How do I get a Tax File Number (TFN)?Updated 22/10/2020 08.43 AM
You can apply for a Tax File Number (TFN) through the Australian Taxation Office (ATO) or Australia Post. Please be aware that it can take several weeks to obtain a TFN.
If you are applying for a TFN for the purpose of accessing a HELP loan and have not yet received your TFN, you can obtain a 'Certificate of Application for a TFN' from the Australian Taxation Office (ATO), or an Australia Post TFN application summary with the matching barcoded receipt, and submit it to Student Connect by the census date.
Once you have been issued with your TFN by the ATO, you will need to supply your TFN to the University. This will enable your fees to be deferred to your HELP loan. Please complete the Notification of TFN form and submit it to Student Connect.
