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.
