(c) the enrolment of a person to undertake such a course or part of such a course during a year where the person has already enrolled in such a course or part of such a course in respect of that year at the College, being another course in respect of which higher education administration charge was imposed in respect of that year;

(d) the enrolment of a person who is included in a class of persons specified by the Minister for the purposes of paragraph (d) of the definition of ‘relevant enrolment’ in sub-section 3 (1) of the States Grants (Tertiary Education Assistance) Act 1984;

(e) the enrolment of a person to undertake part of such a course during a year where that enrolment is required for the purposes of another course being undertaken by that person at another tertiary education institution, being another course in respect of which an amount of higher education administration charge was imposed in respect of that year; or

(f) the enrolment of a person to undertake such a course where the College provides a scholarship for the person to undertake that course, being a scholarship that entitles the person to an amount by way of living allowance of at least $1,000 per annum, not including any amount payable in respect of the person’s dependants.

“(2) The College shall, in relation to the year commencing on 1 January 1987 and each subsequent year, impose an amount of higher education administration charge in respect of each relevant enrolment at the College in respect of that year, being the amount applicable under section 4d of the States Grants (Tertiary Education Assistance) Act 1984 in respect of that year.

“(3) Where a person who is required to pay an amount of higher education administration charge in respect of the enrolment of the person to undertake a course of study or instruction or part of a course of study or instruction at the College in respect of a year fails to pay that amount to the College before the final payment day for that course or that part of that course in that year, the person shall, unless the Principal of the College otherwise determines, cease to be enrolled to undertake that course or that part of that course during that year.


 

“(4) For the purposes of this section, where the enrolment of a person to undertake a course of study or instruction at the College entitles the person to undertake a part of that course in more than one year, the person shall be deemed to become enrolled to undertake that course in respect of each year in which the person undertakes a part of that course.

“(5) The reference in sub-section (3) to the final payment day for a course or a part of a course in a year is a reference to such day during that year as is determined by the Principal of the College in relation to that course or that part of that course.”.
