Where such notice is not provided tuition fees for one term are payable.

Health Care Card Discount
Eligible families are able to receive tuition fees discounted to $1735 per student, Information Technology fees reduced to $60 per student and the College Building Levy reduced to $300 per family, per year, through the Catholic Education Office’s Health Care card discount scheme. If eligible you will also receive a further discount of $235 secondary allowance from the State Government. Holders of a Centrelink Family Health Care card, a Centrelink Pensioner Concession card or Department of Veterans’ Affairs Pensioner Concession card (Blue card only) are eligible. Application forms are available at the Accounts Office.
**Note, discounts listed above do not apply to scholarship holders.
Assistance with Fees and Payment by Instalment
The College recognises that a Catholic education should not be withheld because of financial reasons and parents experiencing difficulties should contact the Accounts Office with a view to arranging a confidential discussion with Craig Spence, Director of Finance and Administration.
It is a requirement that parents submit a proposed payment plan in writing for approval stipulating payment method, amount and frequency of payments. It is a requirement that instalment payments cover the fees incurred in any one year.

A discount of $50 per annum applies where one child attends La Salle College and siblings from the same family attend another Catholic primary school in the eastern region. Once a second child attends La Salle College the discount no longer applies.
All applications for enrolment for new students must be accompanied by a $55 (GST inclusive) fee that is non-refundable. This fee covers the cost of processing the application.
An enrolment fee of $200 (GST free) is payable on acceptance of a student to the College. This fee is credited to the family account when the student commences. This fee is non-refundable if a student does not commence at the College.
New Family Enrolment Fee
An enrolment fee of $100 (GST free) applies when the student is the first child of the family to be enrolled at the College. This fee will be included on the first statement emailed to a new family.
The collection of school fees will be actively pursued by the College. This may involve the appointment of an external body to collect fees, where all reasonable attempts by the College have failed. Parents are always encouraged to approach the College if they are in financial difficulty.
Any actions taken to recover fees which are owed to the College would be governed by guidelines specified by the Australian Competition & Consumer Commission (ACCC) and Australian Securities & Investments Commission (ASIC).
