Tertiary Access Payment

Did you finish Year 12 in 2022, and are you considering a move from regional or remote Australia to continue your studies? You might be eligible for a payment starting from $3,000 up to $5,000 from the Tertiary Access Payment (TAP).

About the TAP

Moving away from home can be expensive and the TAP helps ease the costs for eligible school leavers moving to study. The TAP can help pay for things like rent or bond for accommodation, household bills, groceries, textbooks, or other study supplies.

The Tertiary Access Payment is a payment of $3,000 or $5,000. How much you can get depends on where your family home is located.
