TRANSITIONING TO
TERTIARY STUDY
Regardless of whether you are undertaking tertiary study for the first time, gaining further education, up-skilling, or re-training in a different field, moving into tertiary study is a big step and many students can find the transition difficult. To make the most of your tertiary education experience, speak with student administration staff at your approved institution (institution) for all enrolment-related matters and to inform yourself of all the support services available to you.
Top tips for transitioning to tertiary study and HECS loans:

1) Get a TFN early!
• If you want to use a HECS-HELP loan to pay for your study, you must submit your valid TFN (or valid
Certificate of Application for a TFN) by the census date—otherwise, you will not be able to use the loan for that study period.
• If you do not have a TFN yet because you do not have a job, you must apply to the ATO for one.
See section 3.1 for more information.

2) Be aware of your obligations.
• Find out your census date(s). Census dates are critical to requesting HECS-HELP assistance/finalising your payment arrangements so that your enrolment in the CSP is not cancelled. See section 3.3 for more information.
• Find out your institution’s policy for contacting students. If its policy is to contact you by an in-house email system (e.g. a student email account), it is your responsibility to check your email on a regular basis, either on campus or at your local public library.
If you cannot access HECS-HELP assistance or your enrolment in the CSP is cancelled because you missed the census date, claiming you did not have access to email or being unaware that you had to check your email are not acceptable excuses.

HECS-HELP information for 2016

• Find out your institution’s academic probation policy. If you are not progressing satisfactorily in your course, your institution may choose to cancel your enrolment, regardless of whether you already incurred a HECS-HELP debt or made an upfront payment for that study.

3)  ou are responsible for your own
Y
education.
• Due to privacy requirements, institutions cannot disclose information to your spouse, parents, or anyone else about your payment details, HECS loan, attendance or other personal matters.
• If you remain enrolled in a unit past the census date but choose not to attend any classes or hand in any assignments, your institution is not obliged to find out why—and you will incur the student contribution amount or a HECS-HELP debt for that unit.

4) Know who to ask for help.
• Your institution is your number one source of information for all study-related queries. Student administration staff will be able to assist you with all enrolment and administration matters or will direct you to the appropriate area (refer to the Contacts section for other useful contacts).

5) Get involved!
• Most institutions offer an orientation service for new students, in addition to social events and various clubs. Participating in these events are great ways to learn your way around, meet new people and build a support network.
• If you are studying online or by distance, social media pages, blogs and online discussion groups are excellent avenues for connecting with fellow students.

1. WHAT IS A COMMONWEALTH
SUPPORTED PLACE (CSP) AND
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS?
Most undergraduate students at university study in CSPs.
There are considerable benefits for you to be enrolled in a CSP:
• The cost of your education is generally cheaper, as CSPs are subsidised by the Australian Government.
In 2016, you will only have to pay the student contribution amount, set by your institution, for your units of study (fee paying places are not subsidised and fee paying students pay full tuition fees for their study);
• If you are eligible for HECS-HELP assistance, you can choose to use a HECS-HELP loan to pay your student contributions; and
• If you use a HECS-HELP loan, you will not have to make any repayments in the 2015–16 income year unless your income is $54,126 or above.

1.1 Where are CSPs available?
In 2016, CSPs are available at all public universities and selected private institutions. You can find a list of institutions that offer CSPs at Appendix A of the CSP and HELP
Handbook for 2016 at www.studyassist.gov.au.
CSPs are mostly available in undergraduate courses— almost all undergraduate students at public universities are enrolled in CSPs. Some institutions also offer CSPs for postgraduate courses—check with your institution to see if it does.

Commonwealth supported places and
HECS-HELP information for 2016

11

1.2 Am I eligible for a CSP?
To be eligible for a CSP you must be either: an Australian citizen
AND
will undertake, in Australia, at least one unit of study contributing to your course of study
OR
a permanent visa holder (check www.border.gov.au for the list of visa subclasses) or a New Zealand citizen
AND
will be resident in Australia for the duration of your unit

1.3 How do I apply for a CSP?
You apply for a CSP through the Tertiary Admissions
Centre in the state or territory where the institution is located. In some cases, you may be able to apply directly to the institution, but you will need to confirm this with them. Your offer of enrolment will say whether you have been offered a CSP or a fee paying
(non-subsidised) place.
To accept an offer of a CSP, you need to submit a valid Request for Commonwealth Support and
HECS-HELP form to your institution by the census date
(or earlier administrative date). If you do not submit your form by the date specified by your institution, you may lose your offer of a CSP and will have to wait until the next study period (e.g. semester or trimester) to re-apply for a CSP. If you are eligible and intend to apply for a
HECS-HELP loan you will also need to provide your TFN on this form by the census date. see section 3.1.

