Compulsory Student Service Fee ( CSSF)

What is Compulsory Student Service Fee (CSSF)?

CSSF is a fee which helps support and fund the services and initiatives that enable a richer and more enhanced educational experience for students at AGI. 

How much is the CSSF fee for a student enrolled at AGI?

$500 is charged as CSSF for each enrolled Equivalent Full-Time student (EFTS). This is included in the programme fee paid by students. 

Decision Making Process and Consultation to determine CSSF

At AGI, regular meetings are conducted with students to better understand their needs and areas of attention.  The CSSF component is determined based on the services to be delivered and after consultation with students through  student representative meetings,  feedback and suggestions from students to the student welfare officer, students surveys

The CSSF fee is used only for initiatives and services that are applicable to be classified under CSSF and based on students feedback and suggestions. 

Services Delivered :

  • Career counselling, employment preparation workshops and First Aid training (non-curriculum related)
    We believe that tertiary education should lead to relevant employment outcomes and in keeping with this, we endeavour to get our students job ready by conducting CV writing workshops, interview technique workshops, career counselling sessions etc. We also aim to enhance a student’s academic experience and increase their employability in the Healthcare sector, to attain that we enable students with the opportunity to participate and gain a first aid certificate.

  • Recreational – Social events, picnics and shared lunches
    Non-academic activities are also essential for all round growth and development of students and hence events such as shared lunches, picnics, graduation day are organized regularly. These are thoroughly enjoyed by students and is always endorsed by students to be maintained as ongoing initiatives.
