You should be aware of the census or reporting dates when enrolling in a unit, as these indicate when you can withdraw from a unit without incurring a penalty (either financial or academic) for that teaching period.
It is imperative to make note of penalty dates applicable to your course.
The Census Date is the date on which your enrolment is deemed to be finalised. After the Census Date you will be charged for your course and start accumulating a HECS-HELP and FEE-HELP debt, and your Student Learning Entitlement is consumed. To withdraw from a unit(s) without incurring the cost for that unit(s), you must do so by this date (contact Student Central for more information).
The census date is not the date that your fees are due, for fee due dates, please visit the Money Matters - When to Pay page.
The Academic Penalty Date is the date on which your academic participation in a unit(s) is confirmed.
To withdraw from a unit(s) without incurring a fail for the unit(s), with a grade of WF (withdrawn fail), you must do so by this date (contact Student Central for more information). This applies to all courses except VET, honours, research masters or doctoral thesis units.
