Concessions and Fee Assistance
Fee Assistance is a financial assistance program that can assist with course costs for eligible students who are experiencing financial hardship.
To apply, students must submit an online application form and supporting documents each time they would like support towards an eligible course cost.
* If eligible, CIT fee concessions are available in addition to Fee Assistance.
A 50% concession applies to all students (including Australian Apprentices) who are in receipt of Pensioner Concession Card (PCC), Health Care Card, Veteran Affairs Pension, or Veteran Affairs Children's Education Scheme Allowance (VACESA).
You will need to provide evidence of eligibility for concession. You will need to provide at least one of the following:
- Recent Income Statement - Centrelink form. These statements are available on request from Centrelink and must show your name, address, type of benefit and date benefit commenced.
- Current Letter of Confirmation - Centrelink form. This is the letter sent to advise recipients of their Centrelink entitlements and payment arrangements. It must show your name, address, type of benefit, and date benefit commenced. CIT Student Services will check that the fees due date is covered.
