Make at tuition fee payment

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

International Students
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.

Domestic Students 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 effected. You must finalise all matters relating to your enrolment by the subject census date, otherwise your enrolment will be cancelled.

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).

You may pay your fees in instalments, provided that full payment is made by the payment due date. If you do not pay your fees by the payment due date and have not submitted a valid eCAF by the census date, your enrolment in the subject(s) will be cancelled.

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

Credit card payments are made through the SecurePay gateway. The minimum acceptable payment is $10 and the maximum is $20,000.

If you chose personal email you MUST have previously recorded a personal email address in eStudent via Email Details. You will not receive a Payment Notification Advice if this hasn’t been completed. We recommend you use your JCU email for this.

  • After submitting your payment you need to confirm that the payment details are correct by selecting Confirm Payment button
