Payment Options and Methods

xavier-payment-method

Upfront Payment Discounts

The upfront payment discount on tuition will remain at 3% in 2020.

Tuition Discounts

The 5% discount on annual tuition fees for the second or subsequent child is applied to those families who have children concurrently enrolled at the College; that is, are enrolled at the College in the same academic year. It should also be noted that families to whom any other forms of discount (concession through special consideration or the like) to annual tuition fees is in existence would not be eligible for this sibling discount.

Electronic Billing

The College will continue with the electronic billing process that we implemented last year, which we trust has proven a more convenient, cost effective and environmentally responsible means of distribution. Parents who wish to continue to receive a hard copy of their fee statement should email the Finance Department at accounts@xavier.vic.edu.au.

Fee Invoices – Annual Charges

A fee invoice showing annual charges will be provided shortly for the upcoming year. Upon receipt, parents will be required to nominate a payment option, either Upfront payment or via a monthly Direct Debit. Statements will be forwarded quarterly in December, April, July and October, showing all transactions per the period, including extracurricular charges such as music. The aim of issuing the invoices at the beginning of December is to allow time for the implementation of a monthly direct debit facility as the preferred method of payment, as well as to enable those families who wish to take advantage of the 3% upfront tuition fee discount.

Direct Debit Services Agreement

This document outlines our service commitment to you in respect of the Direct Debit Service Agreement (DDSA) arrangements made between Xavier College and you. The Agreement is designed to explain what your obligations are as well as those of the College. Please note that existing DDSAs held will be reinstated annually, therefore there is no need to complete this again, unless updated details are to be provided.

Payment Options

Option 1 - Upfront payment

A discount of 3% will be given on payment of the annual tuition fee if the payment is received by 31 December 2019. Note that the discount applies to tuition fees only, and does not include levies and additional charges which need to be addressed separately and in addition. Payment received after the due date will not be entitled to receive the discount.

OR

Option 2 - Monthly payment via Direct Debit

Monthly payment via a Direct Debit facility will be the preferred method of payment (and noting existing DDSAs held will be re-instated annually). Please read and complete the Direct Debit Service Agreement (DDSA) and return it to the College prior to 31 December 2019. Ten (10) monthly payments are scheduled to be deducted from your nominated account on the 15th of each month from February to November inclusive. The monthly amount is to be determined by the annual tuition fee, Capital Levy and Year Level Levy. All additional extracurricular charges, for example Music and Sport, will be invoiced quarterly and are payable separately, and in addition to the monthly direct debit.

Fee Payment Issues

The College will always communicate with families on the occasion of an issue arising with the payment of an account. The College asks families for the same communication should a matter arise that prevents the timely payment of an account. This communication is directed through Simon Hamilton, the College School Fees Administrator, in the Finance Department.
