FEE-HELP is a loan scheme that assists eligible students to pay their tuition fees. The Australian Government pays the amount of the loan directly to the students Higher Education Provider, in this case ACPE. Students repay their loan through the Australian taxation system once their income rises above the minimum threshold for compulsory repayment.
