    Default withdrawing from a Diploma at TAFE

    hi

    im after some advice... I am 6 months or so into a Nursing Diploma at TAFE and am thinking of withdrawing..

    does anyone know the best way to do this and what happens to the HECS fees? i know i will have to pay HECS for what i have done so far but what happens with the next 12 months of my course?

    Thanks in advance

    Were you not slugged the full fee at the beginning? With mine i was so even though i dropped out part way through the course i still have the whole huge hecs debt.
    I'd put in writing asap that you are withdrawing for the course asap and give it to the appropriate person at TAFE. That way if you are charged by semester, they won't be able to charge you for the ones you have remaining.

    Can i ask why you are dropping out? I remember reading your posts and you seemed really excited to be studying nursing. .. although i guess i was at one point too.

    I actually cant remember if i was charged the whole amount or not..lol

    I am still in 2 minds about it, but i know i need to make a decision in the next week or so...

    I was enjoying it but i have a few things going on here at home and my heart and head isnt in the right space at the moment... the next few days will hopefully see things become clearer and i will make a few decisions.

    I would check with your TAFE to be certain but if you enrolled via VET FEE-HELP then I think there is a certain date for withdrawals - if you withdraw after that date then unless there are extenuating circumstances (evidence required) then you generally are still left with the debt for the full course
