From 1 January 2021, the Australian Government is extending the Unique Student Identifier (USI) to higher education. The USI is a single identifier for a student’s education journey. The USI will be introduced gradually, starting with all commencing students from 1 January 2021. By 2023, all tertiary students (including those who started before 2021) will need to have a USI in order to receive their award.
 
If you do not have a USI please apply for one by clicking the link below.
 
Once you have your USI, please return to this form and type it into the field below

You must use this form to accept your enrolment in a subsidised Commonwealth supported place (CSP)
and to apply for a HECS-HELP loan (if you are eligible). A student enrolled in a CSP is called a Commonwealth
supported student.

WHAT IS A CSP AND WHAT IS A HECS-HELP LOAN?
The total cost of a CSP is split into two parts: the Australian Government (Government) pays one
part—this is a subsidy, and you pay the other part—this is called your student contribution amount.
You will either pay your student contributions upfront, or if you are eligible, you can use a HECS-HELP loan.

If you do not pay your student contributions (either upfront or if eligible, with a HECS-HELP loan) by the census
date, then your approved education provider (provider) will cancel your enrolment in the CSP.
 
You must read the HECS-HELP information booklet before continuing. The HECS-HELP booklet and other useful information can be found on the study assist website. The link below will open in a new window.

WHAT IS A FEE-HELP LOAN?
FEE-HELP is an Australian Government loan scheme to help eligible fee-paying students pay their tuition fees. A 25% loan fee will be applied to your FEE-HELP loan if it relates to an undergraduate course, and this loan fee will be included as part of your accumulated HELP debt. This is the form you must use if you are studying through a non-university higher education provider and want to apply for a FEE-HELP loan.

*‘Non-university’ refers to all higher education providers not listed as a Table A or B provider in the Higher Education Support Act 2003 (HESA).
