Help with costs

Deferring fees with government assistance

Some CSU Online students are eligible for government assistance while studying with CSU. Depending whether you’re an undergraduate or postgraduate student, you may be eligible for a HECS-HELP or a FEE-HELP loan. Both initiatives allow you to defer your fees while studying (which means you won’t pay anything up front), and pay them off once you're earning a certain salary.
