Step 5 - Organise Finance for Tuition
Log into Student Connect and view current invoice under Finance, this will calculate your fees based on your current enrolment and raise your invoice.
International students are required to pay for their tuition costs at the start of a semester before enrolment.
Please note if you have a partial/full tuition Scholarship or Sponsorship this will NOT be reflected on your invoice until census date, however a fee estimate can be requested if required. Please contact Student Finance to ensure the scholarship/sponsorship details have been received and noted on your file. All this can be done prior to Orientation by email: firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 02 4980 2108.
Pay the tuition fees by the noted due dates on the tuition invoice
Pay later through the tax system – apply for a Higher Education Loan Program (HELP) Loan
A HELP loan allows you to put off paying your student contribution or tuitions fees now and pay them off through the tax system once you are earning over the threshold set by the Government.
These loans are administered by the Australian Government; see Study Assist for all the details on eligibility, loan repayments and more.
- HECS-HELP – for eligible Commonwealth supported students
- FEE-HELP – for eligible fee paying undergraduate and postgraduate students
To apply for one of the above you need to complete an Electronic Commonwealth Assistance Form (ECAF) through Student Connect. To do this you will require your Tax File Number (TFN) or Certificate of Application.
