If you are unable to pay either the reinstatement or application fee you can request a waiver to allow your application to be considered by the department. Please provide as much information as possible in order that we may consider your request.
We normally only waive the administrative fee for students who are faced with persistent financial hardship, particularly those students who are resident in countries where armed conflict is prevalent and / or who are unable to gain access to banking services. We are unable to waive the fee for students with sufficient savings / income or who are facing temporary cash flow issues. Refugees, asylum-seekers, individuals with humanitarian protection and discretionary leave to remain and stateless persons are encouraged to submit an application for a fee waiver.
If your request is granted you will then be able to submit your application online without paying the fee. In some cases we may request documentary evidence to support your waiver. Please do not submit this form until you have uploaded all the required documents to your application.
