Coding notes

  • Transitional arrangements for pre-2005 students ended on 31 December 2008. These students are reported as having commenced their course of study prior to 1 January 2008 (code 4).
  • Generally only one maximum student contribution indicator applies to all a student’s units of study with the same census date.

However in some circumstances a student may be eligible for different maximum contribution amounts for particular unit/s of study. For example, a student may meet the eligibility requirements for pre-2008 contribution amounts for business/ accounting units (code 4) and a post-2008 status for maths/science units (code 5).

In these cases the student’s units of study are to be reported with the code value that matches the contribution amount they should be charged.

The following codes are only required for revisions or for retrospective reporting of pre-2008 students.

  • 0 - Student contribution has been calculated using the maximum for pre-2005 HECS students who began their course of study before 1 January 1997
  • 1 - Student contribution has been calculated using the maximum for pre-2005 HECS students who began their course of study on or after 1 January 1997 but before 1 January 2005
  • 2 - Student contribution has been calculated using the maximum for students who began their course of study on or after 1 January 2005 but prior to 1 January 2008

OUA is to use a “0” for all students
