Payment Plans

TAFE Queensland East Coast offers an interest free payment plan option to approved students allowing them to pay off their fees in instalments over the duration of their study. Terms and conditions apply, and payment plans are only offered through Direct Bank Debit contracts.

To apply for a payment plan you will need to visit Customer Service Centre and bring all of the following documentation:

  • official photo ID (passport, driver's license or 18+ card)
  • If you are under 18 you will need a person over 18 years of age to act as your Loan Guarantor and they must provide photo ID also.
  • Evidence of bank account details for direct debit contract.

Please note: The payment plan option is not available for programs running less than 4 weeks.

Enrolling Online and Payment Plans

You can still apply for a payment plan if you enrol online. Just select the 'Pay In Person' option when finalising your enrolment and then come into the campus to process your payment plan application.
