Finance & Fee-Help

At Morling we understand that the cost of education includes more than tuition fees. Your costs may also include rent, meals and the expenses of living whilst you learn. We believe your time at Morling is best used to prepare for your future instead of managing a complex set of financial requirements.

Students attending Morling have a number of finance options available to make the costs manageable and the process easy.


Government assistance is available in the form of FEE-HELP and Centrelink depending on your situation and course of study. In special cases, Morling offers payment options to students who are unable to pay tuition up front.



The Federal Government offers the FEE-HELP government loan scheme to assist Australians to fund their education, by paying an eligible student's tuition fees. Eligible students (Australian citizens and residents who hold a permanent humanitarian visa) attending Morling are able to access a FEE-Help loan of up to $113,208 (current lifetime limit in 2023) for the course they are undertaking. This loan is then repaid through the taxation system once the student's taxable income is above a certain threshold. This income threshold is currently $51,550 per annum for the 2022-23 income year.

FEE-HELP is available for all units taken for credit towards an award at Morling (except for the Certificate of Theology) and eligible students should complete a Request for FEE-HELP form via eCAF for each new course of study and indicate payment using FEE-HELP on each enrolment form. A link to the eCAF website will be emailed in the Confirmation of Enrolment email.
