Congratulations on your offer to study at USC. Follow the steps below to get started with your studies by selecting what you are studying:
Check your fees
As a university student, you will be charged fees for the course/s you study. These fees will vary according to the courses you enrol in and whether you are a Commonwealth supported or fee-paying student, as advised in your letter of offer. Refer to what will I pay? for more information.
If eligible, you can defer payment to a HELP loan/s for your:
- Student contributions (HECS-HELP)
- You request HECS-HELP when completing your electronic Commonwealth Assistance Form (eCAF) and enter your Tax File Number (TFN) in USC Central.
- Student Services and Amenities Fee (SA-HELP)
- You request SA-HELP when completing your electronic Student Services and Amenities Form (eSAF) and enter your Tax File Number (TFN) in USC Central.
All students in a Commonwealth supported place must complete the Commonwealth Assistance Form (eCAF) and the Student Services and Amenities Fees Form (eSAF). Ensure you have completed both and provided your Tax File Number in your To-Do list when you logged in to USC Central.
If you are not eligible for HECS-HELP and/or SA-HELP, you must pay your fees in full by the due date shown on your invoice. Please refer to Study costs to understand your financial obligations.
If you are eligible for HECS-HELP but have not completed your eCAF, or paid your student contribution, or provided your tax file number by the fee due date, your enrolment will be cancelled.
