NOTE: VET Student Loans commenced on 1 January 2017, replacing the VET FEE-HELP scheme, which ceased for new students on 31 December 2016.
If you have accessed a VET FEE-HELP loan prior to 31 December 2016 (i.e. you had at least one census date for your course that occurred on or before 31 December 2016), and will be continuing your studies after 1 January 2017, you will not be automatically transferred to the new VET Student Loans program. You will need to ‘opt-in’ to keep access to VET FEE-HELP loan for your course.
For information about VET FEE-HELP, including how to opt-in to VET FEE-HELP in 2017 and what to do if your VET FEE-HELP provider closes down, or if you have general VET FEE-HELP complaints and enquiries, please visit: www.education.gov.au/vet-fee-help-students.
