"When will my scholarship be paid?" is the most commonly asked question.
Your eligibility to receive your scholarship payment needs to be checked. These checks occur after census date when your enrolment for the trimester (semester) is confirmed.
Scholarships are generally paid in two instalments - Trimester 1 and 2, unless stated otherwise in your Letter of Offer. These payments are made progressively within the 4 weeks following census date.
If your scholarship was offered on the grounds of financial hardship we are required to re-confirm your circumstances prior to payment.
Financial hardship can be confirmed in any of the following ways:
Deakin University Scholarship Office is registered with the Centrelink eConfirmation Service. If you receive a Centrelink benefit and wish to authorise the Scholarships Office to automatically check your benefit status prior to each scholarship payment please complete the Centrelink Authority Form (49 KB) and return it to us at the Scholarships Office. If you choose this option, the check will occur automatically so you will not be required to forward a certified copy of your latest statement to us.
If your scholarship is for part or all of your student contributions, payment will be applied directly to your fee account after census date when your enrolment for the trimester (semester) is confirmed.
Normally scholarships are not applied to a student's fee account until we receive confirmation of the student's enrolment and the number of units being studied. This can only be done after census date when your enrolment for the trimester (semester) is confirmed.
An on-line invoice will be generated detailing the full cost of your course. Provided you meet the eligibility criteria of your scholarship you can deduct the anticipated scholarship payment from the invoiced cost to determine the amount you will be required to pay.
If you believe that you will not meet the eligibility criteria of your scholarship or your circumstances have changed please contact the Scholarships Office immediately.
Payments for Trimester 1 2013 are scheduled to occur after Trimester 1 census date (31 March 2013).
