All new enrolments to Dromana College (excluding Grade 6 into Year 7 transition) are conducted by the Assistant Principal. A parent interview is required at a mutually arranged appointment time. Student reports and assessment grades are required at the interview to determine the level of entry. School requirements including uniform, books, lockers, code of conduct, courses of study, welfare, parent support etc are discussed with parents and students before enrolment forms are signed. Interviews do not take place without a parent in attendance.
Financial assistance is available for students under 16 years of age whose parents hold a Commonwealth Pensioner Concession Card, Commonwealth Health Care Card or Commonwealth Health Benefits Card. Many parents take advantage of paying for school material charges using the Education Maintenance Allowance. Application forms must be completed at the college and your card must be sighted to establish eligibility. To be eligible for the first instalment a parent must hold a card current on the first day of Term 1. The allowance is payable in two instalments.