12

www.studyassist.gov.au

If you did not receive a form with your enrolment offer, you can get them from the student administration office at your institution. Forms can only be obtained from institutions that offer CSPs. Many institutions will allow you to submit a specific electronic version of the form online. Check with the student administration/enrolments offices at your institution if you are unsure about whether to submit a paper or electronic form.

1.4 What if I make a mistake on my form?
You have six weeks from the census date to correct information you have submitted about your entitlement to HECS-HELP, including collecting and submitting the documents you need to prove citizenship status as at the census date.
NOTE: This six-week period cannot be used as an extension to apply for Australian citizenship, submit your form or provide your TFN, which all must be done by the census date. It just gives you the chance to correct information on your form, or to collect and provide the relevant documentation, to prove your eligibility for a CSP as at the census date.

1.5 How much are my student contributions in 2016?
In 2016, the amount you are required to pay for your student contributions depends on your field of study.
Currently the Australian Government groups different areas of study into ‘bands’ and sets a maximum amount that your institution can charge you for each year of full-time study in each band. See Table 1 for more information. To find out how much the Australian
Government contributes to CSPs, see Appendix B of the CSP and HELP Handbook for 2016 at www.studyassist.gov.au. Commonwealth supported places and
HECS-HELP information for 2016

13

You should note that institutions can charge any amount within the specified range and most institutions charge the maximum.
Not all units in a given course of study (e.g. a bachelor degree) are necessarily in the same student contribution band. This means that if your course has units that are from different bands, you will have to take that into consideration as you estimate your student contribution amounts.

14

www.studyassist.gov.au

Table 1: 2016 student contribution amounts per year of full-time study

Student contribution band

Student contribution range
(per EFTSL)

Band 3

Law, dentistry, medicine, veterinary science, accounting, administration, economics, commerce $0 - $10,440

Band 2

Computing, built environment, other health, allied health, engineering, surveying, agriculture, mathematics, statistics, science

$0 - $8,917

Band 1

Humanities, behavioural science, social studies, education, clinical psychology, foreign languages, visual and performing arts, nursing

$0 - $6,256

To calculate the student contribution for a unit, you need to know which band the unit is in and its EFTSL value (if you cannot find this information published on your institution’s website, check with the student administration office).
You can then use the following formula to calculate your student contribution for that unit.
EFTSL value x band range = your student contribution for that unit.
Example only
The unit ‘History A01’ has an EFTSL value of 0.125 and has been classified as Band 1 by the institution, which has set the student contribution amount at $6,256 for one EFTSL.
0.125 x $6,256 = $782 (amounts are rounded down to the nearest dollar)
Therefore, the student contribution for History A01 is $782.

Commonwealth supported places and
HECS-HELP information for 2016

15

1.6 How do I pay for my CSP?
Eligible students may use a HECS-HELP loan (see
Chapter 2) to pay their student contributions. Students who are not eligible for HECS-HELP must pay their student contributions upfront. You should note that, although you have until the census date to finalise your payment arrangements, institutions can set an earlier administrative date for you to finalise your payment. If you have not paid your student contributions by the administrative date, you may be charged a late payment fee. See section 3.3 for information on census and administrative dates.
If you have not paid your student contributions by the census date, your enrolment will be cancelled and you will have to wait until the next study period to re-apply for a CSP.

2. THE HECS-HELP SCHEME
More information about the HECS-HELP scheme, including the eligibility requirements, is available from the CSP and HELP Handbook for 2016 at www.studyassist.gov.au. 2.1 What is HECS-HELP?
HECS-HELP is a loan scheme that assists eligible students enrolled in CSPs to pay their student contributions.
You do not have to use a HECS-HELP loan to pay your student contributions. You can choose to pay all your student contributions upfront to your institution or you can pay some of your student contributions upfront and use a HECS-HELP loan for the rest, or you can use a
HECS-HELP loan for all your student contributions.

2.2 Am I eligible for HECS-HELP?
To be eligible for HECS-HELP you must be either: an Australian citizen
AND
will undertake, in Australia, at least one unit of study contributing to your course of study
OR
a permanent humanitarian visa holder
AND
will be resident in Australia for the duration of your unit

IMPORTANT NOTE FOR NEW ZEALAND SPECIAL
CATEGORY VISA (SCV) HOLDERS
The Australian Government is seeking to amend the Higher Education Support Act 2003 so that certain New Zealand citizens who are Special
Category Visa holders can access a HECS loan.
Visit www.studyassist.gov.au for more information.

