Where can I get more information on FEE-HELP?

View information on FEE-HELP and study assistance from the government or within the FEE-HELP Information Booklet.

Am I eligible for FEE-HELP?

You are eligible for FEE-HELP if you:

  • are studying at an approved FEE-HELP provider such as HETI Higher Education
  • meet the citizenship and residency requirements
  • are enrolled in an eligible unit of study by the census date
  • have not exceeded the FEE-HELP limit

Please see the FEE-HELP Information Booklet for more information.

How do I apply for FEE-HELP?

You can apply for FEE-HELP using an application form which is available from a Student Support Officer. Along with your completed form, you will also need to provide certified proof of residency or citizenship.

When you apply online you are given the option to select FEE-HELP as your preferred payment option.

What is the FEE-HELP application deadline?

The application deadline is 2 weeks prior to the census date. The specific date is included in the academic calendar.

What happens if I withdraw after census?

If you withdraw from a unit after the census date you will still have to pay your tuition fees or FEE-HELP loan (depending on your payment method). This will occur regardless of whether you have submitted assessments or plan to repeat the unit.

If you have experienced some unexpected extenuating circumstances, you may be eligible to apply for special consideration. Please contact a Student Support Officer to discuss your options.
