What does this mean? Common TAFE terms

You may have one or more courses listed in your My Study tile. 

Study Plan is a roadmap for how we will manage your course and the units you study.

In the example (pictured below), the student has a few study plans – but only one they are currently studying.

Your course will have a status to describe your :

Admitted: You are currently studying this course.

Potentially Complete: You are currently studying this course and enrolled into all units – but not everything has a final grade.

Conditionally Complete:  TAFE Queensland needs to finalise administrative tasks before you receive the award/certificate.

Passed: You have finished this course.

Withdrawn: A course you were ‘Admitted’ to or ‘Applied’ for, but no longer studying. 


My study

‘Planned’ units are scheduled in the order of what you will study, and when.

‘Unscheduled’ units are available for you to plan enrolment into a Study Period.

See FAQ What are Study Periods? for more information.

Advanced Standing is the term we use for both Credit Transfer and Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL).

  • Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) identifies and validates the skills you have gained through prior study or previous work experience or volunteer work.

Completed RPL units display as ‘Exempt’.

  • Credit Transfer is a process that gives you credit for components of a qualification based on equivalent study you’ve previously successfully completed.

Completed Credit Transfer units display as ‘Credited’.

Please refer to our website for further information and how to apply.

Fees and payments

Paying online in the portal: When you make a payment in the portal via BPOINT (MasterCard or Visa payments), an automated receipt is sent to your preferred email address

Video: How to view and pay fees (2:03).

In person or over the phone: If you pay over the counter/via phone at a TAFE Queensland campus, we can print or post you a receipt.

Payment Plans: If you are on a Payment Plan, your Account Statement is the receipt.

Request a statement: If you need a record of your payments for tax or other purposes, you can generate a Statement of Account for the last 90 days via the My Study tile. This provides a history of course-specific financial transactions (tuition fees, materials and services fees, and administration fees). This will be sent directly to your preferred email.

Video: How to request a report (1:47).

You can pay any current or outstanding fees by Mastercard or Visa in your portal. 

The bottom of your Statement of Account includes option to pay via:

Video How to view and pay fees (2:03).

View our Payment options explained page on our website for further information.


Our fee allocation process runs overnight (after close of business).

Your payment will be allocated to your fees tonight. If you made a payment late at night (after our overnight process), your payment will allocate the following night.

When making a payment, your web browser displays the BPoint screen. This error appears when:

  • You select the Back button after the BPoint screen loads. Please check your bank account/card to confirm your balance has not changed, then complete the payment process from the start, OR;
  • Antivirus software on your device prevents the BPoint screen from loading. Please enable cookies and try again.

This could due to:

a.     Your legal name (e.g. John Smith) in the portal does not match the name on the concession card (e.g. John J Smith).

Fix: Submit a Change of Name Request form via the Forms tile. See video How to update your legal name and personal details (1:48).

b.     A typo in the CRN and/or Primary Cardholder Name fields.

Fix: Check these details match your card exactly.

c.     A temporary outage between TAFE Queensland and the Centrelink eServices database.

Fix: Contact us on 1300 308 233 to manually validate your concession.

d.     Your concession may not be active in the Department of Human Services or Department of Veterans’ Affairs system.

Fix: Contact us on 1300 308 233 to manually validate your concession. If we cannot validate your concession, contact the relevant department (Department of Human Services or Department of Veterans’ Affairs) to check your concession status.

Factors like due dates for your eCAF (electronic Commonwealth Assistance Form) and study census dates can impact what fees you see in the portal.

Contact us on 1300 308 233 to check your current financial status.
