In response to the significant disruptions caused by COVID-19, La Trobe University is working hard to find ways to support our international students during this time. As announced by MyLatrobe, International students can apply for a refund of half of the Semester 2, 2020 Student Services and Amenities Fee (SSAF). This means that $77 of the $154 SSAF which is included in your tuition fees will be refunded to you if you follow the below application instructions and meet the eligibility criteria.
How to Apply
To receive the refund you must:
• Be enrolled for Semester 2, 2020
• Have paid your fees
• Include an Australian Bank Account
• International sponsored students (students who receive financial assistance from a government, organisation or company (not private individuals, relatives or benefactors) to study at La Trobe where their sponsor will generally pay tuition fees on their behalf.)
Your submission will be processed within 20 working days. However, it may take longer to appear in your bank account. Should you have any questions, please contact International Student Services at 03 9479 1199 or submit a question online via ASK La Trobe.
