What is FEE-HELP?
FEE-HELP is a loan scheme that assists eligible fee paying students to pay their tuition fees. You may use FEE-HELP to help pay for all, or part, of your tuition fees. To be eligible for FEE-HELP you must be an Australian citizen or a Permanent Resident on a Humanitarian visa.
Undergraduate fee-paying places
Eligible domestic students can borrow part or all of their tuition fees through FEE-HELP. A loan fee of 25% on the amount borrowed applies to loans for undergraduate studies.
Postgraduate fee-paying places
Eligible domestic students can borrow part or all of their tuition fees through FEE-HELP. No loan fee applies to loans for postgraduate studies.
FEE-HELP loans are repaid through the Australian taxation system. If you are eligible for FEE-HELP assistance and would like to obtain a FEE-HELP loan you must complete and submit an online request for FEE-HELP on studentConnect and provide your tax file number by the census date.
Further FEE-HELP information is available for undergraduates and postgraduates from the Study Assist website.
From 1st January 2016, you may borrow up to $99,389. Exceptions are Medicine, Veterinary Science and Dentistry, for which the FEE-HELP limit is $124,238.
