More about fees and other costs
Through the Victorian Training Guarantee, eligible vocational education students can apply for a Government subsidised place.
For students enrolled in a Government subsidised place, this training is delivered with Victorian and Commonwealth Government funding.
You may be entitled to apply for a fee concession or exemption if you are in a Victorian Government subsidised place and you meet the eligibility criteria.
If your application for a fee concession is successful, you will be charged a concession rate equivalent to 20% of the tuition fee payable by non-concession students in a government subsidised place for your program.
You will also be charged a lower rate on your Student services and amenities fee.
The eligibility criteria are set by the Victorian Government and assessed by RMIT in accordance with government directives, which are subject to change at any time.
In general, you are eligible if you have a valid concession card such as a Commonwealth Health Care Card. You must hold a valid card at the time you apply for a fee concession.
See Fee concession and exemption for more detail and to assess your eligibility.
RMIT offers vocational education places on a full-fee basis for students who are not eligible for a government subsidised place.
A vocational education full-fee place is a place at RMIT that receives no financial contribution from the Victorian Government. The fees cover the full tuition cost of a program.
In addition to tuition fees, you will be charged an annual student services and amenities fee (SSAF), which is used to maintain and enhance services and amenities that improve your experience as an RMIT student.
The SSAF is calculated based on your enrolment load and the maximum fee for 2017 is $294.
For more information about calculating your actual SSAF see Paying SSAF.
If your application for a fee concession is approved, you will be charged 20% of the standard government subsidised tuition fee for your program. You will also be charged a lower rate on your student services and amenities fee (SSAF).

- Student services and amenities fee (SSAF) in each calendar year.
- Overseas Student Health Cover (OSHC) - Student visa holders must have cover for the total duration of their visa.
