**Band 3A student contribution amounts are the University of
South Australia's method of identifying student contribution amounts for
pre-2008 students (as defined in the
Information for Commonwealth
Supported students booklet and below).**

The cost of your education as a **Commonwealth Supported
Student **is shared between what you pay and what the Government pays.
Generally speaking the Commonwealth Government pays part of the cost of
your education and as a student you pay a **Student Contribution**
(formerly known as HECS). Student Contribution amounts are calculated
per **Unit of Study**, which is equivalent to a 'course' at UniSA.
Units of Study/courses are grouped into **Bands** which attract
different Student Contribution amounts.

Your Student Contribution amount for each course is based on the Band
amount (refer above for amount appropriate to you) and the **EFTSL**^{1
}value of the course.

The formula for calculating your contribution amount for this course is:

EFTSL^{1 }value for the course x Band amount

**As an example:**

ECON 3002 has an EFTSL^{1 } value of 0.125^{2 }
and is a Band 3A course. You are enrolling in this course as a new
student from 2008, so you are classified as a 'Student commencing from
2008'.

Therefore the Student Contribution Amount (fee) you will be required
to pay for this course is equal to 0.125 x $9,425, or **$1,178.00**^{3 }

In the 2007 Budget the Australian Government introduced changes to
higher education funding from 2008 as part of the Realising Our
Potential package. These include an increase to the maximum student
contribution amounts for courses of study in **accounting,
administration, economics and commerce**. Student contribution amounts
for these courses are now in the same student contribution band as
courses of study in law, medicine, veterinary science and dentistry.

There are transitional arrangements for students who commenced a study program before 2008 and did not complete it before the end of 2007 ('pre-2008 students').

You are a pre-2008 student if:

- you commenced a study program before 1 January 2008 and were a
Commonwealth supported student in that program;
**and** - you didn't complete the study program before 31 December 2007
(or if you did complete your study program it was an enabling study
program or a study program related to a current honours study
program);
**and** - you are not, in 2008, a pre-2005 student;
**and** - you are undertaking a course of study in accounting, administration, economics or commerce.

The arrangements for pre-2008 students apply until the end of 2012.

If you are a pre-2008 student, the maximum student contribution
amount per EFTSL^{1 }, in 2009, for a course of study in accounting,
administration, economics and commerce is the same as it would be had
the Australian Government not raised the maximum. In 2011, this is
$7,756 (indexed for later years).

1The EFTSL (Equivalent Full Time Student Load) value is a measure of the study load for a course, as a measure of the total required study load for a full year in undertaking your program on a full-time basis.

^{2 }Please note all EFTSL values are published and calculated at ten decimal places. Values are displayed to three decimal places for ease of interpretation.

^{3 }If the amount calculated consists of whole
dollars and a number of cents, the amount will be rounded down to the
nearest whole dollar.
