Student finances


Sometimes it feels like you need a translator to properly understand fees and charges. We try to keep things simple. Here's what you need to know:

There are two types of student fees: (1) course fees and (2) administrative fees.

Course fees are the amounts you're charged for each course you study, while administrative fees include charges like the Student Services and Amenities Fee (SSAF), library fines and late fees.

All students have to pay the SSAF, whether domestic, international, undergraduate or postgraduate – although some students are exempt.

Course fees and the SSAF are both in the 'Financial' section of mySI-net. Make sure you pay these fees by the displayed due date.

If you have any questions about fees, contact a Student Centre.
