Course related costs for part time students

Amy made this Official Information request to Ministry of Social Development

Currently waiting for a response from Ministry of Social Development, they must respond promptly and normally no later than (details and exceptions).

From: Amy

Dear Ministry of Social Development,

I'm requesting information as to why most part time students are unable to get the course related costs other students get despite having the same costs (such as technology upgrades, textbooks and going to and from course etc).

I am interested to know if this is an internal StudyLink policy or if it is based in legalisation.

If it is based in Legalisation, where? What Act and clause?

If this is an internal StudyLink policy I would like documentation as to how this decision was created and is now implemented.
Also if this is an internal StudykLink decision I would like details as to how other put out part time students and myself might go about having this revised.

Yours faithfully,

Amy McEwen
