CPA PEP admission applications are accepted throughout the year. You should submit your admission application based either on the session you plan to start your first module or based on when you want to start accumulating practical experience.

Our academic year runs from April 1 of the current year to March 31 of the next year. Your initial candidate dues cover either a full year or half year and are

  • $1020 + GST is due when you submit your admission application
    If you submit an admission application between April 1 and September 30
  • $510 + GST is due when you submit your admission application (half the annual fee)
    If you submit an admission application between October 1 and March 31

To register in a module without paying a late fee, you need to submit an admission application at least five business days before the registration period closes to ensure the admission application is processed with enough time for you to log into your portal and register. CPAWSB cannot guarantee that admission applications submitted within four days before the registration period closes will be approved in time for you to register in a module without paying a late fee.

If you miss the registration deadline and submit a CPA PEP admission application at least one month before the start of the module, you will be placed on the module registration wait list. The wait list fee is $310 plus GST (subject to change). If you are on the wait list, you can register for the module up until one week before the module starts.
