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