My invoice is taking a long time to generate

Please be patient. The application is calculating your fees to give you the most up-to-date fee data. This may take a few minutes, especially in peak periods.

I get a blank screen

Please try again. If you still get the blank screen contact Customer Service.

I get a red cross and the message says 'No data was processed'

Online Invoices may not be available yet. Check the dates on StudentConnect and make sure you are enrolled in the current trimester. You can do this by clicking on 'Course/Unit inquiry' on the sidebar menu. If you believe there is a problem contact Customer Service.

I get the standard internet message 'Page Not Available'

The application may have timed out. Please try again. If it still doesn't work contact Customer Service.

My fees are wrong on my invoice

Make sure you are looking at the current trimester and are enrolled correctly. You can do this by clicking on 'Course/Unit inquiry' on the sidebar menu. If you believe there is a problem contact Customer Service.

I just made a payment but it is not appearing on my invoice

Allow 3-4 working days for payments to be processed. If the payment is not appearing after this time please contact Customer Service.

I just looked at a past invoice and it says I owe money when I don't

The past invoice option gives you a copy of the last invoice generated for the trimester selected. Check the Date of Issue in the top left hand corner and you will see that it is a reprint of a past invoice that you will have already received. If you have paid the amount owing after the "Date of Issue" of the invoice your payment will not be reflected in that invoice. You will know your record is correct if you do not have a balance carried forward on your current invoice.

The due date on my invoice is prior to today's date

This means you have generated an invoice today but have overdue fees. These fees should be paid immediately to avoid your enrolment with the University being encumbered or terminated.

I just looked at a past invoice and it says I am enrolled in a unit and there is a fee for it but I know I withdrew early

The past invoice option gives you a copy of the last invoice generated for the trimester selected. If you check the Date of Issue that is in the top left hand corner it should be a date prior to the date you withdrew from the unit.

Nothing happens when I click on the Print Friendly Version button

  1. Check that you have Adobe Acrobat Reader installed
  2. The PC you are using may have popups blocked in the web browser. Try holding down the control key and then click on the Print Friendly Version button
  3. If this doesn't work call Customer Service.

I don't have any, or only a few past invoices available in the drop down list in the Past Invoice screen

Past invoices are only available where you have actually generated an invoice for a previous trimester. If you can't see a trimester option in the dropdown list and you were enrolled in that trimester it is likely you didn't owe anything at that time. This will be because either you are a deferred HECS student, paid your fees early or had sufficient credit balance to cover your debt. If you still feel there is a problem call Customer Service.

I just withdrew from all my units and now my invoice will not generate. I get the message 'No data was processed for display on Statement of Account'

This is because you do not owe any fees as you have just withdrawn from all your units.

What if I make a change to my enrolment?

Once you have made a change to your enrolment you must go to the 'Fees and Payments' link on the sidebar menu in StudentConnect and select 'Current Invoice'. A new invoice will be generated which reflects the changes (if any) to your fees.

My online invoice generates ok but I get an error message when I try to access the print friendly version

Have you changed your address online recently? It is likely that you have the ampersand character (&) or a quote character (') somewhere in your address. If you remove these you should be able to generate the print friendly version of your invoice. If this is not the case contact Customer Service.

What does it all mean? How do I read the invoice?

Your enrolment details and fee assessment for the current trimester are shown on your invoice. You should always carefully check the details to ensure they are correct. If you are unsure of the terminology used, Tool Tips are also provided - just hover your mouse over the text and a brief explanation will appear. You can also view an interactive demonstration (128 KB) to help you understand your invoice.

All invoices have a due date for payment. It is very important that payment is made by this date to avoid your enrolment being encumbered and/or terminated and subsequent loss of access to critical services such as IT access, DSO, Library, email and StudentConnect.

Your invoice has important information about your enrolment and fee liability. Below is a quick reference guide to help you understand all the details on your invoice.

Date of Issue The date the fees were assessed and the invoice produced
Course The course code and title of the course you are currently enrolled in
Unit Code and Title Current unit enrolment details as at the date of issue
Status Enrolment status of unit at date of issue (e.g. Enrolled, discontinued, unconfirmed)

Student Status Indicates chosen payment method. Want more information on your Student Status?
Credit points The number of points the unit will earn towards your degree if the unit is successfully completed
EFTSL Equivalent Full Time Student Load. Credit points undertaken in a given trimester are calculated as a fraction of the full-time annual load - normally 8 credit points. For example, a unit worth 1 credit point would have an EFTSL of 1 divided by 8 or 0.125.

Fee Type Indicates the type of fee you are liable for
Assessed Amount The combined cost of all units displayed on your invoice
