Payments

Information on how to pay for your Student Contribution or Tuition Fees.

  • Your Invoice

    Invoices are issued for each study period through Access Adelaide.

    Invoices are issued to all students, including those who have successfully applied for FEE-HELP and HECS-HELP.

    An email message to your University of Adelaide student email account advises you when an invoice is available. This enables you to view and print your invoice as soon as it is generated.

    To view your invoice online, log in to Access Adelaide, then select:

    1. My Finances
    2. My Invoices

    Your invoice includes:

    • your personal details, including name, address, program/s in which you are enrolled and student ID number
    • the fees and charges for the current invoice period or, if you are receiving a second invoice for that period, the new items not previously included. These fees and charges are based on your enrolment at the time the invoice was produced
    • the total amount due for the invoice period
    • a summary of your account, including an Opening Balance (the status of your account before this invoice was produced) and a Total Payable (including this invoice and any previous amounts outstanding)
    • the due date by which payment must be made. If you are enrolled in multiple sessions your invoice may include multiple due dates. These will be displayed next to each charge.

    Check the details on your invoice carefully. If you have difficulty with Access Adelaide or have any concerns about your invoice, contact Ask Adelaide.

    If you make an enrolment change after the invoice is produced, a further invoice will be issued.

    Please note: Students are NOT sent a hardcopy of their invoice unless there are exceptional circumstances.

  • Your Account

    You can check your student account online at any time through Access Adelaide. Your account has the most up-to-date information based on your current enrolment details and any recent payments. If you believe your account on Access Adelaide is incorrect, contact Ask Adelaide.

    Please note: Electronic payments can take up to three working days to register on your account.

  • Payment Due Dates

    Your invoice will specify a due date for payment. All payments must be received by this date as the consequences of late or non-payment of fees can be significant.

    Domestic Commonwealth Supported students

    All Student Contribution payments are due by the date specified on your invoice. If you wish to make a partial payment, you must do so by the due date.

    If you are eligible and intend to defer payment of your Student Contribution to a HECS-HELP loan, have provided your Tax File Number (TFN) and have completed The Request for Commonwealth Support and HECS-HELP form, you don't have to pay anything by the due date. If you have not provided your TFN it can be entered into Access Adelaide via:

    2. Tax File Number

    Please see our HECS-HELP page for more information.

    The University cannot accept a payment of Student Contribution after the census date. You may however make a voluntary repayment directly to the Australian Taxation Office (ATO) after that time.


    Domestic Tuition Fee Paying Students

    All local tuition fee payments are due by the date specified on the invoice. If you wish to make a partial payment, you must do so by the due date.

    If you are eligible and intend to defer payment of your local tuition fee to a FEE-HELP loan, have provided your Tax File Number (TFN) and have completed The Request for FEE-HELP form, you don't have to pay anything by the due date. If you have not provided your TFN it can be entered into Access Adelaide via:

    1. My Finances

    International Students
