FEE-HELP Information

If you’re an eligible fee-paying student you can apply for a government loan to help pay part, or all, of your tuition fees. FEE-HELP is only available to Australian nationals.

What is FEE-HELP?

A FEE-HELP loan lets you defer paying your tuition fees. Instead of paying up front, you can repay your loan through the tax system when your income reaches a certain level.

FEE-HELP will help you enrol on a career focused higher-education undergraduate or postgraduate degree, or diploma. At the CSU Study Centres, you are supported throughout your course by excellent staff and facilities, whilst FEE-HELP will offer you peace of mind financially.

Who can apply for FEE-HELP?

To be eligible for FEE-HELP you must:

  • Be an Australian citizen or a holder of an Australian permanent humanitarian visas (who meet eligibility requirements)
  • Be enrolled in a fee-paying postgraduate non-research course
  • NOT be supported by the Commonwealth 
  • Meet the Tax File Number (TFN) requirements
  • NOT have exceeded the FEE-HELP limit
