Families in Financial Difficulties (including School Card eligibility)

The College's fee policy ensures that all students are given the opportunity to succeed by offering:

  • Family Discounts
  • Significant fee remissions for families on low income

Fee Remission for School Card

All families eligible for school card are entitled to a 50% reduction in their Fees (inclusive of family discount).  Forms are available from the Finance Office or online at

All School Card remissions will be applied on fee accounts once approval has been received from the Department for Education. Families are advised that where school card is applicable, the balance payable after school card discount is to be paid either in full prior to 10 March 2023 or via regular direct debit commencing no later than 10 March 2023.

Fee Remission for Families in Financial Difficulties

The College has a Fee Policy that supports families who are experiencing financial difficulties. To assist, you are encouraged to contact the Finance Department to discuss.

Depending on your personal circumstances, the following documents are required to assess your eligibility:

  • Application for Special Financial Consideration
  • Proof of income - ATO Full Taxation Return
  • Centrelink Income Summary Statement
  • Any other income documents e.g. Child Support, Rental Property Income
  • Proof of mortgage/rent repayments

All Fee Remissions need to be applied annually. All discussions and arrangements are in the strictest confidence.

Split Family Accounts

Accounts will not be split unless there is a legal requirement to do so.  Parents are requested to make their own arrangements regarding payment of accounts. It is the legal responsibility of each signatory on the enrolment contract to pay all tuition fees. Dual statements can be arranged for enrolling parents on request.


Students who are absent from school for extended periods of time due to illness, injury or other reasons (e.g. travel or family commitments) are still liable for payment of full fees for the period of their absence.

Withdrawing from Cardijn College Galilee Campus

A notification period of one term is required by the College. Notification must be in writing to the Registrar. Failure to provide the required notice will result in fees being charged for the following term. 

The Principal or Business Manager, at their discretion, may waive the one term notification period. However, your request must be presented in writing.
