and Context:

It's not uncommon for life to take a different direction to the one planned, resulting in students needing to stop their studies unexpectedly (without notifying ICA in advance), or needing longer than the allocated access time to complete their studies.   As such, there is the option to defer program access for up to 3 months or extend on a month-by-month basis.  


This policy applies to ICA students.

Policy & Procedure

We allow students to defer for up to 3 months. During this time, you will not have access to the Learnsite, curriculum, forum or schedules.  This can be taken in one continuous period only. 

Students on a payment plan will be required to continue their monthly installments during periods of deferment (eg. payment plans are not linked to participation).

Eligibility Criteria

Students who want to defer for 3 months must meet the following requirements:

  1. Be an enrolled student with current program access

  2. Be able to provide records of program attendance to date (eg. Graduation Checklist)

  3. Be in good financial standing with ICA (fees paid in full or commitment to continuing payment plan)

  4. Demonstrate, or have demonstrated, a commitment to participating and completing their studies

  5. Not yet have commenced their performance evaluation process (observed coaching or oral exam)

Extend Your Program Access 

It might be that you simply need longer to complete your studies.  If so, apply for an extension.
