COVID-19 Financial Assistance Program

La Trobe has introduced some new measures to support those students who have been financially affected by the current COVID-19 crisis. We understand that many students are now facing financial hardship and we are committed to doing everything we can to help. 

The La Trobe University COVID-19 Financial Assistance Program is available to all currently enrolled onshore students struggling with the costs of living and accessing technologies required to study online. If you would like to find more information or apply, please go to the application website.

Census date has been moved to 15 April to give international students additional time to pay fees and make changes to their enrolment.  

If you can pay your full fees by 30 April, you do not need to apply for a payment plan.  

If you cannot pay your fees by 30 April, you will need to apply for a Fee Payment Plan by completing the online application and attaching your personal statement. Your personal statement needs to clearly explain the reason why you cannot pay your fees by 30 April.

Please note that a portion of your fees will need to be paid by 15 April, with the remaining amount to be paid by 25 May.  

For any questions or to discuss further support options, please contact La Trobe International Student Services on +61 3 9479 1199.
