Boarding is a non-tuition cost
Boarding is considered a ‘non-tuition fee’.
If you offer boarding to overseas students, include this in the estimated total of non-tuition fees payable on the CRICOS register.
This requirement hasn’t changed from the previous Regulations. But the Education Services for Overseas Students Regulations have been amended.
They now include a definition for classes of tuition and non-tuition fees. These expand on the definition under s. 7 of the Education Services for Overseas Students Act 2000 (Cwlth). This definition makes things clearer and helps you meet your ESOS obligations.
