FEE-HELP is the Australian Government loan scheme that will assist eligible full fee paying domestic (Australian) students to pay their tuition fees at an eligible Higher Education Provider.
A FEE-HELP loan can cover all or part of a student's tuition fees. A maximum of A$89,706 in tuition fees may be paid using FEE-HELP over a student's lifetime. There is a 25% loan fee imposed by the Government.
Repayments can be made through the taxation system along with any other HELP loan (e.g. HECS). Compulsory repayments commence once taxable income reaches $47,195. Voluntary repayments can be made at any time. If you make a voluntary repayment of $500 or more you will receive a 5% bonus.

Please note: FEE-HELP is only available for Diploma and Associate Degree programs, for Australian Citizens and Permanent Humanitarian Visa holders.
