TAFE direct debit payment plan

We have partnered with FACTS Management to offer direct debit payment plans for TAFE students. This will allow you to apply for a direct debit payment plan to easily manage the payment of your fees throughout the calendar year.

The FACTS self-management platform offers the freedom and flexibility to:

  • view your direct debit payment instalments
  • update your financial details
  • make additional payments towards your instalments
  • delay a scheduled instalment up to 5 days - maximum of 3 delays per year
  • nominate authorised parties to make payments (ie, parent/guardian)
  • view communications that have been sent

Who can apply?

If you are studying a certificate I – IV or VCAL and have tuition fees and/or material fees you are eligible for a direct debit payment plan.

If you are studying a diploma or advanced diploma you can apply for a direct debit payment plan for any material fee charges associated with your course, however you are unable to apply for a direct debit payment plan for your tuition fees. Your tuition fees are due throughout the year based on your individual unit (subject) census dates (due dates).

Direct debit payment plans are only available for current year fees.
