If you experience undue financial hardship during your studies, we’re here to help.
The Student Loans Scheme allows you to apply for an interest-free loan of up to $500 maximum to be repaid within 12 months.
You will be assessed on a needs basis, and particular attention will be paid to the requirements of students from country or isolated areas, and students from disadvantaged groups such as low-income groups.
Criteria for eligibility
You must be enrolled in an award undergraduate course (bachelors) or a fourth year program (honours/graduate certificate/graduate diploma). Non-award, masters and doctoral students are not eligible.
You are not eligible for a loan during your first semester of attendance at ACU.
You must have paid in full any outstanding debt to the University and all applicable Student Service Fees before you apply.
If you receive a grant from the Commonwealth Government, you are not eligible for a loan.
