In the realm of Registered Training Organizations (RTO) and Commonwealth Register of Institutions and Courses for Overseas Students (CRICOS) providers, debt collection poses unique challenges. Students enrolling and then leaving, defaulting on payments, and transferring to different institutions can create complex situations for providers seeking to recover outstanding debts. At Bluechip Collections, we specialise in addressing these challenges head-on. In this blog post, we’ll explore the specific issues faced by RTOs and CRICOS providers and share how our tailored debt collection strategies can help navigate these complexities effectively.

Understanding the Landscape:

RTOs and CRICOS providers play a vital role in Australia’s education sector, offering a wide range of courses to domestic and international students. However, the transient nature of student enrollment, coupled with financial difficulties or changes in immigration status, can lead to non-payment of tuition fees and other obligations.

One common scenario we encounter is students defaulting on payments to their original CRICOS provider after transferring to a different institution. This can result in canceled Confirmation of Enrolment (CoE) and increased financial strain on the original provider, who may struggle to recover the outstanding debts.
