Student Services and Amenities Fee (SSAF) Allocation Report

Created:

The Higher Education Support (Student Services, Amenities, Representation and Advocacy) Guidelines 2022 requires higher education providers who charge a student services and amenities fee (SSAF) to provide a publicly available report on SSAF allocations and actual expenditure for the year as part of their annual reporting and in the form approved by the Minister. The Student Services and Amenities Fee (SSAF) Allocation Report is the form approved by the Minister.

This Report was developed to allow for greater transparency and consistency in reporting on SSAF allocations and expenditure.

The Report must be made publicly available by higher education providers within six months of the end of their financial reporting period (by 30 June or 31 December).
