Avoid your Austudy claim getting rejected

27 July 2022

Here’s the top 3 reasons your claim may get rejected, and how to avoid them.

You’re not a full-time student

You usually need to be studying 75% or more of your course’s full time study load to get Austudy. You can check this with your course provider.

You’re missing documents

We may ask you for supporting documents to progress your claim. You need to supply them within 14 days to avoid rejection.

There’s a better payment for you

If we reject your claim for this reason, we’ll let you know. There may be a payment more suitable for your situation.
