What are my student contribution payment options?
If you are an Australian citizen, a New Zealand citizen (who meets the eligibility criteria), or hold an Australian permanent humanitarian visa, you currently have three payment options:
- Pay the full student contribution amounts by the census date.
- Make a partial upfront payment of the student contribution and defer the remainder to a HECS-HELP loan.
- Defer the full student contribution amount to a HECS-HELP loan.
If you hold an Australian permanent resident visa you are required to pay all of your student contribution by the census date.
