  • Please note that a $200 late payment fee will be incurred on all payments made after the due date as specified on your Statement of Outstanding Charges.

  • Lodge an approved FEE-HELP application form (with tax file number) to defer your tuition fees only if you are in a Domestic Fee paying place, OR
  • Lodge an approved HECS-HELP application form (with tax file number) to defer your tuition fees only if you are in a Commonwealth Supported place AND
