The SSAF is charged concurrently upon unit/s enrolment. Students will receive an alert through OASIS as a reminder to generate their eInvoice and to make a payment.

Eligible domestic students who do not wish to pay the Student Services and Amenities Fee (SSAF) upfront may submit an eCAF in OASIS, called SA-HELP. If you receive a SA-HELP loan the amount of SSAF will be added to your accumulated HELP debt held with the Australian Taxation Office (ATO).
