FEE-HELP application

If you would like to defer the payment of your tuition fees for a course to a FEE-HELP loan, it is your responsibility to complete a Commonwealth Assistance Form. This must be completed on or before the census date of your units. Instructions are available under the Students folder in Documents on this website.

Borrowing limit

For 2017, the FEE‑HELP limit is $100,879.

The FEE‑HELP limit is a lifetime limit and is not reset or ‘topped up’ by any repayments that you make. This means that any amount you borrow under FEE‑HELP will reduce your FEE‑HELP balance until you have reached the FEE‑HELP limit.

Loan fees

There is a loan fee of 25% for FEE‑HELP loans for undergraduate courses of study only. The loan fee does not count towards your FEE‑HELP limit.

How do I repay my FEE-HELP loan?

See the Loan repayment page on the StudyAssist website for information on repaying your loan.
