ACT Legal for school to charge next term's full tuition fee after quitting?

Hello, just wondering if I can get your thoughts on this.

I am studying a diploma course at a vocational college. I was planning to quit my current school to move to another school. However because I failed to notify my current school 2 weeks before the agreed notifying date, I am liable to pay next term's tuition in full. They are threatening to report me to the Department of Home Affairs if I do not pay.

I was wondering if this is legal, and if anyone has any experience with this.

I'd recommend taking legal advise on this matter. I believe there are several institutions that offer free legal counsel to students.

Hi Mysticriver, could you mention one or two examples of such institutions? I have tried to send email to ACCC, but I am afraid it will take 15 days before they send me a response and by then my COE would have been cancelled and reported.

well, if you are in a tight timeline, I am afraid you might need to contact professional lawyers for a fee.
 
Consider before posting:
  • Do not post the same thing in multiple places.
  • No personal contact and/or non-English phrase is allowed.
  • Always post in a relevant thread or open a new one.
  • Better to use the reactions in a post to congratulate/thank.
