St Andrew's is committed to admitting the most able and dedicated students to its courses, regardless of their financial means or background. Most students are eligible for financial support.

All students are invited to consider applying for a scholarship using the Enrolment Form.

Methods of Payment

Australian citizens and holders of a permanent humanitarian visa enrolled in an accredited undergraduate or postgraduate award program may pay their tuition fee in three different ways:

  • Pay the full amount of the tuition fee up front by cash, cheque, money order, direct deposit or credit card (VISA and MasterCard only).
  • Receive a FEE-HELP loan from the Federal Government for the full tuition fee
  • Pay a portion of the tuition fee up front and receive a FEE-HELP loan for the remainder of the full tuition fee.

Overseas students studying via distance education (online) mode must pay the full amount of the tuition fee up front in Australian dollars by:

  • cheque or draft drawn on an Australian bank; or
  • credit card (VISA and MasterCard only); or
  • bank transfer

Tuition fees are charged on a semester basis, as the majority of units run for only a semester. Payment is due prior to the commencement of the semester. Payment of fees, or completion of the FEE-HELP online application process, completes the enrolment process without which a student may not be permitted to attend class or access their distance education unit(s).


Students may withdraw from a unit without financial penalty only if notice of withdrawal is submitted in writing to the Registrar by the Census Date of the relevant semester.

If withdrawal is within the specified deadlines a full refund of fees may be requested.
