Learning Membership Policy - Sydney Community College

Learning Membership Policy

This policy sets out the terms and conditions of membership in the Sydney Community College Learning Membership Program.

Your Learning Membership will commence on the day you have accepted this policy and end 365 days from this date unless the learning membership is renewed.

You agree to be bound and comply with the Sydney Community College general terms and conditions and policies published on the Sydney Community College website. Where any terms and conditions or policies are inconsistent with these Terms and Conditions, these Terms and Conditions will prevail.

Learning Member Cancellations, Refunds, and Expiry

  • Sydney Community College may terminate a Learning Membership if a learning member fails to comply with these terms and conditions or misuses Learning Membership privileges.
  • Current Learning membership benefits are as advised here in this policy and in email marketing. They may be changed from time to time by Sydney Community College at its absolute discretion.
  • Learning Memberships cannot be returned/refunded or redeemed for cash.
  • The expiry date of an annual Learning Membership cannot be paused or suspended.
  • A Sydney Community College Learning Membership will be considered "expired" if not renewed by the due date.
