Important Information for VET FEE HELP students


The Australian Government will make it easier for students to seek waiver of any VET FEE-HELP debt which they feel has been unfairly applied.

 

Currently, students must appeal to their training provider to remove a debt, which is only available under limited special circumstances, or, as a last resort, seek a waiver from the 

Department of Finance.

•It will be easier for students to seek to remove a debt that was entered into inappropriately.

•Training providers will be more accountable or repayment arising from poor recruitment and management practices.

•These revised processes will be developed with the Department of Finance and Australian Taxation Office.

•Legislation will be introduced into Parliament to enable the measures to be implemented  from 1 January 2016.

 

 Detail on these changes can be found in the following factsheet -- https://docs.education.gov.au/system/files/doc/other/vet_fee_help_reforms_-_implementation_overview_acc.pdf
