Coding notes

Code 240 "Received loans through OS-HELP" is not to be used on the Load/Liability File. This code is only to be used in the OS-HELP File. There must also be a matching record on the HELP-DUE File.

A domestic postgraduate research student who is not RTS supported may be charged tuition fees or awarded an Exemption scholarship under code 270. If regional adjustment package has been used to support such students, they should be included under code 270.

A domestic postgraduate research student charged tuition fees may receive FEE-HELP assistance.

FOR reporting to ATO purposes only, Element 490 (Student status) will be concorded to Element 380 (Liability status codes):
  • Element 380 = 80 (E490 = 110, 201)
  • Element 380 = 81 (E490 = 220, 230, 231, 232, 233)
  • Element 380 = 82 (E490 = 240)

A student’s HECS-HELP status is determined by assessing the status of all units of study undertaken, in a given course of study, on a given census date.

HECS-HELP eligible students who have deferred all or part of their student contribution amount for any unit of study, within a course of study, on a particular census date, must be reported as deferred for all units of study undertaken as a HECS-HELP student, in that course of study, on that census date.

Therefore, HECS-HELP eligible students may be reported as deferred for a particular unit of study, within a course of study, even though they have paid 80% of the amount reported at Element 384 (Amount charged).

Please refer to the Glossary for further information about terminology used in this document.
