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 an eligible 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.

Please see our How do I complete an Electronic Commonwealth Assistance Form (eCAF)?  FAQ for how to submit your eCAF or watch our demonstration video on the eStudent help website.
