Withdrawal dates

Withdrawal without financial and academic penalty dates 2020

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.

Fee due date

This is the date that your tuition fees are due and is stated on your statement of account on SIMO. Failure to pay your fees by this date may result in services being revoked and/or an encumbrance being placed on your record. 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.

Census dates

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 the Student Hub 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.

Academic penalty dates

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To withdraw from a unit(s) without incurring a fail for the unit(s), with a grade of WF (withdrawn fail), you must do so by this date (contact the Student Hub for more information). This applies to all courses except VET, honours, research masters or doctoral thesis units.
