Details of Tuition Fee Remission Scheme
Tuition Fee Remission Scheme
Our school established the Tuition Fee Remission Scheme for students coming from families experiencing financial difficulties. Criteria of eligibility for the scheme are set mainly according to the family financial conditions prescribed by the Student Financial Assistance Agency*. The students who come from families receiving the CSSA or receiving financial assistance provided by the student Finance Assistance Agency (SFAA) could apply for school fee remission. Students excluded from the above-mentioned subsidy scheme are also entitled to apply for any school-cased fee remission programmes.
Students/ Parents may obtain application forms from class teachers or directly from school office or「 download it 」from our website.
Forms completed should be handed in to class teachers together with the following documents ：
- Copies of documents showing eligibility for financial assistance issued by the Student Financial Assistance Agency (Eligibility Certificate / “Form R” Application by Scheme) OR
- Copies of documents showing their eligibility for “Comprehensive Social Security Assistance (CSSA) Scheme” issued by the Social Welfare Department
Methods for eligibility assessment
With reference to the information given by the Student Financial Assistance Agency, our school employs “Adjusted Family Income” mechanism as a means test to assess the eligibility of applicants and their assistance level
The “AFI” mechanism is based on the following formula：
Gross annual income of the family
AFI = -------------------------------------------------
Number of family members+ (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.
-----> 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.
-----> 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.

The AFI eligibility benchmarks for various levels of assistance in the 2013 / 14 school year are listed in the table below for your reference.
