Tuition Payment Plans

Melbourne Polytechnic offers payment options to help with your tuition fees, so you can get on with your studies. 

If you intend to take on a payment plan for tuition fees, you will be required to enter a contract through Debitsuccess.

Can I apply for a payment plan?

  • Are you enrolling in a Certificate I-IV program?
  • Are you enrolling in a Diploma or Advanced Diploma course but not eligible for a VET Student Loan?

If the answer to either question above is YES, you may be eligible for a payment plan.

If you are enrolling in a Diploma or Advanced Diploma and eligible for the VET Student Loan, a higher education program (degree or post grad qualification), short course, or are an international student in a CRICOS program, YOU CANNOT APPLY for a payment plan.
