I began to study my Diploma in Community Service Work in 2014, I thought it was great to start with, because I worked full time and EVOCCA College provided flexible online learning modes of study, & it would fit my busy lifestyle just fine - I completed what I could & started to lose motivation when I felt that my tutors where using a check list to mark my work, therefore leaving me wondering if my tutor had any experience in the community service field to start with.

When I lost motivation I began to fall behind in my studies, all the while being charged for units I haven't even looked at or started, I was apparently sent census dates of which I would be charged for my studies if I didn't cancel. I believe myself & many other students were not given sufficient information regarding the charges of the course if we didn't cancel before the census date. However cancelling meant l would be totally cut off from the whole course without being given the opportunity to complete what I have already been charged for. When enrolled at uni you are given the opportunity to enrol in a course & it is made very clear that if one does not cancel before the census date then they are charged for that course. EVOCCA does not give the opportunity to enrol in each unit & do not give clear instructions about the census dates.

As a result I have been charged $18000 to my VET-FEE for one unit for my diploma in community service course & the competency that I have received is a CERT IV unit. Please help
