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 or by phone, hang up.
- If a friend recommends a fee payment scheme that offers you a discount or extension, don't accept.
- If you receive a phone call asking for your Deakin student ID, hang up.
- If you receive a phone call or email asking you to deposit money into a local bank account, ignore it.
All valid payment options are displayed on your student invoice and listed below. Payments can take up to 5 working days to appear on your student record. Consider this when planning your payments to make sure you meet the invoice due date.
Payment via StudentConnect (preferred)
You can pay your invoice online via StudentConnect. Scroll to the bottom of your invoice and click the 'Pay Now' button. Payment can be made by MasterCard, Visa, PayPal and other options. Allow five (5) working days for your payment to be processed and appear on StudentConnect.
Contact your bank or financial institution to make a 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.

International payments (payments made from overseas)
If you are an international student paying your tuition fees from overseas there are a couple of ways you can pay:
Payments via StudentConnect
You can also pay your fees via StudentConnect using a credit card, Flywire or Paypal.
Flywire payments for International students
Go to Deakin University's Flywire payment page, choose Current Students. Scroll to the bottom of your invoice and click the 'Pay Now' button. Keep a record of your reference number. Allow five (5) working days for your payment to be processed and appear on StudentConnect. You can keep track of your payment by logging into the Flywire payment page.
Western Union for international students
Go to the Western Union website and 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).
You must generate a new Western Union quote every time you make a payment. If you use a previous quote, your payment will not be accepted by Western Union, delaying your payment to Deakin University.
Once you have made your payment you can track its progress on the Western Union Business Solutions website using your payment reference number, beginning with EAU33618. Allow five (5) working days for your payment to be processed and appear on StudentConnect.
For more information about paying by Western Union go to Western Union Business Solutions GlobalPay for Students.
