2018 Start Anytime Dates

Start Anytime offers you the ability to complete it online at your own pace.

While you can enrol in these units at any time, there are some dates relevant to paying fees or incurring FEE-HELP.

To see which units are offered through Start Anytime and how it works, visit the Start Anytime website.

Paying fees

When you enrol, you'll receive an email to generate an invoice through StudentConnect. Remember that your fees for Start Anytime may not be due at the same time as fees for any other units you are studying.

If you are eligible and have already completed a FEE-HELP form (for the course you are completing these units within), your fees for the Start Anytime unit will defer to FEE-HELP at the census date.

If you elect to pay your fees up-front, you will need pay your fees by the date shown on your invoice.

Census dates

Census dates still apply to the Start Anytime program, and your fees need to be settled by the census date.

When you enrol, we'll let you know which date applies to you.
