Fee Help

FEE-HELP is a Commonwealth Government loan scheme for higher education students which is available to Australian citizens and residents with permanent resident humanitarian visas. Under this scheme students enrolling in all ACD Higher Education Courses can apply for a Fee-Help loan to pay their tuition fees. This is the equivalent of HECS-Help for Private institutions.
