You can now claim the Tertiary Access Payment for 2023

18 January 2023

If you’re moving from a regional or remote area for tertiary study, you could get a one-off payment up to $5000.

The Tertiary Access Payment helps with the cost of moving for study after year 12. It could be to a university, TAFE or another private education provider.

The one-off payment is either:

  • $5,000 in 2 instalments, if you’re moving from an outer regional or remote area
  • $3,000, if you’re moving from an inner regional area.

Claim now for 2023, even if your course hasn’t started yet. You can only claim the payment in your first year of tertiary study.
