Overview

This report provides details of students who have exceeded their HELP entitlement for FEE‑HELP and OS‑HELP. These reports show invalidated or adjusted records to the limit of the student's remaining entitlement.

Student Entitlement Calculations are performed daily through an overnight process against data reported by providers. Further information on entitlement calculations is available in the glossary.

The Invalid HELP Debts Summary report displays the number of FEE‑HELP units and OS‑HELP loans adjusted or invalidated.

The following student loan types are included in this report:

  • FEE‑HELP
  • VET FEE‑HELP
  • OS‑HELP

Invalidated FEE‑HELP debt

A FEE‑HELP debt for a unit of study is invalidated through the nightly Student Entitlement Calculations when a student has exceeded their FEE‑HELP limit and they have no FEE‑HELP balance remaining.
