- Your parent(s) arbitrarily refuse to contribute to your education-related costs
- Your citizenship status
- Independent status criteria
- Deadline dates
- Funding distribution
If you have extenuating circumstances not covered by these reviews, our team is available to meet with students at the ServiceHub to discuss other options, such as scholarship and bursary opportunities and on-campus jobs. Remember to bring a piece of government-issued ID when you come so we can access your file.
