Which fee applies to me?

Skills First Exemptions
Government eligibility exemptions for TAFE via Skills First funding gives you greater access to study with TAFE at an affordable price.

The good news is, that there are now a reduced number of criteria for you to meet in order to be eligible for a Government subsidy. If you don’t meet those criteria you will be a full fee paying student.

Government Subsidised Fee
You meet all Skills First eligibility criteria but DO NOT hold a current healthcare or pension card, OR you are eligible for a Skills First exemption.

Concession Fee
You meet all eligibility criteria AND hold a current healthcare or pension card, that you can provide at enrolment. It’s important to

note that the concession rate is only applicable for Certificate l to Certificate lV courses and students who have declared their ATSI origin.

Full fee
Full fees only apply to the few students who do not meet the Skills First eligibility criteria, do not qualify for an exemption or are enrolling in course that is not government subsidised.

Check your fees eligibility here.

How do I pay my fees?

Unless an alternative fee payment method is approved, your course fees are required to be paid upfront and in full at the time of enrolment.  If your personal circumstances mean that payment in full is not possible, then you may be able to pay your fees by

  • Payment Plan
  • Centre Pay
  • VET Student Loan (Diploma & Advanced Diploma only)

SWTAFE offers a range of scholarships each year which you may be eligible to apply for to assist with enrolment fees.
