VET FEE-HELP Student Redress Measures

The VET Student Loans Ombudsman (VSLO) in the Office of the Commonwealth Ombudsman is the primary contact point for any person who believes that they have a VET FEE‑HELP debt which they should not have. This includes complaints under the VET FEE‑HELP Student Redress Measures, which allow the Secretary of the Department of Employment and Workplace Relations to re‑credit a student's VET FEE HELP debt if they did not complete the units of study and it is reasonably likely the debt was incurred through the inappropriate conduct of their VET provider.

You must contact the Commonwealth Ombudsman VET Student Loans before 31 December 2023 if you want your complaint assessed under the VET FEE‑HELP Student Redress Measures.

For more information on how to submit a complaint go to the Commonwealth Ombudsman VET Student Loans website.

For more information on the measures go to the VET FEE-HELP Student Redress Measures fact sheet available on the VET Student Loans page of the Commonwealth Ombudsman website.
