What do I do if I’m eligible for fees-free, but I’ve already enrolled in study or training?

If you’re eligible for fees-free and your eligibility status is ‘yes,’ you don’t need to do anything. You don’t need to apply for fees-free support or tell your tertiary education organisation (TEO), they’ll 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’ll be recognised as eligible for fees-free.

Your TEO will be told and you'll 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, go to the Fees Free homepage and enter your National Student Number.
