Student contribution bands and amounts

Student contribution bands and amounts

Undergraduate student contribution bands

If you are a Commonwealth supported student you will be charged the 2017 student contribution amount for your 2017 unit enrolments according to the subject area of the unit.

  • The subject area of the unit determines which Band is allocated to the unit - Band 1, Band 2 or Band 3.
  • Exchange Units are in the same band as their Macquarie counterpart.

The Credit Point Value, Student Contribution Band of your unit and the Annual Load of your course determine the amount you will be charged.
