Important fee dates

Census Date

The Census Date is the date on which a student's enrolment is taken to be finalised. If you are enrolled after Census Date you will be liable for tuition fees.

Each unit of study in a teaching period at Southern Cross University has a Census Date. View the Census Dates page for more information.

You need to make a payment by Census Date if you are not eligible to defer your fees and you are a compulsory upfront payer.
