Payment options and assistance

Find out about payment options including instalments, scholarships, concessions, exemptions and government subsidised loans to help pay for your study

Explore payment methods, pay by instalment, scholarships and Commonwealth VET Student  Loans to help you  pay for your course fees.

TAFE NSW courses can be training subsidised by the NSW Government or training provided on a 'fee-for-service'  basis.

A fee applies for most TAFE NSW courses and must be paid when you enrol. The amount you pay depends on the type of course you study, and on your personal circumstances.

TAFE NSW provides a wide range of pay-as-you-go and instalment payment options so that you can get on with your studies and not have to worry about full payment when you enrol. 

Commonwealth Student Loans

A large number of our TAFE NSW vocational and higher education courses are eligible for loans and we have a range of options to help you pay for your course. 

You may be eligible to access a Commonwealth loan under VET Student Loansif you are enrolling in  Diploma, Advanced Diploma or Vocational Graduate Certificate qualifications, or FEE-HELP if you are enrolling in a Higher Education program (Associate or Bachelor degree). Students need to repay the loan when they reach a defined income level ($54,869 per year in the  2016-2017 income year).

You  may also be able to apply for a scholarship or pay in instalments. Some courses also have fee exemptions or concessions depending on your eligibility. 

You can find more detailed information on payment options and assistance in this section or contact us for individual help.

Behind in paying your student fee, the concession fee, or other fees and charges?

If you have outstanding fees, please contact your college or campus to discuss and organise alternate arrangements.

If you have outstanding fees or charges, you will not be provided with documents related to your study such as a transcript of your academic record or testamur, and your access to learning materials will be blocked.

TAFE NSW may also refer your outstanding fees for debt recovery action.
