This section is applicable to domestic students who are permanent residents (who are not permanent humanitarian visa holders who are resident in Australia for the duration of the unit of study) and New Zealand citizens enrolled in a VET course of study offered by SITCM. All other students are considered International Students for fees purposes.
The census date for a module is the last day that students can:
- Withdraw from a module without incurring a financial liability for that module; or
- Withdraw their course enrolment without incurring a financial liability for the course.
The census dates for the 2017 academic year can be found below. The exact deadline of the census dates is the close of business.
Refer to Schedule of VET Tuition Fees & Census Dates below, showing four fee-periods, each with a set census date. After each census date, students will incur tuitions fees proportionate to each fee-period. Students will not be charged the total course tuition fees in one up-front hit.
Tuition fees are indicated above under each course. Tuition fees DO cover the charges for tuition administration, initial uniform and clinical practice handbook. Tuition fees DO NOT cover the charges for first aid training, accommodation, living expenses, non-compulsory textbooks, additional uniforms, and stationery.
Note: All fees are subject to annual review.
Students will not be permitted to commence or continue their course until all outstanding fees, charges or accounts are paid. Students will be charged the full amount for repeating any unit of study.
Fees are set each year and are payable before each term. The current rate will apply for the academic year of enrolment but may be subject to change in subsequent years in accordance with the rate set by SITCM. All fees, charges and accounts will be payable in as determined by SITCM.
Incidental fees are not covered by tuition fees.
