FAQs about the program

For participants

How do I accept my offer?

1. You should have received an offer from us by email. It will have a button at the end for you to accept the offer. Click ‘Accept’.

2. Once you click Accept, you will be directed to the participation form. Complete the form and submit it.

3. Hooray! You’ve accepted your offer.

Is the 2022 NYSF Year 12 Program going to be held online or in-person?

The 2022 Year 12 Program will be delivered as a mixed-mode experience – a combination of in-person and digital events.

You can choose to travel to the in-person events, but you won’t miss out if you can’t make it! We’ve got an excellent line-up of specialist digital sessions for that week too.

 

Are accommodation and travel included?

If you choose to travel to attend an in-person hub, you are responsible for organising your own travel and accommodation.

This is not provided by the NYSF or included in your program fee.

More information regarding the delivery of the program in 2022 is available on the NYSF Year 12 Program page.

 

My application to attend the program was successful, but I haven't received a formal offer, program agreement, or invoice for the program fee. What should I do?

Offers, program agreements, invoices, and any other important information will be sent to you or your parent/guardian via the email addresses provided in your application.

You must accept your offer before you receive your program agreement. Check your emails for the offer email, click ‘accept’, then fill out the form as directed and click ‘submit’.

You will receive your program agreement for signing once you have accepted your offer, and an invoice for your program fee once your agreement has been signed by both you and your parent/guardian.

If you haven't received an offer, agreement, or invoice from the NYSF and you think you should have, please check your spam/junk folder, and email us at nysf@nysf.edu.au if you can’t find it.

 

I made a mistake when accepting my offer, providing my health/medical information, or signing my agreement, or my details have changed and need to be updated. What should I do?

Please email us at nysf@nysf.edu.au and we can update your information or reissue paperwork with corrected details.

 

My parent/guardian received an invoice for the program fee, but a Rotary Club is supporting me financially. Do I need to pay this invoice, or will the Rotary Club be invoiced separately?

The NYSF invoices parents/guardians for all program fees, and your parent/guardian is responsible for full payment.

If you are receiving funding from a Rotary Club or other third party, they should pay their contribution to you directly, not to the NYSF.

The NYSF does not invoice third parties separately unless there are extenuating circumstances.

Please email us at nysf@nysf.edu.au if you need to discuss payment of your program fee.

 

For parents and guardians

Has my child accepted their offer to attend the 2022 NYSF Year 12 Program? Have I completed all the required tasks to confirm their registration?

Both you and your child will receive an email confirmation once they accept their offer to attend the 2022 NYSF Year 12 Program.

You both then need to sign the program agreement, which will be emailed to you both separately.

Once the agreement is signed by both of you, an invoice for the program fee will be sent to you (the parent or guardian) and must be paid by 12 November 2021.

We will follow up with you if you have any outstanding tasks to complete.
