Additional Information

Amounts for exempt students need to be reported as 0.

The complete amount due to be paid is reported if the student has taken up a payment plan or other payment arrangements with an organisation which allows the student to pay their tuition fees for a unit of study in instalments over a period of time.

If the student is in an employer reserved place/restricted access place, the amount paid must only be the amount paid by the student. It must not include the employer contribution.
