Invoice due dates

Your invoice lists your tuition fees, any additional charges and the invoice due date. Your fees must be paid by the due date on your invoice.

The invoice due date and the census date may not be the same. The University sets the invoice due date for administrative purposes. The census date is the date when all your enrolment arrangements for a study period must be finalised. It's important to know and understand the census date if you have a HECS-HELP, FEE-HELP or SA-HELP loan.

If you are enrolled in a Commonwealth supported place you must apply for HECS-HELP, if eligible, or pay your fees by the invoice due date. There are no extensions or payment plans available for domestic students.

To find information on viewing and understanding your invoice, view your invoice.

Commonwealth supported students (CSP)

If you are enrolled as a Commonwealth supported student your fees must be paid in full by the invoice due date or, if eligible, you must complete a HECS-HELP form to defer your fees to the Higher Education Loan Program (HELP).

We are not able to offer due date extensions or payment plans to Commonwealth supported students.  If your fees are not paid in full, your enrolment will be at risk.

You can find out the amount of fees you owe or have deferred to HELP (if eligible) for your current study period by generating an invoice through StudentConnect.

There may be other fees or charges which you'll need to pay, which are not covered by HELP.  You should check your invoice on StudentConnect to see if you have any outstanding amounts.

FEE-HELP invoices

When you view your invoice you will see the student status 230 beside each unit. This means you have FEE-HELP.

If you have requested FEE-HELP to defer your tuition fees, this fee will show as 'Student amount owing' on your invoice until shortly after the census date. Any outstanding amount at the census date will be deferred to the Australian Taxation Office (ATO) as a FEE-HELP debt.

You can find out the amount of fees you owe or have deferred to HELP (if eligible) for your current study period by generating an invoice through StudentConnect.

Late payment of fees

If you haven't paid your fees in full by the invoice due date, a warning will be sent to your Deakin email. You should read and action the email immediately as your enrolment is at risk. If your fees remain outstanding your enrolment will be terminated.

If you are enrolled in a Commonwealth supported place you must pay your tuition fees (student contribution), or if eligible, finalise your HELP arrangements by the invoice due date. If your tuition fees (student contribution) remain outstanding at the census date, your enrolment will be immediately terminated and you will lose your place at the University.

If you are an eligible student wanting to use HECS-HELP or FEE-HELP to cover your tuition fees or SA-HELP to cover the Student Services and Amenities Fee, please ensure you complete these forms in StudentConnect, on or before the census date. Forms cannot be applied retrospectively. Forms submitted after the census date will apply to the next enrolled study period. Incomplete forms will not be accepted.
