Compulsory To-do Items - TPP, UG, CI, Visiting


A number of checklist items will be displayed.

The items relevant to you will be listed and may include one or a combination of the below.

Ensure you read the information about each one displayed in your list to understand your obligations:

Commonwealth Assistance Form (eCAF) - domestic students only 

  • All students offered a Commonwealth Supported Place must complete this form.

  • If you are eligible for HECS-HELP, you request a HECS-HELP loan by completing your eCAF and entering your Tax File Number (TFN) by the Fee due date.

    • How does HECS-HELP work? Once you have successfully completed and submitted your eCAF, and provided your TFN in USC Central, your fees will appear on your student account until the census date of each study period. After the census date, your fees will automatically defer to your HELP loan.
    • You can still make part or full payments towards your fees up until the fee due date of each study period. After census date the remaining amount will defer to your HELP loan. Visit HECS-HELP for more information.
  • If you choose to pay your fees up front, ensure you make payment by the fee due date shown on your invoice.
Understand your financial obligations
Student Services and Amenities Form (eSAF) - domestic students only
  • Australian citizens and Permanent Humanitarian visa holders must complete this form (unless you are a Cross institutional or Visiting student).

  • SA-HELP is an Australian Government loan scheme that assists eligible students to pay for all, or part of, their Student Services and Amenities Fee (SSAF).
    • How does SA-HELP work? If you use SA‑HELP, the amount will be added to your accumulated HELP loan. You can take out a SA‑HELP loan even if you do not take out any other HELP loan.
    • If you use SA-HELP you can make part or full payments by the fee due date and the remainder will defer to your HELP loan. Visit SA-HELP for more information.
