APPLICATION FEE TERMS AND CONDITIONS

Application Fee Refunds
It is an applicant’s responsibility to understand the eligibility requirements of the credential to which the applicant is applying. Refunds are not granted under any circumstance, including to applicants who did not meet a specialty nursing organisation’s minimum requirements to apply. This is because the fee you pay covers the costs to C4N in assessing your application.

Withdrawn Application

The application fee is non-refundable should the applicant decide not to proceed with their application at any stage. 

 

Unsuccessful Application
The application fee will not be refunded should the applicant be unsuccessful in being awarded a credential.

Lapsed Application
Where an applicant allows an application to lapse (i.e. does not respond to a request for further information within six months), no application fee refund will be given and the applicant will be required to make a new application and pay a new fee for any subsequent application. 

You will be asked to confirm you acknowledge that you have read and understand the above terms and conditions of the application fee in your application.

Please note:  Once you have submitted payment, you will receive a receipt from PayPal indicating payment to Australian College of Mental Health Nurses Incorporated.
