Repay a student loan - How to start
Please read our latest notices
Repaying after leaving school
After finishing school, there is a 6-month non-repayment period. When this period is over, you have to start making payments on your Loan. For information on repayment, review the terms and conditions of your loan or contact the NSLSC.
The 6-month non-repayment period starts after you:
- finish your final school term
- reduce from full-time to part-time studies
- leave school or take time off school
Within 6-months of finishing school, you will receive a package detailing your payment terms and payment options.
