Amounts for exempt students and overseas students need to be reported as 00000000. For FEE‑HELP undergraduate courses and VET FEE‑HELP courses this must exclude the 20% Loan Fee which is reported separately in E529 (Loan fee)
Values less than 10000000 must have leading and trailing zeros, NOT spaces. For example, $585 is to be expressed as "00058500" and $585:45 is to be expressed as "00058545".
If the student is in an Employer reserved place/restricted access place, the amount charged must only be the amount charged of the student. It must not include the employer contribution amount or loan fee.
Higher Education only
The amount charged for Commonwealth supported students must have zero cents when aggregated to the unit of study.
A student's HECS‑HELP status is determined by assessing the status of all units of study undertaken, within a given course of study, on a given census date.
HECS‑HELP eligible students who have deferred all or part of their student contribution amount for any unit of study, within a course of study, on a particular census date, must be reported as deferred (E490 (Student Status code) 201) for all units of study undertaken as a HECS‑HELP student, in that course of study, on that census date.
Therefore, HECS‑HELP eligible students may be reported as deferred for a particular unit of study, within a course of study, even though they have paid 90% (applied to census dates on or after 1 January 2012) or 80% (applied to census dates prior to 1 January 2012) of the amount reported at E384 (Total amount charged).
SA‑HELP – A student services and amenities fee is not required to be a whole dollar amount.
