Contract of Enrolment
Payment of Fees
Tuition fees are invoiced in advance at the beginning of the academic year. Payments are made either by a lump sum in February or by 10 equal monthly automatic payments from February to November inclusive. This must be organised by the beginning of the school year. Late payment of fees will incur any recovery costs. The Board of Trustees may cancel the enrolment of any student enrolled if Tuition Fees, Course Fees or other Fees have not been paid by the date specified. The Board may in its sole discretion remit or refund part or all of any Fees paid, but does not undertake to do so whether in lieu of notice or otherwise, on account of illness, quarantine or any other cause. All Fees are payable in full even if a student is absent on leave. Fees for international students are payable in advance for the academic year.
Advice of Withdrawal
A minimum of one term's notice must be given in writing to the Principal indicating a student's withdrawal from the College. Full fees shall be paid in lieu of notice calculated from the date of notice. The Board may, at its sole discretion, remit or refund part or all of any fees paid.
Infringement of Rules
If a student does not comply with the Rules (as amended from time to time), Wentworth reserves the right to suspend or expel the student. No refund of fees will be made.
To the fullest extent permitted by the Consumer Guarantees Act 1993 or otherwise at law or in equity, Wentworth shall under no circumstance be liable to the student or the applicant(s) or any other person for direct or indirect or consequential loss or damage of any kind arising out of or attributable to any breach by Wentworth of its obligations under the Contract of Enrolment, negligence on the part of Wentworth or any act or thing done or not done by Wentworth. For the purpose of this Contract of Enrolment consequential loss shall include (without limitation) loss of income or profit and loss or damage to persons or property.
Obligation by Wentworth
Wentworth undertakes to provide tuition as set down from time to time in the prospectus. In addition, Wentworth may decline to offer a subject if there are insufficient students wishing to study it or there is no staff member available to teach the course. In such cases, every effort will be made to find a replacement teacher or to offer courses through the NZ Correspondence School. At times, it may also be necessary to close the roll in a subject if it is deemed to be full by the Board of Trustees.
The information collected by Wentworth during the enrolment process and during the period in which the student is enrolled at Wentworth is intended for use in connection with the education and well-being of the student and may be used by any of the staff at Wentworth or any consultant to Wentworth in connection with that purpose. Information may be retained to enable Wentworth to contact former students. You have the right of access to and correction of the personal information collected by Wentworth.
Default and Consequences of Default
In the event of non payment of fees, interest will be charged at 2%. Any solicitor or debt collection costs will be at your expense.
