For undergraduate and postgraduate students
The commencement fee is a portion of your tuition fee that you need to pay when you accept an offer to study at Macquarie City Campus. The value of the commencement fee is AU$14,500 (excluding OSHC) or as printed on your offer letter. This commencement fee covers your first semester fee; if there are funds left in the student visa account the funds can be carried over to pay for the next subjects.
If your first semester's tuition fees are greater than AU$14,500, you should be prepared to pay the balance of your fees during your enrolment week.
