I am eligible for Fees Free, but withdrew from my study because of COVID-19. How can I get my Fees Free entitlement reinstated?

If you withdrew between 23 March 2020 and 30 June 2020 you do not need to do anything because your fees-free entitlement will be proactively reinstated. However, if you withdrew outside of this timeframe you will need to appeal the use of your fees-free entitlement and provide evidence to the TEC as to how the COVID-19 pandemic affected your ability to complete your course.

Enter your National Student Number (NSN) on the homepage and follow the instructions to submit a COVID-19 Entitlement Appeal.
