Your Confirmation of Enrolment and access to the Online Learning Platform, will only be issued once all required documentation has been provided to aifc.

Note: VET Student Loan applicants

aifc Student Services will only issue you a VET Student Loans application when certified proof of eligibility (proof of citizenship) has been received. Once this documentation is provided to aifc, we will give the department your enrolment information, including the nearest applicable census date, through the eCAF system. You will then receive an email from the department allowing you to sign into the eCAF system. Once you sign-in, you will need to verify the pre-populated information and complete the mandatory fields. You can then submit the eCAF, which will cause the system to email you a copy of your completed form. You must then give this form to aifc.

You will not receive a Confirmation of Enrolment, or access to the Online Learning Platform, until your VET Student Loan form is completed.
