Fee-paying students and course transfers, transition and deferrals
Southern Cross University annually reviews and set fees for students in fee paying places (both Domestic and International). Commencing from 2018 new admitted students at Southern Cross University will be charged at the commencing fee rate, which is determined by the Fee Setting Committee, using relevant market analysis and benchmarking. Continuing students, admitted prior to 2018, will be charged at the continuing fee rate.
The Commencing and Continuing fee rates do not apply to students admitted into a Commonwealth Supported Place. Each year the Commonwealth Government sets the maximum tuition fee (student contribution amount) that can be charged to a student in a Commonwealth Supported Place.
Internal course transfers
Fee-paying students that elect to change courses via an internal course transfer will be charged the new commencing fee-paying rate for that particular year.
Commencing a new course
Fee-paying students who complete a course and then choose to apply for another course at Southern Cross University will be charged the new commencing fee rate for that particular year.
Withdrawing from a course
If a fee-paying student withdraws from their course, their existing continuing fee rate will end and will not be re-instated upon return to study. If the student recommences study, they will be charged the commencing fee paying rate for the year of admission. This also applies to any student whereby their enrolment has been cancelled or withdrawn by the University.
Fee-paying students that are required by the University to transition into a different course due to course structure changes will be charged at the continuing student fee rate for that particular year.
