1.1.C.80 Category 2 student (SFSS)
No new financial supplement loans are available from 1 January 2004.
For existing loans, a person's loan repayment arrangements will continue unchanged. Remaining loans will be collected via the taxation system.
The following SFSS guideline references remain for historical purposes.
For the purposes of the SFSS, a Category 2 student is a tertiary student who does NOT qualify for the general rate of YA because of the effect of the parental income test, the family actual means test and/or the family assets test.
To be eligible for a Category 2 SFSS loan, a student's combined parental income and/or family actual means (if relevant) must be less than the Category 2 threshold level.
