Verifying enrolment in an approved course
Evidence of enrolment must be obtained if:
- doubt exists about the enrolment, OR
- an EdEP has been requested in advance, OR
- whether the course is ABSTUDY approved.
Explanation: Although the legislation refers to an ABSTUDY approved course, the person does not have to be qualified for ABSTUDY. An ABSTUDY approved course includes all courses approved under the ministerial determination of education institutions and courses (1.1.A.210) as well as some additional ABSTUDY approved courses - refer to 126.96.36.199.
