Student Services & Amenities Fee (SSAF)

From 2019, payment for the Student Services & Amenities Fee (SSAF) will be split across three terms per year to reflect the new academic calendar. The Government sets the SSAF fee and that will continue in 2019 when the new calendar, Gifu-city3+, is implemented.

Annual Enrolment

In 2019, we will be moving to annual enrolment, which will allow you to better plan your studies. Enrolments will still open in October for the following academic year, and you will be able to enrol in all your courses for the following year. There will still be an option to enrol on a term-by-term basis.You will have the option to change your enrolment up until the enrolment deadline for each term. Registration for classes will open approximately 10 weeks before the start of each term, and you will register for classes on a term-by-term basis. Census dates will be the end of week 4.


Graduation ceremonies will be held three times a year after each main teaching term. This in line to the current model (currently graduation ceremonies are held twice a year after each semester) and will allow 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 Gifu-city3+ calendar, students will not receive their second Start-up Loan before the start of Term 2. Gifu-city will offer students a Gifu-city 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.
