I am a Permanent resident in a Commonwealth supported place. Am I eligible for the 10% HECS-HELP discount?

The 10% HECS discount is only available to Commonwealth supported students who are eligible for a HECS-HELP loan. This includes: 
  • Australian citizens
  • Permanent Humanitarian visa holders (or an elgible former Permanent Humanitarian visa holders)
  • New Zealand Special Category visa holders who meet long-term residency requirements.
An Australia Permanent Resident is not eligible for a HECS-HELP loan and therefore not eligible for the 10% HECS discount.
