ALP Payment Options and Incidental Fees

ALP Payment Options and Incidental Fees


Helping eligible students pay for all or part of their tuition

ALP has academic status as an Award program, which means you may be eligible for a FEE-HELP loan.

FEE‑HELP is a loan scheme that assists eligible students pay all or part of their tuition fees. It does not cover study costs such as accommodation and textbooks.  

Loans are only available to Australian citizens or to students who hold a permanent humanitarian visa. Loans are also only available to students who undertake at least part of their ALP in Australia.

You can apply for a FEE-HELP loan when completing your online enrolment form.

Upfront Payment

You must pay the full course fee when submitting your application to enrol in the Coursework component.

If you are using FEE-HELP, you are not required to make an upfront payment (since the cost of the course is repayable through the tax system after you begin working).

How to pay

Payment may be made by any of the following methods:

  • Credit card (Visa, MasterCard or Amex)
  • Bank cheque
  • Personal cheque
  • Direct deposit into The College of Law account:

  Account Name  College of Law
Bank Name  National Australia Bank
BSB No  082 212
Account No 164 281 531
Bank Address  32 Willoughby Road, Crows Nest NSW 2065

Cash will only be accepted for payments less than $100.

Tax Deduction

You may be able to claim a tax deduction for the cost of self-education at the time the expense was incurred. 

Please visit the ATO website to learn more.


The College of Law has a bursary scheme that covers a limited number of positions. To be eligible, you must show that you are experiencing financial hardship to the extent that it prevents you from being able to pay for the program.

If you are eligible for FEE-HELP, it will be difficult to satisfy this criterion.


FEE-HELP only covers tuition fees and does not typically apply to incidental fees. These fees are in accordance with the rules and policies outlined in the Program Manual (PDF).

If you wish to withdraw, you must submit your notice of withdrawal in writing on or before the census date. The census date is the last date you can withdraw from a subject without financial penalty.

Refunds will not be given after the census date (other than in exceptional circumstances which are at the College’s discretion).

If you have applied for FEE-HELP, you may withdraw on or before the census date without incurring a Commonwealth debt. After the census date, you become liable to repay the tuition fees via the tax system.
