To be eligible to defer your fees you must complete the following by the Session 1 census date, 18 March 2021:

  • Lodge an approved HECS-HELP form (with tax file number) to defer your tuition fees only if you are in a Commonwealth Supported (CSP) course OR
  • Lodge an approved FEE-HELP form (with tax file number) to defer your tuition fees only if you are in a Domestic Fee Paying course, AND
  • Lodge an approved SA-HELP form to defer your Student Services and Amenities Fee (SSAF) if applicable. The SSAF is a non-academic fee which may be loaded onto your eStudent the day after enrolling in units. To find out if you are liable for this fee refer to the SSAF webpage.

For steps on how to complete the relevant HELP forms via eStudent have a look at our handy guide.
