Dolph Business School charge fees for services provided to students undertaking a course of study. These fees are for items such as administrative support, student services as well as the applicable training and assessment services.

When and how do I pay?

Fees are payable within 7-days of receiving an invoice from Dolph Business School. 50% of the tuition fees are to be paid when the student accepts a place at Dolph Business School (usually 1-2 weeks of submitting an enrolment form). The remaining 50% of the tuition fees are due 2-weeks before the commencement of study period 2. Fees for the workbooks are due 2-weeks prior to the commencement of the course.

Payment methods include bank transfer, or credit card. Should you require a payment plan, please speak to one of our Student & Administration Support team members prior to enrolling.

Dolph Business School may cancel an enrolment or discontinue training if fees are not paid by the due date.

Should you have difficulty paying your fees by the due date, please speak to our Student and Administration Support Manager to discuss any flexible payment options that may be available for your circumstance.

If a student is offered a payment plan and the student defaults on the agreed payment plan, the student may not be considered for subsequent payment plan requests. The debt becomes payable in full immediately or the student may be suspended from further training. This in turn, may result in the cancellation of your student visa.
