The student services and amenities fee (SSAF) is used to maintain and enhance services and amenities that improve your experience as an RMIT student. The SSAF helps ensure that RMIT can maintain its support for initiatives that deliver an outstanding experience for all students.
Will I be charged?
You can expect to be charged the SSAF if you are studying an RMIT program in Australia and are charged a tuition fee by the University.
This includes exchange students (i.e. RMIT students studying at an overseas institution with which RMIT has a formal reciprocal agreement).
If you are an eligible local student enrolled in a program under the Free TAFE initiative, you will not be charged a tuition fee but will need to pay the SSAF.
You will not be charged the SSAF if you are enrolled in a program that is delivered fully-online.
Local HDR students in an RTP place are not currently charged the SSAF.
If you are unsure about whether you are required to pay the fee, please contact RMIT Connect.
How much will I be charged?
Higher education and Foundation Studies students
You will be charged on a pro-rata basis each semester at the rate per credit point for each course you are enrolled in, up to the annual maximum for the year.
If you are a local higher education student, you may be eligible for the SA-HELP loan scheme that allows you to defer paying the cost of the SSAF upfront.
Vocational education students
You will be charged on a pro-rata basis each semester at the rate per nominal hour for each course you are enrolled in, up to the annual maximum for the year.
If you are a vocational education student and you are eligible for a concession on your tuition fees, you are also eligible for a concession on the SSAF.
