番茄社区 Fees & Financial Support Eligibility Conditions for Commonwealth Assistance

Eligibility Conditions for Commonwealth Assistance

From 1 January 2024, the Australian Government has advised that the Job Ready Graduates Low Completion rate measure has ceased. It is no longer a requirement to uphold a pass rate of 50% or higher to retain a Commonwealth supported place or defer fees through a HELP loan.

SLE is used to measure the timeframe you could be enrolled in a Commonwealth supported place. This entitlement is 7 years full-time or the part-time equivalent.

The SLE requirement applies to all students in a CSP who are undertaking subjects with a census date from 1 January 2022 onwards (subjects undertaken before this date don't count towards the SLE).

If you run out of SLE, you are no longer eligible to study in a Commonwealth Supported place. If you are in this situation, you can:

  1. be charged tuition fee paying rates and continue to pay for your study using a FEE-HELP loan (if you are eligible and up to the maximum of your HELP balance); or
  2. pay your tuition fees up-front; or
  3. resume studies when you accrue more SLE

You may be eligible for additional SLE. For more information refer to the government .
