Procedure for withdrawing from units

How do I withdraw from units?

You can withdraw from your units online on or before the census date for the teaching period of that unit via studentConnect.

Process to Withdraw Online:
1. Log on to your studentConnect
2. Under the 'Enrolment' menu, select 'Online enrolment and change of enrolment'
3. Select 'Select your units'
4. Tick the 'discontinue' option against the unit(s) you would like to withdraw from
5. Select 'Proceed to Check Out'
6. Select 'Finish Online Enrolment'

Check that you have completed your enrolment by viewing 'Confirmation' under your 'Enrolment' menu options.


There are a few reasons why you may not be able to from withdraw units online via studentConnect. Please check them to see if they apply to you:

Successful Re-Enrolment
You can only make changes to your enrolment online if you have successfully re-enrolled.

Census Date has passed
You can only withdraw from units online up until the census date of the unit (see below for further instructions)

Cross Institutional, Exchange or Study Abroad Students
You won't be able to make online changes to Cross-institutional or Study Abroad/Student Exchange units (units preceded with ENRL or EXCH). You will need to organise for these to be changed manually. Please contact Student Administration to request a Change of Enrolment Form.

If none of the above applies then please contact Student Administration by using "Email Us" and we will investigate for you.


Withdrawal after the Census Date
If you wish to withdraw from a unit after the census date you must contact Student Administration to request a Change of Enrolment Form. If you are unable to come in person, please use "Email Us" to contact us. You will be financially liable for any units you withdraw from after the census date. You can withdraw without academic penalty via a change of enrolment form up until the academic withdrawal date of the teaching period.

If you wish to withdraw from your units we strongly recommend you seek advice from your Faculty Adviser.
