What is VET Fee Help?
Vocational Education and Training (VET) Fee Help is an income contingent loan scheme for the VET sector that is part of the Higher Education Loan Program (HELP).
VET Fee Help allows you pay back your course fees slowly through the tax system, either through a before tax deduction from your pay or from your tax return.
You only need to start paying your loan back once you earn over a certain amount. Currently that amount is $49,095 and it is increased regularly to match inflation.
ITCC offers VET Fee Help assistance to new and ongoing domestic students.
