Commonwealth Support and HECS-HELP

If your Fee Type is listed as Student Contribution, you have been offered a Commonwealth Supported Place. This means the Australian Government supports your enrolment by subsidising your tuition fee. You MUST complete a Commonwealth Assistance Form before the Census date this term to secure your Commonwealth Supported Place. If you do not do so, your enrolment will be cancelled.

As a Commonwealth Supported student, you will be required to complete an online Commonwealth Assistance Form. All students who are offered a Commonwealth Supported Place are required to complete this form, even if they do not intend to or are not eligible to defer their Student Contribution.

An electronic Commonwealth Assistance Form is available in MyCentre. For help with completing this form, please visit the Submit a Request for Commonwealth Support and HECS-HELP Form instruction sheet.

Before completing this form, please have your Tax File Number ready to input as the form has a timeout function. You MUST complete this form before the Census date this term, or your enrolment will be cancelled. The Census date can be found in the Plan My Study section of the CQUni Handbook.

Students who do not intend to or are not eligible to defer their Student Contribution must pay their Student Contribution before midnight on the Census date each term. To make a payment online, visit MyCentre at http://mycentre.cqu.edu.au.
