I am a Commonwealth Supported Student. How do I pay my fees?Updated 08/06/2022 02.30 PM
If you are an Australian citizen, a New Zealand citizen (who meets the eligibility criteria), or hold an Australian permanent humanitarian visa, or are an eligible former humanitarian visa holder you currently have three payment options:
- Receive a HECS-HELP loan for the full student contribution amount
- Make a full upfront payment of 90% of your student contribution by the census date
- Make a partial upfront payment of the student contribution and receive a HECS-HELP loan for the balance. Payments of $500 or more will attract the 10% HECS-HELP discount
If you hold an Australian permanent resident visa you are required to pay all of your student contribution by the census date.
The Australian Government's Job-ready Graduates Package has introduced new funding regulations that could impact some students. Find out if you may be affected here.
