APAC charges education providers to accredit programs of study. The cost of assessment is determined by a number of factors including:
- Type of accreditation, e.g. full cycle, new program or modification to an existing program
- Complexity of accreditation, e.g. program offered from two or more sites or offshore
Cycle assessments: APAC will issue a tax invoice for payment of the accreditation fee after receipt of Notification of Intended Application of the programs of study and campuses to be assessed.
Out-of-cycle assessments: APAC will issue a tax invoice for payment of the accreditation fee after receipt of the application for the programs of study to be assessed.
If APAC receives a concern or notification relating to a potential breach of the Standards and needs to undertake an assessment or audit as part of the monitoring process, APAC will invoice the education provider to recover costs.
