Semester 1 census date is just around the corner! Find out what study changes you need to tell us about.
Changes to your study can affect your student payment. Here are 4 changes you need to tell us about.
- You’ve dropped a subject or 2
If you’ve dropped a subject you may need to let us know.
Your place of study can tell you what your EFTSL is. If you’ve got an online student portal, your enrolment info may be there.
If you’ve reduced your study load and are no longer considered full time, you need to update your study details.
To find out more about full time study, go to Study loads for Austudy and Youth Allowance.
- You’ve stopped studying completely
If you stop studying, it affects your eligibility. You need to tell us as soon as you’ve stopped to avoid getting a debt.
You must be studying, or doing an Australian Apprenticeship to get:
- You’ve changed courses
- You’ve changed where you study
Make sure you update your details if you’ve changed your place of study.
Even if your course has the same name and the only change is your educational institution, you still need to let us know.
Don’t forget, if there’s a change in your circumstances, for example if you start work or move, you must let us know within 14 days. If you don’t tell us, it may affect your payment. You may end up owing money to us that you will need to pay back.
Changes to your study may also affect eligibility for the Student Start-up Loan.
