Fee Remission & Scholarship

Objectives

1. To relieve the financial burden of parents having economic hardship.

2. To award students with outstanding academic and non-academic performance.


 

  Fee Remission  

1. Tuition Fee Remission
Successful applicants, after the family’s income checking has been confirmed, can receive either 100% / 60% / 40% remission. Applicants who are eligible for 60% remission may stop paying tuition fees in January while those who are eligible for 40% remission may stop paying tuition fees in March. Any tuition fee paid by 100% remission applicants can get refund upon further notice. Application of the Fee Remission Scheme occurs every year and the school will process all applications in two stages:

  • Applications submitted within September (first batch): the result will be finalized and announced within October.
  • Applications submitted later than September (second batch): the result will be finalized and announced after all first batch applications procedures are completed.

 

2. Activity Fee Remission Scheme
The new policy has been launched since 2011/12. Eligible students* can apply for the Activities Fee Remission for School activities/ interest classes/ study tours. There is no limitation on the amount of remission per student per year. However, the School has the right to stop the granting of Activities Fee Remission if the Reserve for Fee Remission and Scholarship falls under 50% of the latest annual provision. Furthermore, students must apply for the activities and undergo auditions (if any) under the usual procedures. Eligible students will receive an individual notification.

The Means Test

We use the "Adjusted Family Income" (AFI) mechanism as the means test to assess the eligibility of a family for student financial assistance and its assistance level. The AFI mechanism is based on the following formula:

 

1. Gross annual income of the family includes the annual income of the applicant and his/her spouse; 30% of the annual income of unmarried child / children residing with the family if applicable; and the contribution from relatives / friends if applicable.
2. The members of a family normally refer to the applicant, his/her spouse, unmarried child / children residing with the family and the dependent parent(s) who are supported by the applicant and/or his/her spouse (Please refer to the Guidance Notes on Application for Assessment of Eligibility for definition of “Dependent Parent”).
3. For single-parent families of 2 to 3 members, the ‘plus 1 factor’ in the divisor of the AFI formula will be increased to 2.

 

Level of Assistance

The AFI eligibility benchmarks for various levels of assistance in the 2022 / 23 school year are listed in the table below. Please note that the AFI is not the average monthly income of a family.

* AFI thresholds for full level of assistance for 3-member and 4-member families are $51,523 and $47,402 respectively. For 2-member single-parent families and 3-member single-parent families, they are regarded as 3-member families and 4-member families respectively for determining the AFI thresholds for full level of assistance and calculation of AFI.
