SSAF Expenditure

What is SSAF?

SSAF (Student Services and Amenities Fee) aims to provide a balanced, practical approach to funding campus services and amenities of a non-academic nature, such as sporting and recreational activities, employment and career advice, child care, financial advice and food services.

How much?

In 2019 SSAF will be charged each term of study to a maximum of $303 for the year (full time study) and $227 (part time study).

Bills

You will be invoiced up front (separately from your course fees) at the beginning of each term you are enrolled. Once the SSAF bill is generated you will be notified via email that your SSAF bill is available in myHub.

Payment options

Australian citizens and permanent humanitarian visa holders (resident in Australia) can

  • pay the full SSAF amount up front
  • pay some of the SSAF upfront and get a SA-HELP loan for the remainder; or
  • apply for a SA-HELP loan for the full SSAF amount

All other students must pay the SSAF up front by the payment due date.

Please note: students who are enrolled in non-award and cross-institutional study are not eligible for SA-HELP loan assistance and must pay the SSAF in full to the University.
