Do you need more help?

Where parents live at different addresses but have equal responsibility for the care of the child, the parent the child lives with for most of the time should submit the application. If the student lives with each parent for equal time, the parent the child is staying with at the time of submitting the application should apply.

Please apply only once for the same student. Duplicate applications will be deleted.

If you forget your password, select 'Forgot your password?' under the login button. Enter your email address and click 'Submit' to get an email to reset your password. Previous passwords will no longer be valid.

You can log back into your application dashboard to make updates. Please do not create a new application. Check the due dates for different updates that you can make at Key Dates.
