There is a student levy for all students. Please note this fee is included in your student fees (course fees).
A CSSF is a fee that Tertiary Education Organisations (TEOs) can charge domestic students to help fund the delivery of student services.
Students and TEO’s work together to set the fee, following guidelines that are set by the Ministerial Direction. The intention is to increase the involvement of students and ensure transparency in the setting and administration of the fees.
The Ministerial Direction sets out three key actions, related to decision-making, accounting for the fee, and reporting on its use. It also specifies what categories of student services the fee can support.
