Change to International Student NCEA and New Zealand Scholarship fee payment process

NZQA will no longer accept fee payments directly from international students

From 2020 on, schools are solely responsible for payment of NCEA and/or New Zealand Scholarship fees to NZQA for their international students. NZQA will no longer accept fee payments directly from international students.

The relevant fees are set out in the Fee Schedule.

Schools should ensure they put in place a process to manage the collection of the relevant fees from any international student.

After 1 September 2020, NZQA will invoice the school to cover the relevant fees for all international students entered in assessment standards, including New Zealand Scholarship.

Schools are advised to check that the entry data they provide to NZQA accurately reflects the NCEA assessment programme for their international students.

Schools must pay the invoice by the published Key Date (which is 31 October in 2020). NZQA will advise further details of the payment process to schools in term 3.
Results or qualifications for an international student will not be withheld because of late fee payment by a school.
