Make a tuition fee payment

You can pay your tuition fees through eStudent via credit card (Visa or Mastercard).

You need to pay your Tuition Fees in FULL by the payment due date, otherwise your enrolment will be cancelled. If your enrolment is cancelled, JCU is required to report this to the Department of Immigration and Citizenship, which may affect your Visa status.

If you are not offered a Commonwealth supported place you will be required to pay Domestic Tuition Fees. You need to make FULL payment of your tuition fees by the subject payment due date, otherwise your enrolment in that subject may be affected.  You must finalise all matters relating to your enrolment by the subject census date, otherwise your enrolment will be cancelled. You may pay your fees in instalments as long as the full payment is received by the payment due date.

Australian citizens or holders of a permanent humanitarian visa enrolled in an award course can choose to defer payment by requesting government FEE-HELP assistance. To defer payment of your fees you must submit a valid eCAF (with Tax File Number by the subject census date).

Your outstanding balances as at the census date will be advised to the Australian Taxation Office if you have requested a FEE-HELP loan.
