Withdrawal after the census date will attract a zero refund of tuition fees and result in a fail grade for the affected subject/s. Refer to our Enrolment Policy and our Student Fees Policy for further details.

The census date is a legislative requirement for all registered Higher Education Providers, which is at least 20% after the start of semester (usually the end of week three after the semester commences). Data on student enrolments after the census date is reported to the federal government as part of Governance Institute’s legislative requirements as a registered Institute of Higher Education.
