Fee concessions may apply to government funded courses or units for eligible students to help reduce the cost of your study and training.
To be eligible for the concession fee, you must be eligible to access subsidised training, as well as meet one of the following criteria:
- hold a valid Health Care Card or Pension Concession Card issued by either Centrelink or the Department of Veteran's Affairs, or
- be named on the card as a partner or dependent of someone holding a valid Concession Card, or
- be of Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander descent.
Applying for a concession fee
To apply for a concession fee you are required to provide evidence (and for this to be validated) at the time of enrolment to support your concession status:
- proof of ID (e.g. birth certificate, student ID with photo, passport, driver's licence)
- A valid Health Care Card or Pension Concession Card issued by either Centrelink or the Department of Veteran's Affairs
- advice from the Department of Education, Training and Employment that Abstudy has been approved
Or you must:
- Self-declare as Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander identity (in some circumstances written evidence may also be required e.g. letter from Elder / Community)
If you don't have the money to pay for your course upfront don't worry. There are payment options available that allow you to pay off your course fees bit by bit while you study.
