How do I check my HELP debt?

Your myGov account will show you how much you owe and any repayments you have made.

If you don't have a myGov account, you can set one up following the instructions on the ATO website or you can call the ATO on 13 28 61.

myUniAssist will show you how much you have borrowed (e.g. how much debt you have incurred).

myUniAssist does not:

  • show you how much you owe,
  • include any debts incurred before 2005, or
  • show any repayments you have made.

You will need your Commonwealth Higher Education Student Support Number (CHESSN) to login to myUniAssist.

A CHESSN is a unique identifying number. It is important that you only have one CHESSN.

You can find this on your Commonwealth Assistance Notice (CAN), given to you by your university or higher education provider.

If you can't find your CAN or CHESSN, ask your provider.
