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 means.

Key date Explanation

Academic Withdrawal Date 

(Higher Education 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 Instead, your transcript will show “Withdrawn Not Fail”. 

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. 

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.

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.

International liability deadline

This is the deadline for international students to withdraw from a subject without financial and academic penalties. This is 14 calendar days before the commencement of the study period.

Results Release Date

Your results will be finalised by Examination Committee and published in your Student Portal on this date. It is usually 2 weeks after the end of the study period.

Withdrawal Deadline 

(Higher Education 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 If you withdraw from a subject by this date, you will still have to pay the fees, and your transcript will show “Withdrawn Fail”.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”.
