What do I do if I’m eligible for Fees Free but I’ve already enrolled in study or training?

If you are eligible for Fees Free and your eligibility status is ‘yes,’ you don’t need to do anything. Your tertiary education organisation (TEO) will already know.

If you meet the eligibility criteria for Fees Free and your eligibility status is showing as ‘maybe,’ you need to complete and submit a statutory declaration. Once your statutory declaration form has been processed you will be recognised as eligible for Fees Free.

Your TEO will be told and you will be able to receive a refund for any fees you paid towards eligible study or training in that calendar year.

To access a statutory declaration form, or to check your eligibility status, please go to the Fees Free homepage and enter your National Student Number (NSN).
