A phone call, a text, an email, or saying you want to withdraw in person is not a withdrawal. You are required to submit the documentation above fully and correctly in order to withdraw.
If you have or will be getting a student loan and / or allowance, you need to inform StudyLink as well. We will not confirm this to StudyLink until you have submitted your full withdrawal.

- Do not post, fax or email a copy to us.
- Do not leave it unattended on our premises.

It is your legal responsibility to ensure we receive your complete withdrawal.
We must receive your full withdrawal within three (3) weeks after you left the programme or prior to the end of the term during which you left the programme, whichever comes first.
Withdrawal Administration Fees
Your withdrawal may trigger administration fees which you must pay from your own personal money. Fees and charges are listed on our Web site at www.nasa.co.nz/fees/.

You may be billed for the time and resources used in pursuing your withdrawal. Fees and charges are listed on our Web site at www.nasa.co.nz/fees/.
You are responsible for all programme fees and course related costs due, and you may not receive any refund, if eligible, if you do not correctly complete the withdrawal process.
