Compulsory Student Services Fee

The compulsory Student Services Fee (SSF) covers provision of a broad range of campus services to students.  The fee is allocated to the following services, in consultation with students via the Student/Management Forum:

  1. 50%  -    Counselling services and pastoral care (student orientation, Student Support and Raise EAP)
  2. 26%  -    Employment and careers information, advice and guidance (Student Support and HR)
  3. 16%  -    Sports, recreation and cultural activities (gym, sports teams and cultural events)
  4. 4%    -    Students’ associations and clubs (Student Council, student forums and whanau events)
  5. 2%    -    Financial support and advice
  6. 2%    -    Health Services

The SSF in 2022 is charged at a rate of $300.00 per year, or $30.00 per month or part thereof, and covers 91% of the direct costs of these services which are subsidised by AIS.

The Student/Management Forum, comprising student representatives from each programme, meets once a trimester to provide input on non-academic matters including consultation on the SSF. 2022 forum timings are 2.30 pm on 11 March, 1 July and 21 October in Room M205 or on MS Teams. Students are invited to contact Rochelle Amara, Student Support Manager, at rochellea@ais.ac.nz to register their interest in attending the forum, or to provide input.
