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

Please confirm your eligibility status by entering your National Student Number (NSN) on the Fees Free homepage.

If your eligibility status is ‘yes’ and you are enrolled in eligible study or training, your fees will be paid directly to your tertiary education organisation (TEO) by the Tertiary Education Commission. Your TEO will already know and you will be able to receive a refund for any fees you have already paid towards eligible study or training in that calendar year.

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 has been processed we will advise you of your eligibility status.
