Fees

The costs involved with Non-award study in 2016:

1) An application fee of $75, which must be paid when the application is lodged at the University; if an application is lodged within the late period, a $200 late fee along with the application fee ($75) also applies. Both application and late fees are non-refundable;

2) Tuition fees, which are charged by the credit point for the individual units. Most units have a value of 3 or 4 credit points. The tuition fee rate per credit point (pcp) may vary from one Faculty to another. Please see below for the 2016 Non-Award tuition fees.

Payment of tuition fees is a condition of enrolment. Failure to pay fees by the due date will result in a late payment fee of $200 and cancellation in all units which you are currently enrolled. Tuition fees are due on 26 February 2016 for Session 1 enrolments and 29 July 2016 for Session 2 enrolments.

The first time you enrol as a Non-award student, we will send you a tax invoice for your tuition fees with your confirmation of enrolment. For all following sessions, you must login to eStudent to check how much you owe, as no tax invoice will be mailed to you.

There is no provision for deferment of fees, nor for payment by instalments. However, if you experience difficulty in paying your Non-award tuition fees by the due date, please email nonaward@mq.edu.au as soon as possible.
