In some circumstances it is not possible to make payment in full upfront. In these instances we may offer payment plans through Centrepay (for Health Care Card holders) or Debit Success. Centrepay does not incur any fees and allows students to pay for their studies from their existing Centrelink benefit. Debit Success allows students to pay for their studies through payments directly from their bank account, or debit/credit card. Debit Success plans will incur a $10 set up fee, and 4.6% administration fee (calculated based on the total fees included in the payment plan).
All payment plans require a 20% deposit upfront, and can cover payment of your tuition and general service fee however your bookshop materials cannot be included in the plan.
VET FEE HELP is a fee assistance program available to both full time and part time students undertaking Diploma or Advanced Diploma courses.

If you receive a financial benefit from Centrelink you may have the option of deducting your tuition, general service and material fees directly from your Centrelink benefit, through Centrepay.
Repayments of fees through Centrepay require you to pay a minimum amount at enrolment with fortnightly instalments to cover the outstanding amount by 15th November in the enrolment year or prior to the course completion, whichever is earlier.
Before your enrolment can be processed and enrolment fees invoiced to a third party (eg. WorkCover, Employer or Agency) an Authority to Invoice (ATI) Form needs to be completed and signed by the third party. This form must be supplied with your enrolment form to a Customer Service Centre for the enrolment to processed. This form is available from the Customer Service Centres at all campuses.
