SCD is an approved higher education provider for FEE-HELP. FEE-HELP is a loan given to eligible fee-paying students to help pay part or all of their tuition fees.
All enrolled students who are Australian citizens (or currently in Australia on Humanitarian Visas) have access to Government loans for both undergraduate and post-graduate study. For 2017, the FEE‑HELP limit is $100,879. The FEE-HELP limit is indexed annually. The loan can be used over the lifetime of the student at all levels of higher education accredited training. The loan can be used for a single subject or a number of subjects, or for a complete award or a number of awards – it is the student’s choice. The repayment of the loan commences once a student’s taxable income exceeds $54,869(for 2016/17 year). A loan fee of 25% applies to FEE-HELP loans for undergraduate courses of study. The FEE-HELP limit does not include the loan fee.
To access FEE-HELP, students need to complete a Request for FEE-HELP Assistance form and submit it to the College before the commencement of a semester. Each student seeking FEE-HELP will be provided with a Commonwealth Higher Education Student Support Number (CHESSN) which is issued by the Government. This number remains with the student for their life time.
