Payments can be made at a Student Centre using credit card, debit card, cheque or money order.

Payments from overseas

Payments by post, Visa or Mastercard are preferred if you are paying administrative fees from overseas.

Due dates

All fees – including tuition fees (US dollars) and the Student Services and Amenities Fee (Australian dollars) – have to be paid by the relevant due date.

If you make changes to your enrolment after the fees due date, any additional fees must be paid within two days of the change.

Late payments

Your enrolment at the University is provisional until you have paid all fees and charges. A $100 late penalty applies if all your fees aren't paid by the fees due date. 

Late fees are charged in Australian dollars and are displayed in mySI-net. To pay late fees, go to the 'Financials' tile and click the 'Pay my fees now' link.

If your fees are still unpaid by Census Date your enrolment may be cancelled.

Tuition fee invoices

Tuition fee invoices are sent to your UQ student email account. 

Please ensure you enrol in courses with enough time for the University to generate an invoice, so you can make a payment.

Tuition fee invoices will display:

  • the relevant study period (i.e. semester or medical rotation)
  • the payment due date
  • available payment methods, and
  • tuition fee amount owed.

Tuition fee invoices are sent to enrolled Phase 1 students in:

  • January – for Semester 1, and
  • June – for Semester 2. 

Tuition fee invoices are sent to enrolled Phase 2 students approximately six weeks before the fees due date for each medical rotation

Please note that Phase 2 students receive separate invoices: one for the semester and one for each medical rotation. This is because Phase 2 students enrol in a 1-unit semester-based course each year, along with their medical rotations.

All invoices must be paid by the relevant due date. 

    Regularly check your UQ student email (and junk folder) for your tuition fee invoice and other important correspondence.
