What is SSAF and why do I have to pay it?Updated 04/02/2021 09.55 AM
SSAF is the Student Services and Amenities Fee, which funds a range of wellbeing support services for all students, whether you study online or on campus.
These services support your physical, personal, cultural, educational and financial wellbeing. They range from clubs, sporting and social events, to employment assistance and study support, medical and mental health services, counselling, advocacy and legal assistance.
The fee is compulsory but you may be eligible to defer your SSAF payment via a SA HELP loan.
The distribution of funds and the services they support are decided in partnership with student organisations. You can have your say on how funds should be allocated, as well as get in touch with your local student organisation to get involved.
See Student Services and Amenities Fee for more information.
