Fees and Finances

I am a continuing student. When are my tuition fees due?

Tuition fees are due 2 weeks before the start of each semester. You should receive an invoice in the mail before the end of each semester and if you do not receive your invoice please contact the International Services Unit to organise for one to be sent out to you.

I am a continuing student. How can I pay my tuition fees?

There are a few options for paying your fees.

  • Students can take their Invoice to CIT Student Services on any campus and pay over the counter via EFTPOS and Credit Card only. Student Services do not accept cash payments. You must be aware that if you are paying by EFTPOS your card may have a daily limit on it, so please check this with your bank.
  • By direct deposit straight to CIT's bank account. Account details are on your Invoice.
  • By credit card over the phone. Please call the International Services Unit's Finance Office on (02) 6205 1265.
  • You can send a bank cheque or a personal cheque to:

    International Services Unit
    Finance Officer
    PO Box 226
    JAMISON ACT 2614

Please do not pay by BPay or through Canberra Connect. This is not an option for International Students.

The amount you need to pay is on your Letter of Offer. This amount cannot be paid until all conditions are met. Please call the International Services Unit on (02) 6207 4662 to obtain payment options.

What happens if I cannot pay my tuition fees by the due date?

If you are having trouble paying you fees you must contact the International Services Unit to arrange an appointment with a Student Advisor before the due date.
