Resources are available to AISNSW member schools to assist in formulating or reviewing school enrolment processes, including the terms on which students are enrolled and some of the legal issues around enrolments and payment of fees. Resources include:
- Draft Policy and Procedures
- Enrolment Conditions
- Forms and letters
- Guidelines for enrolling students with a disability and guidelines relating to fees in enrolment contracts.
The sample policies and procedures are provided as examples only, and schools are advised to seek their own legal advice before finalising their enrolment related documents.
Use this site in conjunction with the AISNSW Attendance webpage which has links to resources relating to exemption from enrolment and/or attendance, as well as the Attendance Student Destination Unknown notification form for use when a student appears to have left the school.

Enrolment Conditions Update: AISNSW has made amendments to our sample enrolment conditions which are available for member schools. The amendments have been in the light of changes to the Competition and Consumer Act 2010 (Cth) (Act) which will take effect from 9 November 2023.
The ACT Civil & Administrative Tribunal (ACAT) has recently decided that a Schools decision to enforce one terms’ notice for the cessation of an enrolment contract, at the end of the school year was unfair under Australian Consumer Law. See full news item here.
