  4. In the case that tuition fees are to be paid in two payments (e.g. semester one and then another in semester two), CCL will pay the first semester fees upon receipt of the providers invoice. The remaining funds will be withheld to use towards payment of second semester fees once the providers invoice is received.
  5. Any remaining funds after all tuition fees are paid will be paid immediately and directly to the student. Should the remaining balance be $1,500 or more, CCL may request receipts or quotes that show the funds were used to cover costs associated with full-time tertiary study.
  6. If tuition fees have already been paid via another funding source, CCL Directors have the discretion to make payment for other costs identified by the student (i.e. course-related costs or accommodation). Payment will be made direct to the provider in the first instance; or to the student directly in the second instance.
