Consequences of withdrawing from a unit

How do I withdraw from a unit and what effect does this have on my grades and payment for the unit?

The academic and/or financial consequences of withdrawing from a unit depend on the date you withdraw and your circumstances. It is important to familiarise yourself with the teaching periods, census and withdrawal dates plus the important dates published on the Current Students' website. You can also find further information on Changing your enrolment and withdrawing.

You can withdraw from units online via studentConnect up until the census date of the teaching period; each teaching period has a different census date, so it's always important to check. 

After the census date you will need to submit a Change of Enrolment form to Student Administration. You will remain financially liable for the fees of any unit/s you withdraw from. If it is after the academic withdrawal date, there will also be an academic penalty for withdrawing.

If you're unsure which teaching period you are enrolled in, check your enrolment on studentConnect.

If you need advice on whether to withdraw and what the consequences may be and how they will affect you, see your faculty adviser or submit a query online using "Email Us".
