Part 2—Payment of student contribution amounts and fees

Division 2.1—Domestic student tuition fees

7          Domestic students: fees for award programs

                    (1)    This section applies to a domestic student if the student is enrolled in a program for an award for any semester, session or trimester.

                    (2)    The student must pay the University the tuition fees payable, under the contribution amounts and fees schedule, for the courses to be undertaken in the program for the semester, session or trimester.

                    (3)    However, the student is not required to pay tuition fees if:

                                           (a)    the student:
                                                           (i)    is eligible for FEE-HELP or HECS-HELP assistance from the Commonwealth and has taken out a FEE-HELP or HECS-HELP loan before the relevant census date; or

                                                         (v)    holds a place fully funded by an employer; and
                                          (b)    the student’s obligation to pay the fees is met under the award, scheme or arrangement mentioned in paragraph (a).

                    (4)    To remove any doubt, a student mentioned in subsection (3)(a) remains personally liable to pay tuition fees if the student’s obligation to pay the fees is not met under the award, scheme or arrangement.

                    (5)    Also, if the Vice-Chancellor, Deputy Vice-Chancellor or relevant Associate Dean sponsors all or part of the student’s tuition fees in accordance with the HES Act, the student is not required to pay the sponsored fees.

8          Domestic students: fees for non-award programs etc.

                    (1)    If a student is enrolled in a non-award program for any semester, session or trimester, the student must pay the University the tuition fees payable, under the contribution amounts and fees schedule, for the courses to be undertaken in the program for the semester, session or trimester.

                    (2)    The student must pay the tuition fees whether or not the student’s performance is to be examined.

                    (3)    If a contributing student is enrolled in a course for any semester, session or trimester and the course does not have a Commonwealth supported place for that semester, session or trimester, the student must pay the University the tuition fees payable, under the contribution amounts and fees schedule, for that course.

                    (4)    If a cross-institutional student of another tertiary institution is enrolled in a course or other work requirement for any semester, session or trimester and the course or other work requirement forms part of a coursework program offered by the University, the student must pay the University the tuition fees payable, under the contribution amounts and fees schedule, for that course or other work requirement.

                    (5)    However, the cross-institutional student is not required to pay the tuition fees if:

                                           (a)    the student discharges the student’s liability by taking out a FEE-HELP loan before the relevant census date; or
                                          (b)    the student is awarded a Commonwealth supported place by the University and either pays the student contribution amount or defers the student contribution using HECS-HELP.

                    (6)    If a cross-institutional student of another tertiary education institution holds a scholarship or other award that exempts the student from a requirement to pay tuition fees, the student is taken to be enrolled at the other institution on a fee-paying basis.

Division 2.2—Overseas student fees

9          Overseas students: fees

                    (1)    This section applies to an overseas student if the student is (or is to be) enrolled in a program for any semester, session or trimester.

                    (3)    However, the student is not required to pay fees if the student: holds a scholarship, approved by the University, that meets the student’s obligation to pay the fees and the student’s obligation to pay the fees is met under the scholarship.

                    (4)    To remove any doubt, the student mentioned in subsection (3) remains personally liable to pay fees if the student’s obligation to pay the fees is not met under the scholarship.

                    (5)    Also, if the Vice-Chancellor, Deputy Vice-Chancellor or relevant Associate Dean sponsors all or part of the student’s tuition fees in accordance with the HES Act, the student is not required to pay the sponsored fees.

10      Overseas students becoming permanent visa holders

                    (1)    If an overseas student becomes a permanent visa holder after arriving in Australia, the person ceases to be an overseas student, and is to be treated as a domestic student, if the HES Act, or a legislative instrument under the HES Act, so requires.

                    (3)    Also, if the continued entitlement of an overseas student to stay in Australia, or to enter and stay in Australia, is subject to any limitation as to time imposed by law on the census date for a semester, session or trimester, the person remains an overseas student for that semester, session or trimester.
