Financial assistance

Who can apply for financial assistance?

Financial assistance is available to assist with the payment of entry fees for National Secondary Schools qualifications (i.e. NCEA). To be eligible to apply you must be the fee-payer and meet at least one of the following criteria:

  • be currently receiving a Work and Income or Study Link benefit, or have a current Community Services Card (benefit-based applications)
  • are not currently receiving a benefit, or do not have a current Community Services Card, but do have a joint family1 income that would entitle you to receive a Community Services Card (income-based applications)
  • have two or more children who are candidates, irrespective of family income, and the total fees you would have to pay would otherwise be more than the $200 multiple candidate maximum (multiple candidate applications).

You cannot claim financial assistance for international fee-paying students.
