Your Rights and Responsibilities
Find out about your responsibilities if you receive a Student Allowance or Student Loan, and your right to disagree with a StudyLink decision.
Passing your course
If you get the Student Allowance, you need to ensure you pass more than half your course in order to keep getting it.
If you get a Student Loan (fees, living costs or course-related costs) you need to pass at least half of your course load (EFTS) over a set period in order to keep your eligibility to a Student Loan.
Change in your circumstances
If you have any changes to your, your parent/s, or your partner's, circumstances, you must let us know as it could affect your eligibility or entitlements.
