Fee payment scams

Scammers are still actively targeting international university students. These scams are designed to take your money in a dishonest way leaving your university fees unpaid. If anyone offers you a discount or an extension on your university fees by email, delete it. If a friend recommends a fee payment scheme that offers you a discount or extension, don't accept. All valid payment options are displayed on your student invoice. Only use one of the methods listed below.


Contact your bank or financial institution to make this payment from your cheque, savings, debit, credit card or transaction account.

BPAY reference details can be found on the print friendly version of your online invoice available on StudentConnect.

Allow five (5) working days for your payment to be processed to your Deakin fees account.

Payment via StudentConnect

You can pay your invoice online by scrolling to the bottom of your invoice and clicking the 'Pay Now' button.

Payment in person

You can pay your invoice at Student Central on campus by MasterCard, Visa or EFTPOS debit card. Please note, cash is not accepted on any Deakin campus.

Western Union

If you are an International student making payment from overseas, the easiest way to pay your fees is through Western Union.

Select Deakin University (not Deakin College), choose the fee you are paying (usually option '02 Tuition Fee' for continuing students) and enter the amount shown on your online invoice (available from StudentConnect).

Once you have made your payment you can track its progress on the Western Union Business Solutions website using your payment reference number.

Fees paid by employers or sponsors

If a third party has agreed to pay fees on your behalf (eg an employer or sponsor), you can make arrangements for them to be invoiced directly for your fees.

The sponsor must meet the due date deadlines specified on their invoice, otherwise you may not be able to access your assessment results, make any variation to your enrolment or apply to graduate.

For more information, visit the Fees paid by employers or sponsors website.
