You can use the calculator to find out your SCA for units from different bands.

  2. Click the Calculate button
  3. Your study load and SCA will appear. Refer to your commencement year for the correct amount

Example:

  1. Madeline commences a Bachelor of Education in 2015; where she enrols in one education unit and one science unit. Her student contribution amount (SCA) for 2015 is calculated as follows:

    (1 x 0.125 = 0.125 x $6,152 = $769) + (1 x 0.125 = 0.125 x $8,768 = $1,096) = $1,865

  2. Anthony commenced a Bachelor of Education in 2009; this year he enrols in one education unit and one science unit. His student contribution amount (SCA) for 2015 is calculated as follows:

    (1 x 0.125 = 0.125 x $4,923 = $615) + (1 x 0.125 = 0.125 x $8,768 = $1,096) = $1,711
