What do I do if I’m eligible for Fees Free but have already paid fees to my provider?

If you pay fees for courses, but later find out that you’re eligible for Fees Free, you need to ask your provider for a refund. You’re entitled to a refund of the amount you’ve paid up to the value of $12,000.

If you got a ‘maybe’ result when you checked your eligibility (and you meet the eligibility criteria), you need to submit a statutory declaration to access Fees Free.

Providers have been informed of your right to a refund.
