The amount which has been paid for the unit of study
|Element name:||Amount paid up front|
|Units:||Numeric, right justified, with leading or trailing zeros if needed|
|00000000||No amount has been paid|
|00000001 to 99999999||Amount paid, including cents|
Amounts for exempt students and overseas students need to be reported as 00000000.
Values less than 10000000 must have leading and trailing zeros, NOT spaces. For example, $585 is to be expressed as “00058500” and $585:45 is to be expressed as “00058545”.
If the student is in an Employer reserved place/restricted access place, the amount paid must only be the amount paid by the student. It must not include the employer contribution.
Higher Education Providers only:
A student’s HECS-HELP status is determined by assessing the status of all units of study undertaken, within a given course of study, on a given census date.
HECS-HELP eligible students who have deferred all or part of their student contribution amount for any unit of study, within a course of study, on a particular census date, must be reported as deferred (Element 490 (Student status) code 201) for all units of study undertaken as a HECS-HELP student, in that course of study, on that census date.
Therefore, HECS-HELP eligible students may be reported as deferred for a particular unit of study, within a course of study, even though they have paid 80% of the amount reported at Element 384 (Amount charged).
