Chapter 5 - Administration  

PART 5-2 - ADMINISTRATIVE REQUIREMENTS ON HIGHER EDUCATION PROVIDERS  

Division 169 - Administrative requirements on higher education providers  

SECTION 169-25   Determining census dates and EFTSL values  

169-25(1)  


A higher education provider must, for each unit of study it provides or proposes to provide during a period ascertained in accordance with the Administration Guidelines, determine, for that period:


(a) a particular date to be the *census date for the unit; and


(b) the *EFTSL value for the unit.

Note:

If a higher education provider provides the same unit over different periods, the unit is taken to be a different unit of study in respect of each period. Therefore the provider will have to determine a separate census date, and a separate EFTSL value, in respect of each period.

169-25(2)  


A date determined under paragraph (1)(a) must be determined in accordance with the Administration Guidelines.

169-25(3)  


The provider must publish:


(a) the *census date for the unit by the date ascertained in accordance with, and in the manner specified in, the Administration Guidelines; and


(b) the *EFTSL value for the unit by the date ascertained in accordance with, and in the manner specified in, the Administration Guidelines.

Civil penalty: 60 penalty units.

Variations

169-25(4)  


The provider must not vary the *census date for the unit, or the *EFTSL value for the unit, after publication under subsection (3), unless the provider:


(a) does so:


(i) before the date ascertained in accordance with the Administration Guidelines; and

(ii) in circumstances specified in the Administration Guidelines; or


(b) does so with the written approval of the Minister.

Civil penalty: 60 penalty units.

169-25(5)  


If paragraph (4)(a) applies, the provider must publish the variation by the date ascertained in accordance with, and in the manner specified in, the Administration Guidelines.

169-25(6)  


If paragraph (4)(b) applies, the provider must publish the variation by the date, and in the manner, specified by the Minister in the approval.
