Government Student Loans

Students are eligible for a VET Student Loan if they:

- Are enrolled in a VET Student Loans approved course offered by a VET Student Loans provider.

- Meet citizenship/residency requirements.

- Have an available HELP balance of more than $0 (that is, have sufficient HELP balance remaining).

- Meet student entry requirements.

The first Census Date is the date by which you will need to submit your application for FEE-HELP or VET Student Loan. This is the date by which you can also withdraw from a Unit of Study without penalty or incurring any fees or a FEE-HELP or VET Student Loan debt. All vocational courses offered by AIT and its partners generally have 3 study periods and census dates.

If you are aged under 18 at the time of applying for a VET Student Loan you must complete the Parental Consent Form and submit to AIT before we can provide you with an eCAF (Student loan Application form).

VET Student Loans is a Government loan program that helps students pay for their tuition fees up to a set amount (known as a loan cap). As the difference between the loan cap and course price varies by study mode, please speak to your Course & Careers Adviser about what this means for you.

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. From 1 July 2022 to 30 June 2023 the threshold at which you begin to pay back your loan is $48,361.

Eligible students can apply for a loan to pay for their fees up to capped amounts through the Commonwealth Government’s VET Student Loans scheme. The loan applies to eligible courses at the Diploma level or above. Academy of Information Technology is an approved VET Student Loans provider. For more information, read the VET Student Loan Booklet.

For students utilising either of the Commonwealth governments student loan schemes (FEE-HELP or VET Student Loan) information provided as part of the application process will upon submission automatically be copied to Services Australia.

Commonwealth supported places (CSP) are available for some undergraduate certificates offered at AIT. CSP provides funding to the provider toward the cost of tuition. Students are liable for the component not covered by CSP. For eligible students FEE-HELP may be used to cover this cost.

AIT is an approved provider of FEE HELP & VET Student Loan courses for Higher Education Diplomas and Bachelors & VET Diplomas and Advanced Diplomas.

Students are advised that in accordance with government reporting requirements students details in relation to the loan will automatically be reported to Services Australia.
