Students Fees & Financial Support Subject fees - Commonwealth supported students

These subject fees are for both postgraduate and undergraduate Commonwealth supported students. Non-Commonwealth supported students need to view the domestic full tuition fee paying subject fees.

As a Commonwealth supported student the Australian government will pay part of your fees directly to JCU* and the remaining amount is paid by you - these amounts are known as student contribution amounts.

These amounts must either be paid upfront or deferred (if eligible) by the census date for each study period. Students who are eligible to defer their student contribution amounts are also eligible for a 10 per cent HECS-HELP discount if they pay $500 or more upfront. This discount effectively increases the value of your upfront payment. Note: this discount may be removed from 1 January 2016 when new legislation, proposed by the Australian Government, is passed.

*Not all JCU campuses offer Commonwealth supported places.

Understanding subject fees

Your subject fee amounts are based on what band your subject sits in.

For example, if you study a law subject (Band 3) within an Arts degree you would pay the Band 3 fee for that subject even though most of your Arts degree subjects are listed under Band 1.

See the subject fees amounts below to view your fees by year (24 credit points) and subject (3 credit points). You can also view the credit point value for individual subjects.

If you think you may be eligible for Pre-2010 fees, email the following details to enrolmentstownsville@jcu.edu.au: your name and student ID, course title, year started, last active year of study, if you completed the course; and the name of the university.
