T TAFEcard All students enrolling in a TAFE NSW college need a TAFEcard – your compulsory student identification card. It has your name, photo and student number on it. You should arrange to get your TAFEcard at the customer service office of your college when you enrol. We encourage you to do this on enrolment, as you will need it for library membership and access to some college facilities. You must carry your TAFEcard at all times when on college premises. You will need it to show as identification to sit your final exams. Your TAFEcard is also used for various applications such as Student Association Membership, travel concessions (with the appropriate foil sticker) and discounts at many business and entertainment venues. Please check at your college. If your TAFEcard is lost or stolen, please report it immediately to the customer service office at your college. Your TAFEcard is valid as long as you are enrolled with TAFE NSW – you do not need a new one each year. It will cost you $20 to replace it – so please treat it with care! You can report any fault with your TAFEcard to the customer service office at your college and if required, a replacement can be organised. If it is defective through no fault of your own, a new TAFEcard will be issued to you at no cost. If faulty due to your own negligence, you will be charged a $20 replacement fee. The transport identifier placed onto your TAFEcard represents a transport concession on government travel. This security foil cannot be transferred to other TAFEcards. Students who damage the transport concession foil and require a replacement may incur a replacement fee. TAFE NSW reserves the right to cancel any of the TAFE NSW services provided by and available to you in connection with your TAFEcard in accordance with TAFE NSW policies and procedures. You must return your TAFEcard to TAFE NSW immediately if requested by TAFE NSW. TAFE NSW Fee Most students need to pay the TAFE NSW fee for their course, unless eligible for an exemption or concession. The NSW Fee depends on the qualification level of the course, not the hours of tuition (except for Temporary Visa Holders). Students enrolled in a WSI Plus program do not pay the TAFE NSW fee but pay a fixed charge for their course. Some high level TAFE NSW courses are eligible for the VET FEE-HELP student loan payment option, see page 5 for more information.
