The following fees are applicable for all new students

**Education Bond

The Scots College Board of Governors resolved in 2009 that all students new to the College from 2010 would be charged a refundable Bond of $1,000.  This is in addition to the enrolment fee charged by the College.

Why did the Board introduce the Bond?

The Board resolved to implement the Bond to ensure that when students leave the College the risk of unpaid accounts is minimised.

How does the Bond work?

  • The Bond is charged as part of a student's enrolment and notified in the Confirmation of Acceptance letter.
  • The Bonds are held in a special fund by the College.
  • Bonds are to be paid prior to a student commencing at the College.  Any Bonds that have not been paid at that point are charged to the student's College account.
  • Bonds are refunded in full once all accounts are settled after a student's departure from the College

Are the Bonds interest bearing?

Interest is not returned to Bond holders.  Interest received on the Bonds is reinvested in the College.

Fees are reviewed annually by the Scots College Board of Governors. The fees for the next year are available each December.
