|Field name:||TUITION FEE|
|Element name:||Tuition fee|
|Units:||Numeric, right justified with leading zeros if needed|
The actual tuition fee to be charged in respect of an amount of EFTSU for unit of study being undertaken for a course in which a student is enrolled at the institution, or (where those units for that course are being undertaken in an off‑shore entity) that part of the tuition fee which the institution is to receive from an off‑shore entity.

|00000||Student is in a course fully‑funded by an employer|
|00000||Tuition fee is chargeable but the fee is to be waived.|
|00001 to 99999||For the amount of EFTSU reported, either: |
The fee to be reported is the total fee to be charged in respect of EFTSU being reported in a record. This EFTSU will be in respect of a unit of study, a number of units of study, or a part of a unit of study, not a course.
The fee is NOT "fee per EFTSU", and is not a "fee per course".
For example: A student is enrolled in 4 units of study (A, B, C, D), each with an EFTSU of 0.125. The university has decided to waive the fees to be charged for unit of study A. The amount to be reported for this record to DEST is therefore the amount of fees to be charged for units of study B, C, D. The EFTSU reported will be the EFTSU for units of study A, B, C, D.
Where the EFTSU reported in the record is the aggregate for a number of units of study, the value reported for Element 391 (Tuition fee) will be for the fees aggregated across those units of study.
For PELS, the amount reported is to be the fee charged of the student for the submission, not the amount of the loan that the student has deferred.
For BOTPLS, the amount reported is to be the fee charged of the student for the submission, not the amount of the loan that the student has deferred.
