Travel Conveyance Allowance


Students attending St Francis Xavier College (Beaconsfield or Officer Campus) may be eligible for financial support through the Conveyance Allowance Program to assist with the cost of transport.

The conveyance allowance is available to students travelling by:

  • Public transport
  • Private car
  • Private bus (retained by the College)


To be eligible for the Conveyance Allowance, students must:

  1. Attend their nearest government or non-government school/campus appropriate to their year level at which admission is permissible
  2. Be enrolled at a school/campus outside Melbourne’s metropolitan conveyance boundary (Beaconsfield or Officer Campus Only)
  3. Reside 4.8km or more by the shortest practicable route from that school/campus attended


For 2019, please note:

  • Public transport applications must include proof of purchase of a half-yearly or yearly Victorian Student Pass
  • Applicants who were previously declined should re-apply only if they have changed their home address


For Private Car and Public Transport travel, the College will allocate the full amount received from The Department of Education and Training (DET) against the family School Fee Account.

For Private Bus travel, families must submit a Conveyance Allowance application at the time of completing the Private Bus Travel Contract.

The College will use Conveyance Allowance funds received from the DET to reduce the cost of the Private Bus Service for the College and for families. All eligible student travellers must apply for the Conveyance Allowance and authorise the College to retain the allowance. This assists the College to continue to subsidise the cost of the Private Bus Service.


Application forms can be submitted to Student Services or via email at

All claims must be submitted during the current calendar year. Late claims cannot be accepted after the Term 4 closing date.
