Fee Remission

The Fees Remission Program provides assistance to families who are experiencing financial difficulties. The College Fees Committee determines all Fee Remissions and all applications are considered in the strictest confidential manner.

The program requires the family to provide detailed information and documentation to demonstrate their financial and personal circumstances in order for the Fees Committee to make a proper and fair assessment of the family’s ability to pay fees.

To capture any change in circumstances, the College requires a new application to be submitted each year. All financial details must be completed in an accurate and detailed manner in order for the application to be processed.

Please contact Suzanne Murphy, Finance Manager on 03 5622 6204 or smurphy@mscw.vic.edu.au for an application form or further information.

 

Change in Family Circumstances

In the event of a separation in the family, the College requires both parents to advise us as soon as practicable. The payment of the tuition fee account does not automatically become the responsibility of one parent as both have signed the student enrolment form agreeing to clause 15: 'recognise that we/I am/are legally and morally, jointly and severally, responsible for meeting all college fees'.

All parties to the enrolment are required to complete an individual form. Details in regard to the division of Tuition Fees must match on both forms.
