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.
