The department identifies those who are eligible to receive a transportation allowance and those who are eligible to receive a housing allowance. Transportation allowance is only given to students after completion of their registration at UTAS-A.
The list of students eligible for allowances is forwarded to the Finance Department and processed with payment vouchers as per Ministry of Finance rules and regulations. These allowances are directly deposited into the students' bank accounts.
