Remission of Debt

Book an appointment

What is Debt Remission?

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


What are special circumstances?

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 

  • Not made their full impact on you until on, or after, the census date; and 

  • Made it impossible for you to complete the requirements of your subject

You will require documents to prove your special circumstances.
