Absence from the College
No reduction of fees will be made on account of an absence from the College, as the costs incurred in
operating the College are not lessened by the absence of individual students.
Some personal accident insurance is provided for students of Providence Christian College. However it is strongly recommended that parents check their health and general insurance policies as the College cannot accept responsibility for:
(i) Medical expenses arising from accident or illness;
(ii) Damage to personal effects; or
(iii) Property damage incurred by students.
Notice of Withdrawal
The Principal must be given a full school term’s notice in writing prior to the withdrawal of a student
from the College. In default of such notice, up to a full term’s fee will be charged. Verbal notice is not considered to be due notice of withdrawal.
Year 12 Fees
While students typically complete their Year 12 schooling at Providence early in Term 4, due to the resource intensive nature of this final year the full annual fee is payable.
Variances to Payment Options
Payment Options must be approved by the Business Manager. Please contact the Finance Office for
further information. All tuition accounts must be finalised by 30th November 2022.
Many families experience a period of financial hardship sometime during the schooling of their
child/ren. Although our ability to offer assistance is limited, we would value the opportunity to work with you through such a situation. Please contact the
Split Bill Arrangement
The College offers a split bill arrangement for parents. If you wish to organise this, please contact the Finance Office. Please note that having a split bill arrangement does not change the Enrolment Form Conditions and
Agreement that have been signed.
Late Payment of Fees
Parents/Guardians who are unable to pay fees by the due date must apply to the Finance Manager for
an extension of payment. In the event that fees are four (4) weeks overdue, the College will:
- charge an account administration fee of $50; and
- commence charging penalty interest at the overdraft rate charged by the College’s Bank
unless satisfactory alternatively arrangements have been made via an Extended Payment Plan.
The Principal also reserves the right to cancel a student’s enrolment where fees are overdue.
Any expenses, costs or disbursements incurred by Providence Christian College in recovering any outstanding monies will also be charged to the account.
