VET FEE-HELP Student Entry Procedure*
How will this affect me?
A student’s eligibility to access VET FEE-HELP (VFH) is not the same as their ability to meet program entry requirements. To be eligible to apply for VFH, students must be assessed as being academically suitable to undertake a Diploma, Advanced Diploma, VE Graduate Diploma or VE Graduate Certificate. To meet these requirements, a student must either:
- provide a copy of their Senior Secondary Certificate of Education as awarded by an agency or authority of any State or Territory; or
- complete an approved literacy and numeracy assessment and display competence at or above Exit Level 3 in the Australian Core Skills Framework in both reading and numeracy. RMIT must also be confident that the assessment has been completed independently and that the student has the necessary competence.
See RMIT’s VE Enrolment Guide for further information. RMIT will inform you of your results as soon as practicable, and you are required to bring the completed document to your enrolment session. Your results will be retained as per RMIT policy, and may be provided to the Commonwealth if requested.
A student who does not meet academic suitability requirements is not eligible to apply for a VFH loan, but they may be considered for a place if they meet all other program entry requirements.
*From 1 January 2016 the Higher Education Support Act 2003 and the associated Higher Education Support (VET) Guideline 2015 require that all domestic students wishing to apply for a VET FEE-HELP (VFH) loan are assessed for academic suitability.
