Explanatory notes

  1. When reading student numbers, the data takes into account the coding of students to two or more categories within the report. As a consequence, student totals may be less than the sum of all categories.
  2. The Deferred category includes students who have fully or partially deferred their HECS‑HELP debt. Partial upfront payments may still be made by these students.

  • Deferred
  • Paid Upfront (with discount)
    • E490 = 111, 202
  • Paid Upfront (no discount)
    • E490 = 112, 203
  • Column calculations are based on the following:
    • Number of students is calculated from the count of unique student CHESSNs: E488
    • Total EFTSL: E339 where E337 = 0, 1
    • EFTSL No Work Experience: E339 where E337 = 0
    • EFTSL With Work Experience: E339 where E337 = 1
    • Deferred Amount : E558
    • Amount Paid Upfront: E381
    • Discount is calculated from the Total Amount Charged (E384) minus the Deferred Amount (E558) and minus the Amount Paid Upfront (E381)
    • Total Amount Charged: E384
    • Advance Payment (Deferred Plus Discount) is calculated from the Deferred Amount (E558) + the Discount ((E384) minus the Deferred Amount (E558) and minus the Amount Paid Upfront (E381))
