Know your payment deadlines

You must pay your fees in full by the due date stated on your statement of account (invoice). This will be available via MyVU once your enrolment is processed, and you will be notified via an SMS to your mobile.

If you are unable to pay by the due date, you may be able to access financial support.

If your enrolment is processed after the payment due date, you will receive an overdue statement of account (invoice).

If you miss the payment deadline, a sanction will also be applied to your student record which may prevent you from receiving results, academic transcripts, statement of attainment, graduating & re-enrolling.

What is census date?

Census date is the last day for you to finalise your course enrolment for each relevant study period(s) in one of these ways:

  • deferring your fees via a VET Student Loan (VSL) by completing the electronic Commonwealth Assistance Form (eCAF) that will be sent to your personal email address with a valid Tax File Number (TFN)
  • withdrawing from units or your course to avoid financial liability
  • applying for intermission (leave of absence) to avoid financial liability (if enrolled in a Diploma or above course)
  • making payments towards your tuition fees if you are eligible for a VSL but have chosen to make up front payments.
