Commonwealth assistance notices

After the census date for each semester that you are enrolled the University will issue you with a Commonwealth Assistance Notice (CAN). Your CAN shows important details of your enrolment at the census date including the courses in which you are enrolled, Student Contribution Amount payments and any HELP debt that you have incurred.

Your CAN will be provided electronically and you will be advised via your FedUni email account when the CAN is available to view online through my Student Centre.

What information is on my CAN?

If you are a Commonwealth Supported Place student, your CAN will include information on:

  • the units of study for which you have received Commonwealth assistance;
  • the student contribution amounts you have been charged for the units you are enrolled in;
  • any up-front payments you have made;
  • any HECS-HELP assistance you have used for that semester study period, if you are using HECS-HELP to pay your student contributions; and

If you have applied for FEE-HELP or VET FEE-HELP, your CAN will include information on:

  • the tuition fees for your units of study;
  • the units for which you have received FEE-HELP or VET FEE-HELP;
  • any up-front payments you have made;
  • any FEE-HELP loan fee incurred for undergraduate units of study; and

Your CAN will also includes information on SA-HELP assistance you have used for that semester study period, if you are using SA-HELP to pay your Student Services and Amenities Fee; and information on OS-HELP, if you have accessed an OS-HELP loan.
