STUDENT ID CARDS

CHC students need a Student ID Card to borrow from the CHC Library and to be admitted to examination rooms. They may also be used to gain concessions for travel and other purposes.

To generate your Student ID Card, CHC requires a recent headshot. This is to be a clear, front-facing photograph that is similar to a passport photo.

Please send your photo to Student Administration attached to an email to sadmin@chc.edu.au. Alternatively, you may deliver your photo in person to the Student Administration Office.

HELP FORMS

The Commonwealth government’s Higher Education Loans Program (HELP) may be available to you to assist you to pay some or all of your tuition costs at CHC.

Eligibility requirements for HECS-HELP (for students in Commonwealth supported places) and FEE-HELP (for students in fee-paying places) are available on the government’s Study Assist website.

HELP loans are income-contingent loans that are repaid through the Australian taxation system once you earn above the compulsory repayment threshold salary. Information regarding the repayment of HELP loans is available on the government’s Study Assist website.

If you are eligible for a HELP loan, you will receive an email from the Department of Education, Skills and Employment before you begin your course at CHC. This email will contain your passkey to sign into the government’s Electronic Commonwealth Assistance Form (eCAF) website and submit your HELP form. Please note that, if you receive this email, you have already been assessed as eligible for HELP and do not need to do anything else to be approved to receive assistance. You will not receive an email confirming that you have been approved.

For details on HECS-HELP and FEE-HELP, and information on the assistance for which you may be eligible, please visit the Study Assist website.

Further information is available in the relevant HELP publication below:

If you are in a FEE-paying place, you must submit a FEE-HELP form prior to the census date of the first semester in which you wish to defer your fees. For example, you might choose to pay your fees upfront in your first semester of study but want to defer them in your second semester of study, in which case you must submit a FEE-HELP form prior to the census date of your second semester of study. Once you submit a form, it applies to the remainder of your course – that is, you do not have to submit a form for each semester. Please note, however, that FEE-HELP forms cannot be applied retrospectively.

If you are in a Commonwealth supported place, you must submit your HECS-HELP form before the census date of your first semester of study regardless of whether you intend to defer your fees. This is because it is associated with being allocated a Commonwealth supported place. If you do not submit your form by this date, CHC is required by legislation to cancel your enrolment.

UNIQUE STUDENT IDENTIFIER (USI)

Did you know that all higher education students, must have a USI in order to graduate and receive their award after 1 January 2023. This includes all students who started before 2021, and all onshore international students.

The USI team wants to make life easier for you and your students when it comes time to graduate. We are seeking your support to encourage your students, both new and continuing, to create their USI and provide it to you, ready for graduation from 2023.

We have been working with the Tertiary Admissions Centres to ensure new students are able to enter their USI on their university applications. This data will be available to you as part of the information provided by your TAC.  Record it now to be ready for 2023!

We are also here to support you and your students directly. Our team are on hand to help you set up your system to verify and validate USIs, which will become increasingly important as 2023 approaches. If you would like support to do this, please let us know.
