A CHESSN is a Commonwealth Higher Education Student Support Number which is allocated to all students when they first access a Commonwealth Government loan. It is important that students only have one CHESSN, as any student loan they take is recorded against their CHESSN. If you already have a CHESSN, please supply that number. Otherwise, APC Design School will provide you with one during your application process.
If you don’t give your CHESSN to your provider when you enrol in a new course, your provider will use the information on your enrolment form to check if you have already been allocated a CHESSN.
The CHESSN will be phased out in early 2021 and loan information will be recorded against the USI.
