Student Fee Refund Policy (updated and applies from September 1st 2018)

Capernwray NZ will refund the fees paid within four weeks after the day the student withdraws from the course, less amounts according to the circumstances detailed below.  Capernwray NZ will issue a statement explaining how the refund is worked out in accordance with the Student Refund Policy.

Cancellation Prior to Commencement of Course:

In the event of cancellation, notice must be received in writing

  • In all cases, the Registration Fee is non-refundable
  • A cancellation received more than three (3) months prior to the commencement of the enrolled course will receive a refund of 50% of deposit
  • A cancellation received less than three (3) months prior to the commencement of the enrolled course the deposit will be deemed non-refundable
  • In the event that full fees have been paid and a cancellation is received more than one (1) month prior to the commencement of the enrolled course, a refund of full fees minus deposit will be made
  • In the event that full fees have been paid and a cancellation is received less than one (1) month prior to commencement of the enrolled course, a refund will be provided subject to the Capernwray NZ Director’s discretion, based on the ability to fill the vacated place on the course by another student and actual costs incurred
  • In the unusual circumstance of visa to study is declined, an international student will receive a full refund of any deposit or balance of fees paid

Non-completion of Course:

Once the course has started, Capernwray NZ is under no obligation to reimburse students for fees in the event of withdrawal or dismissal from the course, and will not ordinarily do so. 
However in exceptional circumstances (eg health, family bereavement), Capernwray NZ will at its discretion reimburse a proportion of the fees. This will be to a maximum of one half (50%) of unused proportion of the fees paid, which reflects the variable cost savings (essentially food and utilities) from the largely fixed costs associated with running the school.

Fees Subject to Change:

Please note that fees may be subject to change. If fees are increased, there will be no additional increase if the Registration Fee $75 (NZD) has been received by the Bible School. If fees are decreased, there will be no adjustment or refund of the decreased amount once the Registration Fee $75 (NZD) has been received by the Bible School, subject to the discretion of the Capernwray NZ Director.

Protection of Fees:

On receiving the Application Fee, Deposit and Balance of Fees, all monies are deposited in our ‘Student Trust Fund’, which are separate bank accounts with Westpac Banking Corporation, assigned only to receive School Fees. Money from the student is not drawn from this account until the commencement of the course, and then proportionately on a scheduled periodic basis throughout the duration of the course.

Refund in the Event the Course is not Delivered:

In the event that Capernwray NZ is unable to deliver the course offered, the applicant/student with be contacted within 7 days following sufficient evidence for being unable to offer the course. A full refund of monies paid will be offered and given within 7 days after written notification by the applicant/student requesting a refund. Capernwray NZ will also notify the applicant/student of other colleges delivering a similar course and/or other Capernwray Torchbearer Bible Schools which may accept the student.

To donate towards a student registered at Capernwray NZ

Attending Bible School is a life investment, and many students have friends and family who show their support through financial assistance.

A cost effective way is by making arrangements for an individual (or Church) to co-ordinate collecting gifts and the accumulated funds can be given to the student directly, or sent through to Capernwray New Zealand in one transaction, reducing the international transaction fees.

Note that all donations received by Capernwray New Zealand for forwarding onto students will be receipted, but may not be tax deductable for gifts originating outside of New Zealand. As every country has different laws associated with tax deductable giving, please seek advice from a local tax advisor.

Contact the Business Manager for options to send gifts internationally.
