Changing your enrolment

Further information


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

You will 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 Student Advising Office you may be permitted to add a unit after the closing date. To do this:

  1. Ask your unit coordinator to sign the 'Academic Recommendation' box on the Special Approval Form (below).
  2. Present the Special Approval Form to your Student Advising Office, via askUWA or in person.
  3. If the Student Advising Office approves the request, they will provide you with a Change of Enrolment Form to complete and sign. A $50 encumbrance  will be added to your enrollment, and this can be paid at Student Administration.
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.


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