What is an electronic Commonwealth Assistance Form (eCAF)?

Your electronic Commonwealth Assistance Form (eCAF) is a request for government assistance for your tuition fees. If you are a domestic student studying in Australia, you must submit an eCAF before the due date of the study period if you wish to:

  • Accept a Commonwealth supported place (CSP)
  • If eligible, apply for a HELP loan to pay your tuition fees

Once you have submitted a valid eCAF, it will remain valid for the duration of your course. If you change courses, you must submit a new eCAF before the due date of the first study period of the new course.

You can access and complete your eCAF by logging into your OASIS account and navigating to eStudent, where you will locate the My eCAFs tab. You can also find a short demonstration on how to complete the form on the eStudent help website.
