You are eligible for a SA-HELP loan if you are required to pay the Student Services and Amenities Fee (SSAF), and you:
- are an Australian citizen, or
- hold a permanent humanitarian visa and will be living in Australia for the duration of your course, or
- hold a New Zealand Special Category visa and meet the special eligibility requirements for New Zealand citizens
- are enrolled and have a Tax File Number (TFN)
If you are a permanent visa holder or New Zealand citizen and do not meet these criteria, you are not eligible for SA-HELP. You must pay your SSAF in full by the date on your Statement of Account.
