Simply put, a Commonwealth Supported Place (CSP) is a place at Monash which is partially subsidised by the government.
The government pays a portion of your course fees, with the student paying the rest in the form of a Student Contribution Amount (SCA).
The good news is that the SCA can be covered by a HECS-HELP loan from the government.
As of 2021, the HELP loan limit is $108,232 -- but this rises to $155,448 for medicine.
It’s important to note that a HECS-HELP loan only covers course fees -- it doesn’t cover things like course materials or accommodation.

To get a HECS-HELP loan to cover the rest, you’ll need a Tax File Number (TFN) and submit a Request for Commonwealth Support and HECS-HELP form by census date -- but don’t worry, we’ll supply one of these in plenty of time.
We go into more detail on this on our dedicated Commonwealth Supported Place (CSP) page but if you’d rather speak to somebody you can get in touch with Monash Connect.
In addition, there have been some changes in CSP for certain pre-2010 courses, which you can read about here.
