AIT is an approved provider of FEE HELP courses for all of our higher education diplomas as well bachelors.
What is FEE-HELP?
FEE-HELP is a loan scheme, provided by the government, that assists eligible students in the payment of part of all of their tuition fees.
Over their lifetime, eligible students may borrow up to the FEE-HELP limit. For students applying at AIT, the limit is currently $100,879 (this amount is subject to change). In addition, there is a one-off loan fee of 25%, imposed by the government, for undergraduate courses of study.
The government directly pays AIT the amount of the loan, and students (that is you) pay it back through the Australian taxation system once their annual income reaches the minimum repayment threshold. This amount is subject to change annually, you may view the threshold here. For the 2016-2017 income year the threshold is $54,869.
FEE-HELP loans don’t attract interest but a CPI increase is applied every June 1st for amounts that have been unpaid for 11 months or more.

Am I eligible for FEE-HELP?
You are eligible for FEE-HELP if:
You must also be enrolled in an eligible unit of study by the census date for that unit and must not have exceeded the FEE-HELP limit.
Credit for Prior Learning (previously known as Recognition of Prior Learning)
Credit for Prior Learning (CPL) is where a student's previous work and informal learning experiences are recognised through a formal assessment process.
This results in a student potentially being granted credit for subjects in their course of enrollment. The cost of CPL is $100 application fee (non refundable) and where CPL is granted, the cost of the subject/unit is 30% of the normal tuition fee.
Please speak to Student Services for more information or how to apply for CPL.