Commonwealth supported places and
HECS-HELP information for 2016

17

Need to check your visa subclass?
Your institution will need proof of your visa status to verify eligibility. With your permission and your passport details, institutions registered with the Visa Entitlement
Verification Online (VEVO) can confirm your visa status.
Alternatively, you send your details directly to them, using VEVO’s Send Email function. VEVO is a free, online service that allows visa holders and registered Australian organisations, such as institutions, to check the details and entitlements of a visa. To access the VEVO service, please visit www.border.gov.au/vevo.
If you are not eligible for HECS-HELP, you will need to confirm upfront payment dates and arrangements with your institution directly. If you cannot afford to pay your entire student contributions upfront, contact your institution as some may offer their own payment options or plans.

2.3 How much can I borrow?
There is no limit to the amount you can borrow under the
HECS-HELP scheme.

2.4 Will I be charged interest?
Your debt will be indexed. HECS debts are indexed annually in accordance with the Higher Education
Support Act 2003. The Act provides for indexation, which is based on changes in the Consumer Price Index.
Indexation rates are published on the ATO website, visit www.ato.gov.au/getloaninfo. NOTE: The Australian Government is planning an interest rate pause on the HECS-HELP debts of primary carers of children aged less than five years old who are earning less than the minimum repayment threshold.
Visit www.studyassist.gov.au for more information.

18

www.studyassist.gov.au

2.5 Is there a loan or application fee?
No. There is no loan or application fee for using
HECS-HELP.

2.6 The HECS-HELP discount
Upfront payments to your university of $500 or more receive a 10 per cent discount, known as the
‘HECS-HELP discount’. See the Study Assist website for more information on the HECS-HELP discount.
If you are eligible for HECS-HELP and you make an upfront payment of $500 or more, you will receive a
10 per cent discount. This is known as the HECS-HELP discount. This discount effectively increases the value of your upfront payment (refer to the following examples).
Example only – HECS-HELP discount for full upfront payment Matthew is an Australian citizen. He is enrolled in four units for his Bachelor of Engineering and his total student contributions for the semester will be $4,384.
Matthew is eligible for a HECS-HELP loan but he wants to pay his entire student contributions upfront. To do so, he only needs to pay his institution $3,945 ($4,384 –
10 per cent) by the census date (amount is rounded down to the nearest dollar).
Example only – HECS-HELP discount for partial upfront payment of $500 or more
Grace is a permanent humanitarian visa holder. She is enrolled in four units for her Bachelor of Computing and her total student contributions for the semester will be
$4,384. Grace is eligible for a HECS-HELP loan, but she wants to pay half her student contributions upfront
($4,384 ÷ 2 = $2,192) and use a loan for the remainder.

Commonwealth supported places and
HECS-HELP information for 2016

19

As Grace’s payment is also eligible for the HECS-HELP discount, her payment amount is multiplied by 1.1111 to determine the full value of her payment ($2,192 x 1.1111
= $2,435.53). The HECS-HELP discount has effectively increased the value of Grace’s upfront payment, so she will only need to use a HECS-HELP loan for $1,948
(amount is rounded down to the nearest dollar)

www.studyassist.gov.au

3. APPLYING FOR A
HECS-HELP LOAN
More information about applying for HECS-HELP, including information on enrolling in multiple courses or at different institutions is available from the CSP and
HELP Handbook for 2016 at www.studyassist.gov.au.

3.1 How do I apply for a HECS-HELP loan?
To apply for HECS-HELP, you must submit a valid
Request for Commonwealth support and HECS-HELP form (the form) to your institution by the census date.
Many institutions will allow you to submit a specific electronic version of your form online. Check with the student administration/enrolments office at your institution if you are unsure about whether to submit a paper or electronic form.
Remember: These forms are first used to accept your offer of a CSP—see section 1.3.
If you want to use a HECS-HELP loan to pay for your study, you must submit your valid TFN, even if you do not have a job. This is because repayments on your
HECS debt are made through the Australian taxation system. If you do not provide your TFN or you provide an incorrect one, your form will not be valid and you will not be able to use a HECS-HELP loan for that study period.
If you do not have a TFN, you will need to apply to the ATO for one. When you do so, the ATO will, on request, supply you with a Certificate of application for a TFN. Even before you receive your TFN from the ATO, you can attach your certificate to your form as proof that you have applied for a TFN. You must advise your institution of your TFN within
21 days of receiving it.

