Avoiding scams and payment frauds 

Macquarie University does not offer discounted or reduced tuition fees.

Tuition fees are set by the University and discounts are not offered under any circumstances. Don't be fooled by anyone who offers a discounted fee—this is a scam.

Other types of scams include selling items at discounted rates, such as airline tickets or discounted exchange rates.

How to protect yourself from scams 

  • Be responsible for paying your own tuition fees directly to the University
  • Know the approved methods of payment
  • NEVER trust anyone who is claiming that they can offer you discounted fees, including a “friend” or “friend of a friend” or anyone acting as an “agency”.
  • Protect your privacy - don’t give your personal information to another person, including your eStudent password.

For more information on how to protect yourself from scams go to the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission website, SCAMwatch.
