Encumbrance and fee for late payment

Why did I get a late payment fee and encumbrance?

If full payment of your tuition fee or SSAF account was not received by the due date you will have received a late payment fee and/or encumbrance. The due date for payment is listed on your electronic Statement of Account (eSoA) for each unit, which can be viewed on studentConnect under the Finance section.

An encumbrance will prevent you from:

  • Obtaining any documentation from Student Administration
  • Viewing results
  • Re-enrolling
  • Receiving a new Confirmation of Enrolment (CoE)
  • Graduating

Domestic tuition fees:
If your fees remain unpaid beyond the census date for the relevant teaching period, and if deferral through the taxation system is not an option for you, you will have your unit(s) enrolment cancelled. Once cancelled the enrolment cannot be reinstated in that teaching period.

International tuition fees:
If your fees remain unpaid beyond the census date for the relevant teaching period, your unit(s) enrolment and CoE may be cancelled. This may impact on your visa, and we advise that you discuss the possible impact with the Department of Home Affairs.
