If you are a domestic Commonwealth Supported HECS-HELP or FEE-HELP student, you may be eligible to apply for a remission of your subject fees because of special circumstances if you:
withdraw from a subject after the census date, or
have not successfully completed the subject requirements
Special circumstances are medical, personal, employment or course related issues. In order to be considered for a remission of debt, your circumstances must have:
Been beyond your control

Made it impossible for you to complete the requirements of your subject
You will require documents to prove your special circumstances.
