Higher Education Adjusted FEE-HELP Live Data Report


The Adjusted FEE‑HELP Live Data Report displays details of adjusted debts and loan fees for a given period. These explanatory notes describe the elements and values used in the calculation of an adjusted FEE‑HELP record in the report.

An adjusted FEE‑HELP debt

FEE‑HELP provides an income contingent loan to eligible fee paying students to pay for all or part of their tuition fees for units of study. Over their lifetime, a student is able to borrow up to the amount of the FEE‑HELP limit (indexed). Repayments do not reset the maximum that can be borrowed.

A FEE‑HELP debt for a unit of study is adjusted through the Student Entitlement Management Engine (StEME). An adjustment occurs when a student exceeds their FEE‑HELP limit by an amount that is less than the total cost of the unit but greater than their remaining FEE‑HELP balance.

Invalidated FEE‑HELP debt

A FEE‑HELP debt for a unit of study is invalidated through StEME when a student has exceeded their FEE‑HELP limit and they have no FEE‑HELP balance remaining.

Invalidated units of study are not included in this report. Only information related to an adjusted FEE‑HELP debt is displayed.

Scope of the report

The following student records are included in this report:

  • Unit of study records for students who are eligible to access FEE‑HELP:
    • [E490 = 230, 231, 232, 233]


  • Deleted records are excluded from these reports
  • Only current census dates are included as part of the report, future census dates are not included, i.e. E601 is NULL or greater than E489.
  • Non higher degree by research students (E310 not equal to 02, 03) who have withdrawn from their course on, or before, the census date (E489), are excluded from these reports
    • i.e. if E601 is null, or greater then E489, or E310 is 2 or 3, then IsWithdrawn = 0, otherwise IsWithdrawn = 1
