Understand your current liability and payment options

Your current liability

Current Liability refers to the balance of your financial liabilities, including tuition fees, the Student Services and Amenities Fee (SSAF), payment plan fees and student loans. It does not include Library fines. Tuition fees are calculated at least two weeks prior to the start of teaching each term.

Information about your current liability is displayed in the centre column of myUNSW beneath the heading My Student Information

  • Log into myUNSW  and select the My Student Profile button.
    • If you are in debit, that is, you have a current liability to be paid or an amount which has not yet deferred to your HELP loan, the centre column My Student Information will show 'Your current liability is $X,XXX.XX.'
    • If the centre column My Student Information shows 'Your current liability is X,XXX.XX. Credit.', this means that your payment has been received.
    • If you have a zero balance, that is, no liability to be paid and no overpayment, the centre column My Student Information will show 'You currently do not have an outstanding liability.'
