1. Overview

HECS-HELP is a loan scheme administered by the Australian Government.

The sections on this page explain:

  • how to set up a HECS-HELP loan through mySI-net
  • how your student contributions are calculated by the University
  • how to make an upfront payment, and
  • due dates, and other important information.

This page assumes you are eligible for HECS-HELP and that you understand the basics of how it works.

For more information about eligibility and the loan scheme, see the Study Assist website.


If you have any questions about fees or payments, contact a Student Centre or submit a question to UQ Answers.
