Answer:

When you submit your electronic Commonwealth Assistance Form (eCAF),  select the "Upfront Payment" option. When you have received your Tax File Number (TFN), let the University know so we can update your record.

Please note, provided that you supply a Certificate of Application for a TFN before the census date you will not actually be locked into paying your fees upfront. Your TFN can be supplied by emailing your Student ID number and TFN to ecaf@mq.edu.au
