Late enrolment

A late enrolment is when you add a course after the deadline for changing your enrolment.

Think carefully before seeking approval to enrol late. If you enrol late in a course, this means you are also enrolling after the deletion deadline. So if you decide not to continue in that course, you may not be able to delete the course from your record or receive a refund of fees.

Late enrolments incur a fee of $120 (including GST) per course.

How to apply for a late enrolment or withdrawal

Withdrawals

A withdrawal is when you drop a course after the deadline for changing your enrolment. If you are considering withdrawing from a course, think this decision through carefully and seek help and advice before proceeding.

If you withdraw from a course, please be aware that:

  • You will not receive a refund of fees for the course(s) you withdraw from.
  • The course will remain on your academic record as a Withdrawal (W), which is counted as a 0 (zero) when your GPA is calculated.
  • The course you withdraw from is counted as a failed course for purposes such as student allowance applications and satisfactory progress regulations.
  • If withdrawing from a double-semester (A & B) course, you must withdraw from both A & B components of the course.
