Fitzroy 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 means.

Key date

Explanation

Enrolment Deadline

(International Students)

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 Student Portal or via Student Services until this deadline.

  • 12 week study period - you can do this up to the end of week two.
  •  6 week study period - you can do this up the end of week one.

You will receive a “Withdrawn Delete” notation on your student record.

Census Date

(Domestic Students)

This is the deadline for Domestic students to withdraw from a subject without financial or academic penalty. For 12 week 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.

Census Date

(International Students)

This is the deadline for International students to withdraw from a subject without financial or academic penalty. This is typically fourteen days prior to the commencement of the trimester.

Academic Withdrawal Deadline

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 Instead your transcript will show “Withdrawn Not Fail”.

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 If you withdraw from a subject by this date, you will still have to pay the fees, and your transcript will show “Withdrawn Fail”.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

Results Release Date

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