If you withdraw prior to the course commencing and require a refund, an administration fee may apply. NorthTec cancellation policy may apply. If you withdraw during the course your fee may not be refunded. If you intend on withdrawing, please advise us early so that your place can be offered to waitlisted people.

Access to ACE courses for people with disabilities
In most cases NorthTec courses can take place at a venue to suit the group involved. NorthTec campuses and learning centres have access facilities for people requiring them. Disability support services may also be available.
Students are required to show proof of payment of their course to the tutor to gain admittance to the course. Your student number is to be placed against your name on the attendance register.
All enrolments should be paid for prior to the commencement of the course. No enrolment means your place on the course is unsecured.
If you pay on the first night of the course you must have the correct cash or cheque made out to NorthTec and provide identification.
ACE funding is for people over 16. The exception is people 15 years to 16 years who provide a Ministry of Education Exemption Certificate. A copy of this must be provided with the enrolment form and fees for the student to participate in an ACE course.
International students must pay full fees. These are on the factsheet for all courses. ACE courses are funded for New Zealand citizens/residents. There is no funding for international students.
