Apprentice Concessions

Find out how to receive a reduction on your fees!

Australian Apprentices with a current Health Care Card, Pensioner Concession Card or Veteran's Gold Card are entitled to receive a 50% fee reduction on eligible courses.

If you are under 18 and your parents hold one of the above cards, you will also be eligible to receive a 50% fee reduction if you are listed as a dependent.

To have a concession applied to your student account, you must:

  • Show your current Health Care Card, Pensioner Concession Card or Veteran's Gold Card at any CIT Student Services.*

AND

  • Request that your concession be applied to your account BEFORE all outstanding fees have been paid.
*Alternatively From the "Express Plus Centrelink" app you can provide a screenshot of your "Digital Wallet" Health Care Card and emailing it as an attachment to infoline@cit.edu.au.

If you have a physical Health Care Card or Pensioner Concession Card, you can take a photo and attach it in an email to infoline@cit.edu.au.

Australian Apprentices who don't have a current Health Care Card, Pensioner Concession Card or Veteran's Gold Card, may still be eligible for a concession, by providing evidence (in the form of payslips) demonstrating you are a low income earner, or apply for financial hardship circumstances.

Complete the CIT Apprentice Income Online Form and either submit via email to infoline@cit.edu.au

Health Care Card Benefits As an Australian Apprentice you may be eligible to receive a health care card and are encouraged to obtain one. In addition to a reduction in fees, this card provides other useful benefits (including medical discounts). For any assistance in applying for a health care card, contact CITSA or Centrelink.

Even if you earn above the income limits listed on the CIT Apprentice & Skilled Capital Students Concession/Hardship Checklist you can still speak to CITSA and they can apply for a concession on the grounds of financial hardship. Speak to either CITSA on 62073600 or CIT Student Services on 6207 3188.

Concessions do not apply to: Excursion fees, administration fees or CIT Card replacement fee.
