Fees payable under the Office of Tasmanian Assessment, Standards and Certification Act 2003 (as per S72 and S11) are, in the most part, itemised through Schedule 1 of the Office of Tasmanian Assessment, Standards and Certification (Fees) Regulations 2013. The value of the fee unit (as determined by the Department of Treasury and Finance) is updated each 1 July.

Each year TASC collects from schools a fee for each full-fee paying international student (500 Visa) enrolled in one or more TASC senior secondary courses.

TASC has the power to charge fees in relation to services provided for international students, under S11(d) the Office of Tasmanian Assessment, Standards and Certification Act 2003.

The fee is payable for a student who has participated in one or more TASC accredited course, including courses that are not externally assessed (or completed) and is enrolled on 1 September.

Data identifying full-fee paying students from overseas registered to Tasmanian schools/colleges, is sourced from the Provider Registration and International Student Management System (PRISMS).

The fee for 2019 is $402.75, exclusive of GST, for each student.

For overseas centres there is a fee of $200.00 (Inc.GST) per centre and for interstate centres a fee of $100.00 (Inc.GST) per centre. Plus supervision fees, if applicable.
