Student loans

We can provide short-term loans of up to $2000 at no interest to help you continue their studies if you find yourself in a difficult financial situation.

Short-term loans are available to current CSU students who are Australian citizens, permanent residents or who hold a humanitarian visa.

Short-term loans may be used to meet expenses such as:

  • textbooks and journals
  • course equipment
  • travel and accommodation costs for compulsory placements and residential schools
  • study related equipment
  • living expenses
  • emergency medical and dental expenses
  • bond and rent in advance if relocating for study purposes

Emergency loans

If you need emergency assistance (within one working day) for essential expenses such as food, accommodation or a medical or family crisis we can provide loans of up to $100.

All current students who are Australian citizens, permanent residents or who hold a humanitarian visa are eligible to apply for an emergency loan.

International students

Zero interest student loans are available to eligible enrolled on-shore international students studying at one of CSU's regional campuses, including Albury-Wodonga, Bathurst, Dubbo, Orange, Port Macquarie and Wagga Wagga.
