10% discount for NZ SCV holders on up front payments

Will the HECS 10% up front payment discount apply to eligible New Zealand citizens SCV holders?

The discount applies if a student is entitled to an amount of HECS-HELP assistance for a unit of study with a higher education provider.

That means, if a New Zealand Special Category Visa holder is eligible for a HELP loan they are also eligible for the HECS-HELP 10% discount.
(Note: this discount will be abolished from 1 January 2017)
