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 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.
