Payment Options, Fees and Refunds

Here is some important information to help you with fee payment, refunds and other financial matters that may affect you as a student studying at the Canberra Institute of Technology.

Important Things to Remember

Keep records of ALL payments and PROOF OF PAYMENT.

  • These including cheque and money order stubs, bank and credit card statements and receipt details.

Pay full semester fees before the start of semester.

  • International students are required to pay their full semester fees before the commencement of each new semester.  Please note: All new students will be issued with CIT bank account details for payment once you have met all conditions on your Letter of Offer.
  • You are able to pay your fees at the CIT International office or CIT Student Services on the CIT Reid and CIT Bruce Campuses.
  • If you experience financial difficulties any time during your studies at CIT, please contact CIT International to discuss options that maybe put in place to assist you at that time.

Keep your contact details up-to-date AT ALL TIMES.

  • CIT International sends out invoices to students prior to the due date, so it is important to keep all your contact details up to date at all times (e.g. home address, mobile phone number, email, postal address etc.).
  • This is one of your student visa requirements. If CIT International staff don't have your new contact information it means they can't contact you to send you important information and invoices.
