Student Services & Amenities Fee (SSAF)

Payment for the Student Services & Amenities Fee (SSAF) is split across three terms per year to reflect the new academic calendar and is set by the Government.

Annual Enrolment

UNSW has now moved to annual enrolment, which allows you to better plan your studies. Enrolments still open in October for the following academic year, and you are able to enrol in all your courses for the following year. There is now an option to enrol on a term-by-term basis.You have the option to change your enrolment up until the enrolment deadline for each term. Registration for classes open approximately 10 weeks before the start of each term, and you register for classes on a term-by-term basis. Census dates are at the end of week 4.

Graduations

Graduation ceremonies are held three times a year after each main teaching term. This in line with the previous model and allows students to wait less time to participate in their ceremony after passing their last exam:

    • Term 1: 13 weeks from last exam to graduation ceremony
    • Term 2: 13 weeks from last exam to graduation ceremony
    • Term 3: 20 weeks from last exam to graduation ceremony

Start-up Loan

The Start-up Loan is a voluntary $1,035 loan that eligible students may apply for twice each year, from the 1st of January and 1st of July. Under the UNSW3+ calendar, students do not receive their second Start-up Loan before the start of Term 2. UNSW will offer students a UNSW Bookshop bridging loan available from the beginning of June until they receive their second payment in July to cover Term 2 textbooks and resources. Students will need to repay the loan before enrolling in Term 3.
