There are a number of ways you can pay your tuition fees. Begin by checking what fees are due by looking in eStudent under Finances > Outstanding Debt.

Please note you must pay your tuition fees by the term due date. If you don’t pay your fees on time, a sanction may be imposed and you will not be able to view results, qualify for your program, graduate or articulate until all outstanding fees are cleared.

Also, if you pay tuition fees after the term due date you will be fined $200 by Macquarie University (Macquarie University Calendar of Governance, Legislation and Rules).

Pay direct


We recommend eStudent as the simplest payment option.

View the amount you owe and make a credit card payment via eStudent. Simply log into eStudent and go to Check Finances > Outstanding Debt.

If you want your Statement of Outstanding Charges emailed to you select Email my Statement of Outstanding Charges for the last 180 days.

Pay from outside Australia

Go to Macquarie University’s Western Union payment portal.

Include your full name and student ID number in the remittance advice.

Other payment options

Please refer to the Macquarie University website for the full range of payment options available.

Pay using FEE-HELP

FEE-HELP is a Government loan scheme that assists eligible students pay their tuition fees.

It is available to students enrolled in MGSM award programs. It is not available to students enrolled in MGSM Single Unit non-award programs.

Apply for FEE-HELP by lodging an application form via eStudent. Go to Finances > Submit Commonwealth Assistance Form, and then follow the instructions.

Once you have lodged your form online, allow 48 hours for processing. The status of your application (e.g. approved, invalid) will show up in Finances > Submit Commonwealth Assistance Form.

The deadline to submit a FEE-HELP form is the census date of the enrolled term. Forms submitted after the term's census date will only take effect at the start of the following term.

FEE-HELP is approved on a program basis. If you are articulating to a new program and wish to be on FEE-HELP, you need to submit a new FEE-HELP form for your new program.

Please note if you are a returning student and are resuming studies after a prolonged absence, a new record may have been created for your program. If you wish to be on FEE-HELP, please confirm with Student Services if you need to resubmit a FEE-HELP form.

The Study Assist site has more information about FEE-HELP.

When your employer is paying your fees

If your employer is sponsoring (paying) some or all of your tuition fees, they will need to fill out a sponsorship commitment form and a guarantee of sponsorship. We will then send them an invoice at the beginning of each term based on the percentage contribution agreed to and the number of units you are in enrolled in.
