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:

2020: $1,100
2021: $1,100
2022: $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 2022 fees were set following a series of consultation meetings with students, including the Student Council in October 2020, and an open submission period in November 2020.

2022 CONSULTATION

The 2022 consultation has been completed.  The submission period has been closed on 27th November 2020.

Thank you to All students who have attended and were involved in the consultation process for 2022 fees, either directly or through the Student Council.
