Billings & Payments:
Tuition fee statements are mailed out before the start of each term. Payment can be made via Bpay direct from a bank account, over the phone via credit card, in person using a debit or credit card or cash or cheque, by Australia Post using cheques or remittance advice giving credit card details. To further facilitate payment a standing authority for St Pius X College Chatswood to charge credit card may be completed which will allow the College to effect payment on the due dates. The College currently does not impose a surcharge on payment via credit card. Credit cards accepted: Visa & MasterCard. All fees for Years 5 – 11 are payable by four installments each year. Year 12 fees are payable by three installments. Payment is due at the start of term. A late fee payment penalty of $50 applies if payment is not received by the due date. If the account balance has not been cleared by the end of a term a second $50 late fee payment penalty will be charged to the account. The College policy is to pursue all fees outstanding, including any costs incurred in the debt recovery process.
When more than one son is attending St Pius X, the following discounts apply to the tuition fee component only:
2nd son – 10%; 3rd son - 25%, 4th son - 50%.
One term’s notice, in writing, must be given for withdrawal of a student. In the absence of such notice the equivalent of a full term’s fees plus 10% GST will apply.
The College assumes that you appreciate the importance of the payment of school fees. The College is not in a position to offer discounts other than sibling discounts (see Schedule of Fees for details). Our fee structure for such a large and well resourced College is quite low by the standards of most Catholic and Independent schools.
It is a condition of enrolment that all financial obligations are honoured.
