Tuition Fee Rate

The Tuition Fee Rate field is required in Victoria for all funded enrolments. The field states the hourly rate charged for each Module, the rate is entered in dollars and reported to SVTS in cents (for example a rate of $1.27 per hour is reported to SVTS as 0127).


The Victorian Tuition Fee Rate field can be entered in two ways, you can use one or both of these methods.
