How do I apply for government assistance to pay for my tuition fees (HECS-HELP/FEE-HELP)?


An invitation to complete an eCAF will be emailed to you shortly after you have accepted your offer. 

To complete the eCAF application, you must have a Tax File Number (TFN), if not, you must apply for one immediately as it can take up to 30 days. Once you have applied, you will receive a Certificate of Application for your TFN and a receipt docket from Australia Post. Please send a copy of these to as proof of your application. 

Note:  Do not wait for your TFN before completing your eCAF.

For further information regarding eligibility, Government assistance and loan schemes go to the Study Assist webpage linked below.  

For questions specifically relating to your application, please email the Student Fees Office at
