It is your responsibility to keep track of your HELP debt and be aware of the requirements around paying it back.
After census you will be emailed your CAN, an official statement outlining your unit of study enrolment for that session, student contribution and any HELP debt or loan fee you may have incurred.
You will also be able to access this in Sydney Student (go to ‘My finance’, ‘Your finances’, then ‘CAN statements’).
The CAN includes your Commonwealth Higher Education Student Support Number (CHESSN), your unique identification number. You can use this to log in to myHELPbalance and track any Commonwealth assistance used for your tertiary study.
Find out more about CANs on the Study Assist website.
Once your income reaches a certain level, you are required to start paying back your accumulated HELP debt.
