Description

The Tertiary Access Payment (TAP) is a one off payment of up to $5,000. It’s to help eligible students with the cost of moving to study. This is for study after you’ve finished year 12 or equivalent. 

To get the payment you need to meet some rules. These include: 

  • moving from a regional or remote area for tertiary study 

  • starting tertiary study directly after finishing year 12 or equivalent with no gap year. 

Eligibility criteria 

TAP is available for school leavers who: 

  • meet Australian citizenship or residency requirements 

  • are from an inner regional, outer-regional, remote or very remote area (defined using the Australian Statistical Geography Standard - Remoteness Area classification) 

  • are undertaking a Certificate IV or above, at least 75 per cent of fulltime study load with a minimum duration of a year, in the year following completion of Year 12 or equivalent 

  • are studying face to face, or in dual delivery method, for at least part of the course 

  • are 22 years of age or under at the time they commence their course 

  • relocate to study at an education provider or Regional University Centre at least 90 minutes by public transport from their family home 

  • parent(s) or guardian(s) have a combined income of $250,000 or below (or be exempt from meeting this requirement). 

The income threshold will enable many students with two working parents or guardians to qualify for the payment. 

How to apply 

Students relocating to study at a university, non-university higher education provider (NUHEP) or a vocational education and training (VET) provider must apply through Services Australia from 1 January 2022.
