To find out how to enrol as a commencing student, refer to your enrolment guide for step-by-step instructions.

Before you apply - Read the relevant HELP loan booklet to ensure you understand the terms and conditions of each loan.

How to apply - Log in to myRMIT and select Enrolment Online. Under Financial details, select View / apply for Commonwealth assistance (eCAF).

New VET Student Loans from 1 January 2017

From 1 January 2017, the Australian Government will no longer offer VET FEE-HELP (VFH) loans and a new VET Student Loans program will commence.

If you currently have a VFH loan and you are continuing your program in 2017, the Government will contact you to give you the option to continue to access VFH until 31 December 2017, or to apply for the new VET Student Loans program.

If you are commencing a new program after 1 January 2017, you will need to apply for the new VET Student Loans program.
