Criminals will try to target students to steal their tuition fee payments. Please follow the below tips to stay safe:
- Be aware that criminals may contact you pretending to be the University or your Agent. If you are in doubt about a message, contact the University or your Agent to confirm;
- Never share your University password with anyone;
- Be wary of companies offering to make tuition fee payments on your behalf, especially if they are offering a discount. The University has published a list of approved payment methods;
