Compulsory Student Services Fee

 

What is CSSF?

CSSF, also referred to as the Student Services Levy, is a fee to help fund key services to assist student success and overall wellbeing while studying at Yoobee College of Creative Innovation.

How much is it?

In 2024, the compulsory student services levy is as follows:

  • On-campus and Blended delivery:

    • $350 (GST inclusive) per student for 80 to 120 credit programmes

    • $175 (GST inclusive) for programmes up to 60 credits

  • On-line delivery:

    • $175 (GST inclusive) per student for 80 to 120 credit programmes

    • $87.50 (GST inclusive) for programmes up to 60 credits

The fee is the same as the 2023 CSSL.

Domestic students have this fee covered under fees-free, or can borrow the amount as part of their student loan.

Setting the 2024 CSSL – Student Consultation

The CSSL is set in consultation with students.

The Compulsory Student Services Fee funds key services to assist student success and enhance the campus experience offered at Yoobee Colleges.

Student Representatives will be asked to feed back on the services currently provided and to determine the CSSL level for 2024 prior to the end of 2023.

Why is this important to me?

As part of the Ministry of Education’s direction, institutions are required to report on how fees are charged and spent. Institutions must involve students, or their representatives, when deciding on the following:

  • Maximum amount students pay

  • Types of services delivered

  • Procurement of these services

  • Method for authorising expenditure on these services.
