Payment options

The SSAF is a compulsory fee. To avoid any disruptions to your enrolment, please make sure you familiarise yourself with your payment options for the SSAF.

Paying up-front

If you choose to pay the SSAF up-front, you have two payment options:

Pay online

You can pay the SSAF online, by visiting the 'My Finances' tab on Student Online. You can view the amount you have to pay and choose to make a payment on the spot.

Login to StudentOnLine

Pay in person

Visit the ASK La Trobe Help Zone / Student Administration office at your campus and make a payment using select credit cards.

Deferring payment (SA-HELP Assistance)

Australian citizens and holders of Permanent Humanitarian Visas are eligible to defer the fee to SA-HELP, similar to HECS-HELP and FEE-HELP.  All other students will need to pay the fee directly to the University.

Eligible students can fill out an SA-HELP form in StudentOnLine before 30 June (Semester 1) or 31 December (Semester 2). These are known as the incurral dates.  All students deferring the fee will be issued a Commonwealth Assistance Notice within 28 days of these dates. You will need to provide your Tax File Number at the time of your loan application.
