Fee Policies

St Edward’s College does not split fees, all parties who sign the enrolment contract have joint and several liability for the total fees. One invoice is created and emailed to both parties. Separate direct debits can be set up by contacting the College Finance Officer.

Installments

Families will receive an email in early Term 1 that will include a fee invoice and statement. The email will include a link to set up a Direct Debit. Payments can be set up either Weekly (40 weeks), Fortnightly (20 weeks) or Monthly (10 months). Payments can be made via Credit Card or Bank Account Direct Debit. Statements will continue to be provided monthly via email.

There is no discount for paying fees up front.

Financial Hardship

There is a very compassionate process for those parents, who through genuine financial hardship are unable to pay all or part of the College fees. Such cases are considered by the Business Manager, the Principal.Confidentiality is assured and documentation will be required.

Pursuit of Non-Payment of Fees

The College will pursue payment of fees where no arrangement has been made for delayed settlement. This can ultimately mean the use of a debt collection agency or the legal system, where requests by the College for payment of school fees have failed.

Any enquiries regarding financial matters should be directed to the College Finance Officer, Stephanie Cabban via
t. 4321 6419 or email scabban@stedwards.nsw.edu.au

Withdrawal from School

Ten school weeks notice of withdrawal of a student from the College is required. Upon withdrawal, parents remain liable for a weekly pro-rata portion of all fees up to the withdrawal date or a date ten weeks after notice is given whichever is the latest. Notice of withdrawal must be made in writing to the Principal, not to any other member of school staff.

Insurance

The College insures its own property. It does not insure the belongings of any student.

The College takes out 24-hour accident insurance (365 days/year, worldwide) on behalf of all students.

College Scholarships

Through the generosity of various College stakeholders, the College is able to offer one part-scholarship to current Year 10 students and one part-scholarship to current Year 8 students, which will contribute to the costs of schooling for the subsequent two years at St Edward’s.  Applications for these will be accepted for current Year 8 and Year 10 students in Term 4 of each year, for the following year.

Other College scholarships will be determined by the Principal and the Executive and are not open for individual application.

Scholarships open for application:

  • Year 10 students going into Year 11: Catholic Women’s League Scholarship
  • Year 8 students going into Year 9: Judy Skeahan Bequest (St Vincent de Paul – Gosford)
