The VET Student Loans program is an income contingent Australian Government loan program that helps eligible students enrolled in approved courses at diploma level or above, pay their tuition fees. The loan has income-contingent repayment arrangements, which means you only need to make repayments if you are earning above the minimum repayment threshold. You can make voluntary repayments at any time.
If you are an eligible student, the Department of Education, Skills and Employment (the Department) may approve your VET Student Loan for an approved course. The Department will pay your loan directly to your approved course provider. You will be responsible for any gap amount in the tuition fees, which are not covered by the loan. You will owe a debt to the Australian Government for the loan, which will be managed by the Australian Taxation Office (ATO)
