Course Transfer refers to a student request for a transfer to another course within CA International College prior to the completion of the course where the student is currently enrolled.

If the transfer is initiated by us (eg. you graduate to the next level or we close a course) no transfer fee is charged or payable. The transfer fee is $100. If the student initiates the transfer, then the student will only be charged the transfer fee on the second transfer per course registration. Once the course has started, students may “transfer” the remaining lessons as follows:
