When you receive your Student Financial Statement, it will show your liability status as ‘Deferred through FEE-HELP’, and will include the fee amounts being deferred to the Australian Taxation Office.
Your FEE-HELP balance is the available amount you have left to borrow before you reach the FEE-HELP limit. It is your responsibility to keep track of your balance and notify us when you have reached your limit.
If you would like to make a payment towards your semester tuition fees, this will be deducted from the amount you are borrowing as a FEE-HELP loan.
Any fees remaining after census will be deferred.
If you decide during your study you’d like to change your payment option and you’re eligible for the alternative, you will need to make this change through Sydney Student (go to ‘My finance’, ‘Your finances’, then ‘Government forms’) before the relevant census date.
Any loan that you take through the government’s Higher Education Loan Program (HELP) will contribute towards your accumulated HELP debt.
