FEE REMISSION SCHEME

FEE REMISSION AND BURSARY SCHEME

It is our strong belief that no student should be denied admission to St. Paul’s College due to financial difficulties. There will be a generous fee remission scheme provided by the College to assist families requiring financial help.

(A) SCHOOL FEES

The annual School fee for St. Paul’s College 2020-2021 is $40,400.

 

(B) BASIC CRITERIA FOR FEE REMISSION

Four categories of Fee Remission are available: 100%, 75%, 50% and 25% depending on the Reckoner.

For those eligible families having more than one child attending the Primary Section/Secondary Section of St. Paul’s College, the percentage of fee remission for the additional child (or children) set out above would be increased by 25% (limiting to a maximum of 100%).

If the value of the family’s net assets (excluding the asset value of self-owned or co-owned property for dwelling) exceeds $400,000, 2% of the excess amount will be added to the applicant’s total average monthly adjusted family income.

Applicants receiving Comprehensive Social Security Assistance (CSSA) will be granted full school fee remission.

Applicants receiving financial assistance provided by the Student Financial Assistant Agency (SFAA) can also apply for the Fee Remission. School fee remission will be provided for applicants in the level of assistance not less than that calculated according to the assessment mechanism used by the SFAA.

(C) APPLICATION PROCEDURES

Parents/guardians who wish to benefit from the Fee Remission Scheme must submit the completed application form together with copies of the required documents, not later than a date to be notified.

(F) BURSARY SCHEME

The College also provides bursaries to students receiving school fee remission. Its aim is to assist students by providing financial aid to defray the cost of learning or attending activities organised /approved by the College.

The maximum subsidy for each student is HK$8,000 per academic year. The actual amount of subsidy depends on the level of school fee remission approved and would be released by two instalments. The details are as follows:

Level of Fee Remission Amount of subsidy per academic year (HK$)
FULL 8,000
3/4 6,000
HALF 4,000
1/4 2,000
