Paying your fees

Whether you’re a domestic or international student, you will need to make your fee payment by the due date on your financial statement.

How to pay


Check your financial statement

Once your enrolment is complete, you can see your actual incurred fees by teaching period by logging in to Sydney Student and viewing your financial statement. Go to 'My finance', then 'You finances' and select 'View financial statement'.

The statement lists each unit of study that you're enrolled in for that payment period and includes its associated:

  • tuition fee amount
  • equivalent full-time student load (EFTSL)
  • due date for payment
  • census date.

Know your due dates

You can see your personal fee due dates on your financial statement in Sydney Student.

You’ll need to make sure your fees are paid by the relevant due date. If you miss the due date, you will risk late payment penalties and/or cancellation of your enrolment.

You can see the full list of fee due dates on the study dates page.

We will also send email reminders when fees are due, so make sure you’re checking your University student email account.


Choose your payment method

To pay your fees, log in to Sydney Student and under the ‘My finance’ tab, select ‘Your finances’ and then ‘Payment methods’. Select your preferred payment method and follow the prompts.
