Pre/co-requisite requests or issues?

Select what subjects your are able to online then:

If you have been approved for a pre/co-requisite waiver, please send an email to the Student Services (, attach the approval and the CRN (see below) in your email, from here the team can unblock the issue and you can use your student portal to enrol into the subject.

If you want to request a pre/co-requisite waiver, email your program director/senior lecturer for permission, then email the approval along with a the CRN (see below) of the subject to Student Services(

What is a CRN? The CRN stands for Class Reference Number, this is a 3 digit number that corresponds with the class you would like to enrol into. The CRN can be found on your student portal and will show up as an error message when you go to enrol into the subject that has a pre/co-requisite block. Please contact Student Services for more information. 


How to log in

Step 1: Go directly to the Student Portal (bookmark this link). There is also a button link from the homepage of the Fitzroy Student Hub (where you are right now).

Step 3: Your Student Portal will appear! Navigate the menu items by selecting the “waffle” (four squares) in the top left corner, or use the quick links listed.

What is my EFTSL?

EFTSL stands for "Equivalent Full Time Student Load" and is a measure of the study load for one year for a student undertaking a course on a full-time basis.

You can work out each subject EFTSL by using this formula - subject credit points divided by the maximum credit points for the year = EFTSL for the subject

Think Education Courses
  • 120 credit points (12 subjects) per year
  • Each subject = 10 credits points
  • Therefore - 10/120 = 0.83 EFTSL per subject

A full time study load for each trimester is 4 subjects x 0.83 = 3.32 EFSTL


Torrens University Australia
  • 96 credits points (9 subjects) per year
  • Each subject = 12 credit points
  • Therefore - 12/96 = 0.125 EFTSL per subject

A full time study load for each trimester is 3 subjects x 0.125 =  0.375 EFSTL

What happens after registering in classes?

After you successfully register in your classes, you should expect to receive your invoice via your Office 365 student email.

If you are on Fee-Help, you will receive a link in an email from the government. Please complete the eCAF form as soon as possible to ensure that you are successfully approved for Fee-Help. If the approval is not completed before Census date, you will become liable for your fees for the term.

If you are paying upfront, you will see the fee amount and due date on the invoice.

Payment can be made via EFTPOS (cheque, savings or credit) on campus, by credit card over the phone, via BPAY or via Flywire (for International students). Please contact Student Services if you have any questions about making payments.

When are my subject fees due?

Your due date for payment will be stated on your invoice!

You must pay the full amount by the due date or access to online platforms may be blocked.

How do I pay my fees upfront?

An invoice for your subjects will be sent to your student email account. This will list the fees, amount owing and due date.

For trimester 2, your payment options include: 

  • EFTPOS (cheque, savings or credit) on campus
  • Credit card over the phone
  • BPAY - your unique BPAY customer reference number (CRN or Ref) will be on your invoice
  • Fly Wire (for international students) 

In the future, online payments through your Student Portal will be available.

If you are on FEE-HELP, and would like to pay for some or all of your subjects upfront, you can do so using any of the methods above.

If you need any help, please contact your Student Services team as soon as possible.

Paying for subjects via FEE-HELP

If you have selected Fee-Help as your payment option then your balance will show on the invoice sent to your student email account.

You can also opt to pay upfront for part or all of your subjects upfront. Refer to the "Paying fees upfront" tab for more info.

I selected Fee-Help for the first time. Why do I have an invoice which shows that a balance is due? 

If you have selected Fee-Help as your payment option for the first time, your balance will still show on the invoice sent to your student email account. 

  • You will need to check your student email to complete your Fee-Help application form (eCAF), and have been approved to be on FEE-HELP by the government.
  • Once the approval is received by us, your student finances will be re-processed and you will receive a re-issued invoice with an amended balance, to show that you do not have outstanding fees.

Important note: Please make sure that you complete the eCAF form as soon as you receive the email and link from the government!

Can't find the eCAF email? Check junk mail and clutter in your student email account.