Commonwealth supported places and
HECS-HELP information for 2016

21

You must keep your TFN secure. Only provide your TFN or the certificate on or with the actual form in order to pay your student contributions for the specific course(s) of study in which you are enrolled.

3.2 What happens if I want to enrol in multiple courses or I want to change my course or institution?
If you want to enrol in two different courses at the same institution, you must submit a separate form for each course.
If you change your course or institution, you will need to submit a new form for your new course or to your new institution.
You will also need to officially withdraw from any units you have enrolled in and do not wish to continue with, by the census date, so that you do not incur a HECS-HELP debt. Withdrawal does not happen automatically when you transfer to a new course or institution, or when you stop attending classes. See Chapter 5 for information on withdrawing from your studies.

3.3 What is the census date?
The census date is the last day you can:
• submit your form to access HECS-HELP, or
• withdraw from your unit without incurring the debt for that unit (if you have already provided your TFN on the form).
As institutions set their own census dates (within rules set by the Australian Government), census dates will vary across units and institutions. You must contact your institution to confirm the census date for each unit you enrol in and to confirm the exact deadline of the census date (i.e. close of business etc).

22

www.studyassist.gov.au

What is the administrative date?
In addition to the census date, some institutions also set an earlier administrative date for you to complete certain requirements. For example, some may want you to submit your form or withdraw your enrolment by the administrative date so they have time to finalise your enrolment.
If you miss the administrative date, you may have to pay a late enrolment fee or a late withdrawal fee. However, you can still withdraw from a unit by the census date to avoid incurring the cost or debt for that unit.
Check with your institution to find out:
• if they have an administrative date
• the census date(s) for your units of study, and
• the exact deadline of the census date(s) (i.e. close of business etc).

3.4 What if I make a mistake on my form?
You have six weeks from the census date to correct information you have submitted about your entitlement to HECS-HELP, including collecting and submitting the documents you need to prove citizenship status as at the census date.
NOTE: This six-week period cannot be used as an extension to apply for Australian citizenship, submit your form or provide your TFN, which all must be done by the census date. It just gives you the chance to correct information on your form, or to collect and provide the relevant documentation, to prove your eligibility for
HECS-HELP as at the census date.

3.5 How will I know if my application for
HECS-HELP is accepted?
You must contact your institution directly for assistance as forms are processed by institutions and not the
Australian Government.

4. KEEPING TRACK OF YOUR
HECS-HELP LOAN
More information about keeping track of your
HECS-HELP loan is available from the CSP and HELP
Handbook for 2016 at www.studyassist.gov.au.

4.1 Your Commonwealth Assistance
Notice (CAN)
Your institution will send you a CAN, within 28 days of the census date, for each study period that you are using Commonwealth assistance. Your CAN will state how much you have been charged for the units you are enrolled in, the amount of HECS-HELP debt you have incurred for that study period and the value of any upfront payments you have made.
Check your CAN carefully to make sure that:
• the student contributions listed on your CAN are the same as those published on your institution’s website, and
• the CAN doesn’t include any units you withdrew from by the census date.
If you believe the information on your CAN is incorrect, you have 14 days to submit a written application to your institution to request a correction (some institutions may allow for a longer correction period).

4.2 Your Commonwealth Higher Education
Student Support Number (CHESSN) and myUniAssist
You will be allocated a CHESSN when you first apply for admission to your institution or Tertiary Admissions Centre.
Your CHESSN is a unique identification number that remains with you during and after your studies. It helps you, your institution, and the Australian Government keep up to date with information about the Commonwealth

24

www.studyassist.gov.au

assistance for tertiary study that you have used.
Your CHESSN will also be printed on your CAN.
You can use your CHESSN and other personal identifying details to access myUniAssist at www.studyassist.gov.au. myUniAssist provides information on how much Commonwealth assistance you have received (but it will not display information related to study undertaken before 2005). In myUniAssist, you can refer to the Commonwealth supported units tab to find out how much HECS-HELP you have used. As there are limits on the amount of OS-HELP, FEE-HELP and VET FEE-HELP that you use, myUniAssist will also record this information under the relevant tabs. myUniAssist is updated with details about your HECS usage as reported by your institution four times a year.
Given the time delay in reporting data, you may need to add any units you have recently enrolled in/are currently enrolled in (refer to your CAN for the relevant study period) to the information shown on myUniAssist to determine your actual entitlements. myUniAssist does not provide information about the current amount of your accumulated HECS debt as repayments are made to the
ATO and myUniAssist does not contain this information.

