If you’re starting tertiary study next year, you can claim a student payment up to 13 weeks before your course starts.
You don’t need to wait for a formal course offer to claim. You can tell us your first preference in the claim and update it later if your plans change.
Claiming now means you’re more likely to have your claim finalised before you start study.
If your course starts in Semester 1, you can claim now using your Centrelink online account linked to myGov.
