Fees & Charges

Billing Information

School fees are calculated for the full school year and are invoiced per term, you will receive an invoice at the start of each term. Payment of your fees can still be made monthly by using our Direct Debit service.

All billing correspondence will be sent home with the eldest child in the family  or sent via email to the nominated email address for the person responsible for paying College fees. If preferred we can mail it to the nominated postal address.  Please inform us if your email or address has changed so you do not miss any correspondence sent to you.

Invoices will be sent at the beginning of each term and a statement of account will be sent during the term in order for you to check your balance and whether all your payments have been allocated.  If you feel a payment is missing please contact the Accounts Department to look into the matter.

Methods of Payment

Payment in Advance – If you would like to pay your fees for the whole year a 5% discount on tuition fees will be applied if paid by 31st March. Please contact the Accounts Department for your total fees for the year.

Our preferred method of payment is Direct Debit. For your convenience, tuition fees can also be paid over the phone using Mastercard or Visa, online via BPAY or in person via cash, cheque, EFTPOS, MasterCard or Visa.

Payment is due no later than 30 days from the date of invoice. The College is dependent upon the timely and full payment of accounts to meet operating costs. Non-payment will be follwed up promptly. When parents face unexpected financial difficulties, it is important that discussions are held with the Accounts Department. If we have not been advised of any financial circumstances, a formal arrangement will be used to recover all outstanding fees including the possible use of debt collectors.

Pay with Automatic Direct Debit

Setting up an Automatic Direct Debit cycle guarantees that your fees will be paid on time every time without a second thought. You can choose a weekly, fortnightly, monthly or quarterly Direct Debit cycle.

Family Assistance

Mackay Christian College Family Assistance is a response to the steady decline in employment opportunities locally. The increase in unemployment has meant that some people who want to give an MCC opportunity for their children have not been able to do so.

The College policy remains that assistance will be given to anyone who needs help with the payment of fees from time to time. No student will be denied a quality Christian education on the basis of finances. Read about our Family Assistance below for more information. The message that Mackay Christian College will help people if they have a financial need is a message we know is well understood inside the College community. We want to get that message out to the rest of Mackay.

If you find yourself in financial difficulty during the year please make an arrangement to speak with a member of the College’s Accounts Department.
