What is a Sponsorship?

A Sponsorship is a payment made by a third party towards a student's fees. A Sponsorship may cover all or part of a student's tuition fees. It may also cover the Student Services and Amenities Fee (SSAF).

What to consider before establishing a sponsorship

  • What percentage of the tuition fee will be sponsored?
  • Will the SSAF be covered?
  • Who will be invoiced for the sponsorship amount?
  • How long will the student/s be sponsored for?
  • Will the sponsorship apply to all or specific study terms?
  • Are there any ongoing requirements that the student/s needs to meet?

Sponsorship Invoicing Cycle

Sponsors are invoiced bi-annually in April and October.

The sponsor is liable for payment of the full invoiced amount as defined in the sponsorship agreement. Unpaid sponsorship amounts may lead to the termination of the sponsorship agreement by the University and cancellation of the student's enrolment

Refer to the Student Fees Policy for more information on sponsorship.

Term of Sponsorship

The sponsorship agreement will be valid for three years. The agreement can be terminated at any time by either party with 30 days written notice. Upon termination, the sponsor bears full responsibility for the payment of fees for study periods with a census date prior to the date of termination.

Adding and removing students

Sponsors can add and remove students within the duration of the agreement. If removing a student from the sponsorship, it is the sponsors responsibility to advise ACU Fees Sponsorship prior to the commencement of the next study period.

Legislation requires that no changes are made to student accounts after the respective census dates. For the commencing and census dates for each study period, visit Semester, term and trimester dates.
