This procedure specifies the conditions under which a fee may be waived for dependant students of temporary visa holders, who are enrolled in Queensland Government schools.
The Executive Director, Department of Education and Training International (DETi), has the authority to approve applications for a waiver of international student fees that meet the assessment criteria set out within this policy.
The approval or non-approval of an application for a fee waiver is based on the determining factors outlined in this procedure. It must be applied consistently and with rigour, so that applications are treated individually based on the evidence presented, and the Department is protected against any appeals and complaints.
To determine eligibility for a fee waiver, an applicant is advised to refer to the assessment criteria provided in this procedure. The application form is available online and can be lodged with DETi for processing and consideration.
