Element 528 - OS-HELP payment amount


Element 528 was included as part of the Higher Education Student data collection under the new policy and program initiatives introduced under the Opens in a new window: Higher Education Support Act 2003 (HESA) which was implemented in 2005. The element was included on the ECAF file but was removed from the collection in 2013 because electronic Commonwealth Assistance forms were no longer required by the Australian Taxation Office.
