Changing your enrolment

Further information


You can add or withdraw units, majors or programs after completing your enrolment.

You will, however, be charged for units you are enrolled in at the relevant census date. Therefore, it is your responsibility to ensure that your enrolment is correct. Failure to adhere to these formal deadlines will result in financial and academic liability.

The most common changes can be easily managed by students enrolled in award courses through studentConnect.

Adding a late unit

In exceptional circumstances, and only with the formal approval of your faculty, you may be permitted to add a unit after the closing date. You must:

  1. Ask your unit coordinator and faculty adviser to sign a Special Approval form (below).
  2. Present your signed Special Approval form to Student Administration. Pay the $50 late fee to the cashier to obtain a Change of Enrolment Form.
  3. Fill out, sign and lodge your Change of Enrolment form at Student Administration or your Faculty.
Commonwealth-supported students

Units added late (with faculty approval) after the census date cannot be Commonwealth-supported. You will be charged the full tuition fee for these units and you will not be eligible for HECS-HELP to fund the payment of the units.

Fee paying students

You will not be eligible for FEE-HELP to fund the payment of units added after the census date (with faculty approval).

International students

International students studying at both onshore and offshore campuses must meet the same deadlines and get the same approvals as domestic students. You must check with the Student Administration or your offshore provider to work out whether there are any fee implications before adding any late units with faculty approval.


We recommend that all students regularly check their enrolment using studentConnect.
