Commonwealth supported students

If you fail to pay your student contribution amount by the census date, the following options will occur:

  • If you are eligible for HECS-HELP and you HAVE provided your Tax File Number (TFN) your student contribution amount will be deferred to your HECS-HELP loan after the census date
  • If you are eligible for HECS-HELP but HAVE NOT provided your Tax File Number (TFN) your enrolment will be cancelled
  • If you are NOT eligible for HECS-HELP then your enrolment will be cancelled

Fee paying postgraduate students

If you fail to pay your tuition fees or submit a form requesting FEE-HELP assistance (for eligible students) by the census date you will be placed in Bad Financial Standing (BFS).

The effects of BFS include preventing you from graduating, re-enrolling, or obtaining your results or an academic transcript. BFS will not be removed until all overdue fees and charges are paid in full.
