JCU Brisbane does not have instalment plans. You can make numerous payments of fees up to the due date each trimester. Last payment of total fees must be paid by the due date each trimester.

As a JCU Brisbane student, you must pay the Student Services and Amenities Fee (SSA Fee).  The income from the SSA Fee is used to improve services and facilities on and off-campus.  The SSA Fee is helping to build a better university experience for you.  In October 2011, the Australian Parliament passed legislation allowing universities to charge a student services and amenities fee up to a maximum annual amount (in 2021 this is $313), JCU introduced the SSA fee from 1 January 2012.

If you have made payment by card on campus it takes up to 2 working days to display in your ‘My Finances’.

Payments made from online transfer or overseas can sometimes take weeks to reach the JCU Brisbane account. If you are concerned about the payment not reflecting in your ‘My Finances’, please send a copy of the transaction receipt to

JCU Brisbane does not charge a student when payment is received from an international bank. Your bank may however charge you a fee when making this transfer. Please ask your bank if there will be any transfer charges as this may leave you with an outstanding balance on ‘My Finances’.
