The Compulsory Student Services Fee is a fee that will be charged to domestic students enrolled at TPP in 2018.

This fee will be included in your invoice.

$100 per year for a student enrolled in a full year programme at the Greymouth campus.

Students enrolled in less than full-time study are charged on a pro-rata basis.

Some student groups are exempt from paying the fee.

Why are the fees higher at some campuses?

The different fees reflect the services that we are able to offer due to the location of the campus.
