What is a Commonwealth supported student?
A Commonwealth supported student is required to make a contribution to the cost of their education, with the majority of the cost met by the Commonwealth Government.
Undergraduate programs: The majority of students who are studying undergraduate programs are Commonwealth supported students.
Postgraduate programs: A small number of Commonwealth supported programs are available for domestic postgraduate students. Please refer to Programs and Courses to see if your postgraduate program is Commonwealth supported.
To find out if you are a Commonwealth supported student:
- Log in to myGriffith.
- Select 'My courses' from the menu at the top of the screen.
- Select 'View my fee status' under the 'I want to ...' heading.
- Ensure the trimester shown at the top of the page is correct (you can change trimesters by selecting the 'Change trimester' link).
Your fee status will confirm whether you are a Commonwealth supported student.
If you require further information or believe your fee status is incorrect, please email us via 'Ask Us a question' and include your student ID number.
