FEES, FEE-HELP AND AUSTUDY
Tuition fees for University of Divinity courses are set annually by the University of Divinity Council.
The table of 2023 fees can be accessed here.
The student tuition fee for a unit must be paid in full prior to the commencement of a unit. Fees are paid directly to the University of Divinity at the time of admission or re-enrolment.
FEE-HELP AND AUSTUDY
Australian citizens and holders of a permanent humanitarian visa may defer the payment of fees through the FEE-HELP loan scheme. Tuition fees are paid by the Australian Government and debited to a loan account. Students are not required to begin repaying the accumulated loan debt until their taxable income rises above the compulsory repayment threshold.
Note that University of Divinity students receiving FEE-HELP are not required to pay the 20% loan fee.
For details regarding eligibility and regulations see FEE-HELP at the Australian Government Study Assist site.
New or existing SCMOI students in a University of Divinity course who wish to secure FEE-HELP funding, should first contact student admissions at Uniting College.
For more on the FEE-HELP application process see here.
Austudy (for those over 25 years of age) or Youth Allowance (16-24 years, means tested) may be available. For a summary of these and other forms of student assistance see here. See also the Services Australia Payment and Services Finder.
Students normally are required to enrol in at least 75% of the normal full-time work load to be eligible for Austudy and Youth Allowance.
For further information on Austudy and Youth Allowance contact Centrelink (Services Australia).
Students receiving Austudy or Youth Allowance should notify Centrelink if their enrolment falls below a full-time load in any semester.
