees are charged on a per course basis, unit basis or module basis. We do have flexible payment plans for some courses and programs (see your chosen course for details of fees). Note that for courses or programs where payments are made per module or unit, no Certificates or Statements of Attainment will be supplied until all units or modules have been completed and fees paid.

9. The College reserves the right to vary course structure, teaching staff, adjust fees or class schedules at any time. It is at the College's discretion to discontinue offering a course, module or unit of study as deemed necessary.

10. The College reserves the right to cancel a course, or refuse any enrolment as permitted by law.
