Student Services & Amenities Fee (SSAF) - For Diploma students only

Please note that UNSW Sydney reserves the right to vary student fees at any time during enrolment in line with relevant legislation.

The SSAF was implemented in 2012 following a legislative change allowing Universities to collect a fee, to support the delivery of student services.

The SSAF contributes to the provision of amenities and non-academic services for students. These include: counselling, employment, orientation, career advice, child care, financial advice, health services, food services, sporting and recreational activities, student advocacy and legal services. The SSAF has also allowed the University to increase its funding of Arc, the University’s student organisation.

What you pay
SSAF is charged and payable on a term basis.

Full-time $102.65 per term

Part time $75.95 per term
