How to apply

If you are eligible and would like to apply for FEE-HELP, you will need to:

  • read the FEE-HELP information booklet
  • fill out a Request for FEE-HELP assistance form providing your tax file number (TFN) and submit it before census.

This form would have been provided to you during the online enrolment process. You can also access it at a later time in Sydney Student (go to 'My finance', 'Your finances', then 'Government forms').

Providing your tax file number (TFN)

If you’re a Commonwealth supported student eligible for FEE-HELP and have not provided a TFN or paid your student contributions up front before census, your enrolment will be cancelled.

If you don’t have a TFN at the time of filling out your form, before census you will need to:

  1. Apply for a TFN if you don’t already have one.
  2. Provide your TFN or Certificate of application for a TFN from the Australian Taxation Office (ATO) via email:
