The University of Divinity Council sets tuition fees and fees for other services annually. Fees at the University are governed by the Fees Policy. The approved schedule of tuition fees can be downloaded below.
2021 University of Divinity Fees
The Council has determined to set 2021 tuition fees at the same price as 2020 as a measure of supporting students in their studies through the financial challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic.
How to pay student tuition fees
The student tuition fee for a unit must be paid in full prior to the commencement of a unit. Fees are paid directly to the University of Divinity at the time of admission or re-enrolment.
Students may pay fees by any one of the following methods:
Australian citizens and holders of a permanent humanitarian visa may defer the payment of fees through the FEE-HELP loan scheme. Tuition fees are paid by the Australian Government and debited to a loan account. Students are not required to begin repaying the accumulated loan debt until their taxable income rises above the compulsory repayment threshold.
Applying for FEE-HELP
When do I apply for FEE-HELP?
FEE-HELP funding is linked to your course of study. If you are a new or existing student at the University of Divinity starting a new course or transferring to another course and you wish to secure FEE-HELP funding for that course, you will need to apply using the steps detailed below.
You must submit your application for FEE-HELP (eCAF) before the census date of your first unit. This will be listed on the eCAF. Otherwise, you will have to pay tuition fees in full upfront.
Re-enrolling students within the same course who are already on FEE-HELP do not need to take any action.
How to apply for FEE-HELP
- Step one (Student): Contact your College to let them know you wish to apply for FEE-HELP. Your intention to apply for FEE-HELP should be clearly indicated on your admission or re-enrolment (or financial variation) form.
- Step two (your College): Your College will apply for an eCAF (electronic Commonwealth Assistance Form) on your behalf. You will then receive an email from the Department of Education and Training inviting you to complete your eCAF.
- Step three (Student): The invitation will include a web-link which you will access with a Passkey given in the email along with your date of birth. You will need your Tax File No. to complete your eCAF. If there are any errors in your eCAF which you are unable to edit, then you must contact your College to correct this before you submit it.
For assistance, please contact your College.
Cheque or money order
Please attach a cheque or money order payable to the ‘University of Divinity’ to the admission form, re-enrolment form, or enrolment variation form as appropriate.
Fees may be paid by VISA or Mastercard. No extra charge applies. Please provide credit card details and authorisation on the admission form, re-enrolment form or enrolment variation form. Students may specify a date when payment is to be processed, provided this date is prior to the commencement of units. If a payment is declined, students will be contacted.
Please indicate you wish to pay by BPAY on your admission form, re-enrolment form or enrolment variation form. Your College will then provide you with a Statement of Fees within a few days. This Statement includes the University BPAY Biller Code and a unique reference number. Students must ensure they have completed the BPAY transaction prior to the commencement of units.
Third party payment
Students whose fees are paid by a third party, such as a sponsor, church, or employer, must provide an official record from the third party such as a letter accepting responsibility for payment of the fees together with the admission form, re-enrolment form or enrolment variation form. The third party will be invoiced directly by the University. Students in this category may also elect to use the BPAY facility and pass the Statement of Fees to the sponsor for prompt payment.
Western Union for Overseas Payment
Overseas students can pay tuition fees in local currency using Western Union Business Solutions. Western Union will deliver the funds directly to the University.
Research Fee Scholarship
Student tuition fees for doctoral students who have been awarded a Research Fee Scholarship will be met by Research Training Program funds.
Refund of student tuition fees
The University’s Fees Policy provides for the refund of student tuition fees or the recrediting of a FEE-HELP balance when special circumstances apply.
Students subject to financial hardship may be eligible to apply for a University Bursary. Please consult the Bursary Policy before completing a Bursary Application form and ensure you contact your College for assistance prior to submission.
If you require assistance or more information about the payment of fees, please contact the Finance team in the Office of the Vice-Chancellor.