4.3 Your HECS account
You can view your loan account and other information, such as your payment reference number (PRN) and voluntary repayment options by:
• logging onto your secure ATO online account, through myGov. For more information visit ATO website at www.ato.gov.au/onlineloanbalance.
• phoning the ATO at any time during the year.
Be sure to have your TFN handy when you call.
The ATO will ask you for it, for security purposes before they disclose any personal information to you.

You must also familiarise yourself with the specific withdrawal policy at your institution.

5.1 What happens if I fail/withdraw from a unit?
If you fail a unit, or you withdraw from a unit after the census date, you are still liable to pay the student contribution for that unit, regardless of whether you attended any classes or handed in any assessment items. If you used a HECS-HELP loan, you will incur a
HECS-HELP debt and if you made an upfront payment, you are not eligible for a refund of that payment.
If you correctly withdraw from the unit by the census date, you will not be liable to pay the cost or incur the debt of that unit. If you had already made an upfront payment of your student contributions, you will receive a refund from your institution.
If you failed the unit or withdrew from the unit after the census date because you became seriously ill or for other special circumstances (see section 5.3), you can apply to your institution to have your HECS debt remitted. Contact your institution directly for information on how to apply for a remission or refund.

5.2 How do I withdraw from a unit?
You need to complete your institution’s formal withdrawal process for every unit that you want to withdraw from by the census date. If the course you are withdrawing from involves enrolment with more than one institution, you will need to withdraw from each institution individually.

26

www.studyassist.gov.au

Contact your institution to ensure you withdraw your enrolment by the census date and in accordance with the required procedures to avoid incurring the cost or debt of the unit.

5.3 Special circumstances
If you withdraw from a unit after the census date because you become seriously ill or for other special circumstances, you can apply to your institution to have your HECS debt removed. There are no provisions under the Higher Education Support Act 2003 to have your debt removed if you have already successfully completed your unit of study.
If you withdraw from a unit after the census date because you changed your mind about studying, you will still be required to repay your HECS debt.
For your institution to be satisfied that special circumstances applied to you, you must be able to prove that the circumstances:
• were beyond your control, and
• did not make their full impact on you until on or after the census date, and
• made it impracticable for you to complete the requirements for your unit(s) of study.
NOTE: You need to submit your application for special circumstances to your institution within 12 months of your withdrawal day. More information about this process and appeal procedures is available from the CSP and HELP
Handbook for 2016 at www.studyassist.gov.au.

6. REPAYING YOUR HECS DEBT
More information about HECS repayments, including how the ATO calculates your compulsory repayment is available from the CSP and HELP Handbook for 2016 at www.studyassist.gov.au.

6.1 When do I start paying back my loan?
Your HECS-HELP debt becomes part of your accumulated HECS debt. The minimum repayment threshold for compulsory repayment is adjusted each year. In the 2015–16 income year, you will be required to make a compulsory repayment if your income is $54,126 or above. Repayments made through the Australian taxation system are called compulsory repayments and continue until you have repaid your whole debt.
NOTE: The Australian Government intends to recover
HELP debt from Australians living overseas to assist in securing the HELP loan scheme into the future. It is proposing a change that will impose HELP repayment obligations on Australians living overseas in a similar way to those who are in Australia. This change is subject to the passage of legislation. Visit www.studyassist.gov.au for more information.

6.2 How much will my repayments be?
The amount you repay each year is calculated as a percentage of your repayment income. The repayment percentage increases as your income increases, but is capped at 8 per cent of your income. The ATO will calculate your compulsory repayment for the year and include it on your income tax notice of assessment.

6.3 Can I make a voluntary repayment?
There are several ways you can make a voluntary repayment, including via BPAY and credit card.
For more information on making a payment, go to www.ato.gov.au/howtopay. Currently, voluntary repayments of $500 or more receive a 5 per cent bonus. This means your account will be credited with an additional 5 per cent of the value of your repayment, not 5 per cent of your outstanding debt.
For example, if you make a voluntary repayment of $500, the bonus increases the value of your repayment so your account will be credited with $525.

6.4 Are repayments tax deductible?
Compulsory repayments are not tax deductible.
Voluntary repayments made by you or someone other than your employer are not tax deductible.
Your employer may be able to claim a tax deduction for voluntary repayments it makes on your behalf, but it may also be liable for fringe benefits tax on the repayments.
For more information, contact the ATO.

