On 1 January 2017 a new scheme called VET Student Loans was introduced for new students, replacing the VET FEE-HELP loan scheme. "Grandfathering" arrangements were implemented to minimise disruption to continuing students wanting to complete their studies under VET FEE-HELP in 2018.

Students who have accessed VET FEE-HELP and completed unit/s in 2017, but have not yet completed their course, may be eligible to extend their VET FEE-HELP assistance into 2018 under exceptional circumstances.

Exceptional circumstances may include illness, caring responsibilities, part-time studies, engagement in courses with longer than 12 months duration and students impacted by provider closure and tuition assurance activation.

These arrangements are only available for units of study with census dates occurring on or before 31 December 2018. If you have any questions about using VET FEE-HELP in 2018, please contact vetfeehelp@chisholm.edu.au or you can visit the Department of Education and Training Website studyassist.gov.au.
