Payment Options


Upfront Payment

Students can choose to pay up to $1500 of their student contribution fees upfront at enrolment. Further payments of up to $1500 can be made at later stages of a student's enrolment. ACCCO accepts the following payment methods:

  • Credit Card
  • Bank Transfer
  • Cheque


Payment Plan

Students can choose to enter into a payment plan arrangement to pay off their student contribution fees in smaller amounts over a period of time.

Students entering into an ACCCO payment plan have the option of fortnightly or monthly payments. Students with contributions fees of over $1500 can also request a weekly payment plan.

Payment plans require an initial upfront payment towards their student contribution fees to set up the plan, and then each payment period a recurring payment amount is direct debited from the student's nominated account.

Students are given recurring payment amount options when setting up their plan.

Example plans are given below.
