COMPULSORY STUDENT SERVICES FEE (CSSF)

COMPULSORY STUDENT SERVICES FEE (CSSF)

In New Zealand, tertiary institutions charge a Student Services Levy on domestic students, which is used to fund a range of services supporting students.  The collection and use of this money is governed by a Ministerial Direction.

It is charged to all domestic students and is due at the same time as other fees. (International students pay the Facility Fee instead). Domestic students may borrow the amount against their student loan.

 

FEE AMOUNT

The student services levy for a full-time domestic student is as follows:

2019: $1,100

2020: $1,100

WHAT ARE THE FEES USED FOR?

The levy allows IPU New Zealand to provide services to students.  A breakdown of how IPU New Zealand uses the fees is detailed in each year’s report.

ACCOUNTING FOR FUNDS

IPU New Zealand reports all SSL income and expenditure in its Annual Accounts submitted to Charities Services.

 

CONSULTATION

IPU New Zealand consults with students each year before decisions are made.  Consultation covers the fee amount, types of services offered, who provides the contracted services, and the method for authorising expenditure.

The 2019 fees were set following a series of consultation meetings with students, including the Student Council in October 2017, and an open submission period in November 2017.

2021 CONSULTATION

The 2021 Consultation is now open.  All students are welcome to be involved in the consultation for 2021 fees, either directly or through the Student Council.  

An information session to explain the proposal will be held on 6th November at 11am in the SCR.  Students are encouraged to share feedback and help us know what we can do better.

The submission period runs from 24th October to 22nd November 2019.

Students can comment on the following:

  • Fee amount
  • Types of services to be delivered (see Specified Categories)
  • Procurement of these services
  • Method for authorising expenditure on these services

Anyone unable to attend who would like to comment or who has questions, may email any of the following:

A summary of the information provided to students at the meetings, and the student feedback received, will be available for all students to view here.
