Compulsory Student Services Fee (CSSF)
What is CSSF?
CSSF is a fee to cover and support the provision of various student services. The fee funds key services for students to assist student success and overall well-being whilst studying at Animation College.
How much is it?
In 2019 the compulsory Student Services Fee is $340 (GST inclusive) per full time student (120 credit programme) and $170 for Certificate programmes (60 credits) students.
This applies to students across all colleges registered under the Animation College Edimus number (9324).
Domestic students can borrow the amount as part of their student loan.

As a result of the consultation process, all colleges registered under the Animation College Edimus number (9324)* agreed the CSSF is set at $340 (GST inclusive) per

Setting the 2020 CSSF
Further consultation with students will be carried out this year to set the fee for 2020.
The student council representatives will be asked to feedback on the services currently provided and to determine the CSSF level for 2020.
Why is this important to me?
As part of the Ministry of Education’s direction, institutions are required to report on how these fees are charged and spent. Institutions must include students or their representatives when deciding on the following:
maximumamount that students will pay
- types of services delivered
- procurement of these services
- method for authorising expenditure on these services.
