4. Upfront payments

You are welcome to pay some or all of your student contributions upfront. The minimum partial payment amount is $500.

Upfront payments are due by the due date displayed under 'Financial' in mySI-net.

Please note that the Australian Government no longer offers a discount for upfront payments.

To pay the full amount, first log in to mySI-net, then:

  1. Go to the 'Financial' tab.
  2. Click 'HECS-HELP eCAF' and choose the 'upfront payment' option.
  3. Follow the steps and submit.

If you're paying the full amount upfront, we encourage you to also submit your tax file number as a safety net.

A tax file number will ensure your enrolment isn't cancelled if you forget – or you're unable – to pay your student contributions upfront in the future.

The tax file number will ensure that any outstanding student contributions are automatically paid by a HECS-HELP loan.
