Student Hub: Key Dates


Understanding key dates

Different courses have different study periods (trimesters, terms) but they all have key dates that you need to know about. Read on to understand what each of the key dates mean.  

Key date 

Explanation 

Enrolment Deadline (International) 

If you are an International student, you must finalise your enrolment 14 days before each study period starts. You can then change class times or swap subjects up until the Enrolment Change deadline, but you cannot reduce your number of subjects after this date. (If you do, you will be charged the full fees). Remember – you must study full time.  

Enrolment Change Deadline 

You can add subjects, or change subjects, or change class times using the online subject selection tool or via Student Services until this deadline. For trimesters, this is the end of week 2. For shorter terms, this is the end of week 1.  

Census Date (Domestic) 

This is the deadline for Domestic students to withdraw from a subject without financial or academic penalty. For trimesters, this is the end of week 3. For shorter terms, this is during week 2. 

If you are a Domestic student, and you withdraw from a subject by this date, you will not have to pay the subject tuition fees, and the subject will not appear on your transcript. Subject withdrawals after this date will not result in a refund. 

Academic Withdrawal Deadline 

(Higher Ed only) 

This is the deadline for you to withdraw from a subject without academic penalty. If you withdraw from a subject by this date, you will still have to pay the fees, but you won’t receive a Fail grade. Instead your transcript will show “Withdrawn Not Fail”. 

Withdrawal Deadline 

(Higher Ed only) 

This is the deadline for you to withdraw from a subject. If you withdraw from a subject by this date, you will still have to pay the fees, and your transcript will show “Withdrawn Fail”. 

If you withdraw from a subject after this date your transcript will show “Fail”. 

Results Release Date Your results will be finalized by Examination Committee and published on MyAccount on this date. It is usually 2 weeks after the end of the study period.

Find the key dates that apply to your individual enrolment by going to your My Account or checking the Blackboard Key Dates page for each of your subjects.
