Date to provide TFN

Repayments of a Higher Education Loan Program (HELP Loan) are made through the tax system.

As a result, if eligible you need to provide your Tax File Number (TFN) to the University by census date of your first term, or you will be required to pay your HECS contributions in full.

You can submit your TFN via myHub through myUON. Since your TFN is yours for life, you should only need to supply it to the University once during your time here.

If you don’t have a TFN, you can apply for one for free via the Australian Government website. If you have not received your TFN by the census date, you can apply for provisional access to a loan by providing the University with a Certificate of Application for a TFN.
