Always dreamed of a career that allows you to travel the world?

Vet Fee-Help

Am I eligible for VET FEE‑HELP?

You are eligible for VET FEE‑HELP if you:

  • are an Australian citizen or permanent humanitarian visa holder (resident in Australia for the duration of the unit); AND
  • have not exceeded the FEE‑HELP limit (see below); AND
  • meet course requirements as follows:
    • are a full fee-paying / fee for service student studying a diploma, advanced diploma, graduate certificate or graduate diploma level course at an approved VET FEE‑HELP provider; OR
    • are a student subsidised by a state or territory government (other than the Australian Capital Territory) studying a diploma or advanced diploma course;OR
    • are a student subsidised by the Victorian, South Australian, Queensland, Western Australian and New South Wales Government studying in a specified certificate IV course (nominated courses vary by state) as part of the Certificate IV Trial that concludes in December 2016; AND
    • are enrolled with an approved provider in an eligible unit of study by the census date for that unit.

 

How much can I borrow?

Eligible students can borrow up to the FEE‑HELP limit to pay their tuition fees. The FEE‑HELP limit is the total amount available to eligible students under both the VET FEE‑HELP and FEE‑HELP loan schemes. This means that any amount you borrow under either VET FEE‑HELP or FEE‑HELP will reduce your FEE‑HELP balance (the amount of FEE‑HELP you have left to use) until you have reached the FEE‑HELP limit.

For 2015, the FEE‑HELP limit is $97,728 for most students. For students undertaking medicine, dentistry and veterinary science courses (as defined in the Higher Education Support Act 2003) the FEE‑HELP limit is $122,162.

The FEE‑HELP limit is a lifetime limit and is not reset or ‘topped up’ by any repayments that you make.

Is there a loan fee?

Yes, for some students. A 20% loan fee applies for VET FEE‑HELP loans accessed by full fee paying/fee for service students. The loan fee does not count towards your FEE‑HELP limit.

You will not incur the loan fee if you are a student who is subsidised by a state or territory government.

 

Will previous study or other debts affect my eligibility?

Any previous study you have undertaken, and any other financial debts you may have incurred will not affect your eligibility to access a VET FEE‑HELP loan. As long as you meet the above eligibility criteria and have enough of your FEE‑HELP limit (see above) left to cover your tuition fees, you will be able to access VET FEE‑HELP.

When do I have to repay my HELP debt?

You have to start repaying your HELP debt through the taxation system once your repayment income is above the compulsory repayment threshold, even if you are still studying. The compulsory repayment threshold is adjusted each year. The compulsory repayment threshold for the 2015-16 income year is $54,126.

Repayment income is calculated from the amounts given on your income tax return for:

  • your taxable income;
  • reportable fringe benefits (reported on your payment summary);
  • total net investment loss (which includes net rental loss);
  • reportable super contributions; and
  • exempt foreign employment income amounts.
How much will my repayments be?

The amount you repay each year is a percentage of your repayment income. The percentage increases as your income increases, so the more you earn, the higher your repayment will be. The ATO will calculate your compulsory repayment for the year and include it on your income tax notice of assessment.

2015-2016 repayment rates
