SEDA College NSW has an ongoing commitment to supporting promising young people and is fortunate to be able to offer a limited number of scholarships and bursaries for entry into our Year 11 HSC programs each year. Click here for more information.
We believe that an engaging education should be available to all young people, regardless of their family’s financial circumstances. That’s why we provide means-tested fee reductions to eligible families. If you think that you will have difficulty paying full tuition fees please speak to our Admissions Team to see what options are available to you.
Annual tuition fees are inclusive of all compulsory qualifications to receive your HSC, and some extras. Please refer to the Tuition Fees section for a full list of inclusions.
You will need to pay two deposits of $850 each in October and November before the start of the school year ($1700 total). We charge these deposits to cover the costs that are included in your annual tuition and are incurred by the school prior to the start of the school year, such as student uniforms and laptops.
Yes, the deposits are part of the annual tuition fee of $6100. The balance owing after these deposits have been paid is $4400.
No, you don’t. Some families choose to pay up-front in December to receive a small discount, but the majority of our families pay by payment plan to spread out the cost. Our payment plans begin in January and finish in September, and you can pay weekly, fortnightly or monthly.
Yes, we do. Most of our families choose to pay by payment plan to spread out the cost of their annual tuition. After you have paid your two deposits, you can choose to pay the balance owing up-front in December, or make weekly, fortnightly or monthly payments between January and September.
Our payment plans start in mid-January and finish in late September.
First of all, don’t worry! In addition to our scholarships, we offer means-tested fee reductions. All families who will have difficulty paying full student fees are encouraged to contact the Admissions Team for more information.
It is important to note that the College’s fee reductions are means-tested and not all families will be eligible. All fee reductions are funded by the School.
Our annual tuition covers tuition and all compulsory items. Please refer to the Tuition Fees for all inclusions.
Occasionally, students may be offered ad hoc opportunities or items that come at an additional cost. These items are not compulsory to graduate.
None, if you don’t want to! Occasionally, other optional items are offered to students that fall outside of the annual tuition fee. However, families must agree to the costs in advance to be charged for them.
Examples include: optional qualifications and VET courses, optional excursions, Year 12 jerseys, Year 12 formal tickets and extra tickets to graduation events.
We offer a discount for up-front payment of annual tuition fees and also a sibling discount when two siblings are enrolled at the same time. Details can be found in our Fee Policy.
It depends on exactly when you join us, but normally we will issue a credit note for any terms that you have missed. There are four terms and each term is one-quarter of a year’s full fee.
Generally, yes. Prior to joining us we ask that you pay the equivalent of the two deposits ($1700) that are ordinarily due before the start of the school year. This is to ensure that our up-front costs are covered (eg. uniform allocation and laptop) and that some tuition is paid in advance. Paying this deposit also puts you on track to finish your payment plan at the same time as the rest of your cohort.
That said, we appreciate that not all families will be able to pay the standard deposit in full, so we work flexibly with all late enrolments to arrange your deposit amount and payment plan.
No, we do not accept payment at the end of the year. This is because we have to pay our staff, landlords and other suppliers regularly throughout the year.
No, we do not accept payment quarterly or by term (either up-front or in arrears). You can pay weekly, fortnightly or monthly starting in January and ending in September. We are not able to make exceptions to this policy.
No, we do not accept payment by direct deposit into our bank account. We have a small finance team and do not have the resources to monitor payments initiated by parents. We are not able to make exceptions to this policy.
Our Fee Policy contains all the details you’ll need to understand about our Tuition Fees and payments. When you enrol, you agree to abide by the terms and conditions set out in our Fee Policy.
