Australian Defence Force Academy textbooks

If you are studying at the Australian Defence Force Academy, you may get help with the costs of buying textbooks.

Who can get help with the cost of buying textbooks?

You may get help with the costs of buying textbooks if you are:

  • a trainee undergraduate, and
  • posted to the Australian Defence Force Academy.

How much help can I get with the cost of buying textbooks?

Defence will provide any compulsory textbook for your course.

If you have to buy the textbook, Defence may give you a refund.

You can't get a refund for textbooks which are recommended, not compulsory.

Important information

As the name suggests, this Member's Guide is designed as a guide to help you understand how your pay and conditions work. It is not a legal document. Therefore, if there is any conflict between the Member's Guide and Defence Determination 2016/19, Conditions of Service (and the Determinations made by the Defence Force Remuneration Tribunal), as compiled in PACMAN, PACMAN is the authority.

This Member's Guide does not incorporate or make provision for members on a flexible service determination.
