General Regulations

Withdrawal from the Course

A student may withdraw from a course at any time in a semester during their course of study, however, the student needs to be aware of the consequences of such an action.

Students may withdraw without academic penalty only if notice of withdrawal is submitted in writing to the Registrar by 4.00 pm on the Census Date.

If withdrawal occurs in writing up to 4.00 pm on the Census Date the tuition fee will be refunded in full.  A written request to the Registrar in the case of exceptional circumstances (see below) may waive the withdrawal fee. The refund will be paid to the student within four weeks of the date of withdrawal.

If a student withdraws after the Census Date of the unit in question, a Fail grade will be given and tuition fees will not be refunded. If there are exceptional circumstances around this withdrawal a written request needs to be sent to the Registrar seeking a refund and detailing the exceptional circumstances. A full or pro-rata refund may be made in such cases.

A written request for withdrawal due to exceptional circumstances may be accepted as grounds for a total or partial refund of fees subject to the student providing acceptable documentary evidence in support of their claim. Exceptional circumstances may include:

  • Inability to obtain a student visa
  • Illness or disability
  • Failure to meet English language requirements for admission
  • Death of the student or a close family member (parent, sibling, spouse, child)
