About TCSI

Image showing how TCSI will help education providers and students


For education providers it will:

  • reduce duplication
  • be simpler and more intuitive to use
  • resolve system deficiencies
  • improve data availability

For students it will:

  • make student claims simpler
  • improve payment accuracy
  • help maintain their student payment to complete their studies

TCSI (pronounced 'taxi') is a joint project to transform how student information is collected.

The Department of Education, Skills and Employment (the department) and Services Australia, are working together with education providers and software developers to build a compatible solution that will provide a seamless experience for providers and students.

Services Australia and the Service Hub have put together a video that gives a high level overview of what TCSI is about. Right click → "Save target as" / "Save link as" to download the video file.

The TCSI solution will replace the Higher Education Provider Client Assistance Tool (HEPCAT) for all education providers and the Centrelink Academic Reassessment Transformation (CART) for universities.
