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.