6.5 What is the HECS-HELP Benefit?
The HECS-HELP Benefit is a financial incentive offered by the Australian Government to encourage certain graduates to work in specific occupations or in specified locations by reducing their compulsory HECS repayments. The HECS-HELP Benefit is available to eligible graduates of courses in the fields of:
• mathematics, statistics or science,
• education, nursing or midwifery, and
• early childhood education.
The benefit is not a cash payment. It is a benefit that reduces your compulsory HECS repayment
(or the accumulated HECS debt for some early childhood educators). For more information, visit www.studyassist.gov.au or contact the ATO.
The Australian Government has previously announced proposed changes to the HECS-HELP Benefit.
Visit www.studyassist.gov.au for more information.

...Hey hi hello First use Hello, with that spelling, was used in publications as early as 1833. These include an 1833 American book called The Sketches and Eccentricities of Col. David Crockett, of West Tennessee,[2] which was reprinted that same year in The London Literary Gazette.[3] The word was extensively used in literature by the 1860s.[4] Etymology According to the Oxford English Dictionary, hello is an alteration of hallo, hollo,[5] which came from Old High German "halâ, holâ, emphatic imperative of halôn, holôn to fetch, used especially in hailing a ferryman."[6] It also connects the development of hello to the influence of an earlier form, holla, whose origin is in the French holà (roughly, 'whoa there!', from French là 'there').[7] As in addition to hello, halloo,[8] hallo, hollo, hullo and (rarely) hillo also exist as variants or related words, the word can be spelt using any of all five vowels.[citation needed] Telephone The use of hello as a telephone greeting has been credited to Thomas Edison; according to one source, he expressed his surprise with a misheard Hullo.[9] Alexander Graham Bell initially used Ahoy (as used on ships) as a telephone greeting.[10][11] However, in 1877, Edison wrote to T.B.A. David, the president of the Central District and Printing Telegraph Company of Pittsburgh: Friend David, I do not think we shall need a call bell as Hello! can be heard 10 to 20 feet away.

...Who Is Your Inspiration? Hello, my name is Lorenzo Ellison. I am from Watertown, TN. I am a veteran of the United States Navy where I served as an Operations Specialist for 5 years. I deployed to Afghanistan last year as a counterintelligence screener working for Intelitrac. As an Operations Specialist in the Navy I worked with different types of electronics, weapons, and navigational tools. My hobbies are reading, watching football, and playing on my many Apple devices. I am also interested in anything that has to do with the military because I love how all the branches work together for one common goal. My source of inspiration in my life has been my mother. She showed me that no matter how tough things and no matter what challenges face you, you have to know that trouble doesn’t last always. When I was 11, I lost my father to cancer. When he died I could tell that it really affected my mom, as it would any wife that loves her husband, but what she did afterwards is what took me for surprise. She rose to the occasion of raising four boys on her own and making sure we had what we needed. We might not have gotten everything that we wanted, but she made sure we were well taken care. She relocated her job to make sure she was closer to us so that we could all do extra curricular activities and she could be there for us if she needed to be. I am proud of my mom because she raised four boys who have never gone to jail and stayed out of trouble. My oldest brother graduated......

Hello

...Hello The Rush to Globalize How had we gotten into this predicament? By a program of rapid foreign expansion. Although Lincoln had had manufacturing and marketing operations in Canada, Australia, and France for more than 40 years, all three were independent of one another and were treated like colonies. Lincoln was primarily a U.S. company, and its two main plants were—and still are—in the Cleveland area. It was our more recent, much bigger ventures overseas that got us into trouble. Ted dreamed of Lincoln’s becoming a global power. He immediately purchased Harris Calorific, a manufacturer of oxyfuel cutting equipment that had plants in Italy and the United Kingdom. At that time, we also got a sharp wake-up call from the market when ESAB, a major manufacturer of arc-welding products based in Sweden, suddenly bought two midsize manufacturers in the United States. ESAB, which was already operating in the Far East and Latin America, obviously had global ambitions. We feared further incursions on the U.S. market by ESAB, which would be able to use its non-U.S. profits to buy market share. But we could not buy domestic competitors ourselves because of antitrust laws. So we decided to take the battle to ESAB’s markets in Europe and Latin America. Our response would have to be quick—and substantial. In addition, we concluded that we could not export arc-welding machines to many European countries, especially Germany, the major market in Europe. Our distributors, along with our......
