Registration hold now available for providers significantly affected by COVID-19
ASQA acknowledges the variety of challenges currently facing providers as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. We are committed to supporting the sector to navigate the way forward, including situations where providers feel they need to cease all delivery.
In these circumstances, ASQA can support those affected to maintain their registration by placing it on hold (effectively in hibernation) until the situation improves. This hold would be in place of registration withdrawal.
You can find out more about how to place your registration on hold and notify us of temporary changes on our Notify ASQA of temporary changes form page.
CRICOS providers seeking a hold on their registration will still be required to address their provider default obligations concerning international students, together with ASQA and the Tuition Protection Service (TPS).
