ACPET’s Australian Student Tuition Assurance Scheme (ASTAS) is the largest and most effective tuition assistance scheme in Australia. Members have access to tuition assurance that protects student fees paid in advance. Tuition assurance is offered to members:

  • approved to offer FEE-HELP loans and VET FEE-HELP loans, as well as those
  • which operate as RTOs and do not have VET FEE-HELP approval (to meet their compliance with the Standards for NVR Registered Training Organisations (SNR 11.3e and 22.3e)

ACPET's ASTAS has been approved by ASQA for SNR compliance.

The Commonwealth government's Tuition Protection Scheme (TPS) protects fees paid in advance by international students. Further details on the TPS are available at: www.tps.gov.au

Members are required to notify ACPET of any changes to scope – including revenue projections, student numbers, census dates and additions or deletions of courses - to ensure ASTAS cover is current and effectively covers the members’ operations. This may trigger a variation to ASTAS cover.
