The information provided through the SA‑HELP file will be used to inform the ATO about the SA‑HELP debt that has been incurred by a student(s). To be eligible for SA‑HELP a student must:
- be an Australian citizen or a permanent humanitarian visa holder resident in Australia;
- be enrolled in a course of study (including bridging study for overseas-trained professionals) with a higher education provider;
- meet the Tax File Number (TFN) requirements; and
- complete and sign a Request for SA‑HELP Assistance form.
As it is part of the eligibility requirements, it is therefore essential that a course of study be specified in reference to SA‑HELP.
