Importance of the Census date
What is the importance of the census date?
The Census Date is normally the last day that you can withdraw from a unit without financial liability.
For domestic students, if you withdraw by the Census Date of a unit and you have paid your tuition fees or student contribution, you will receive a full refund for the unit. If you have deferred payment through a Commonwealth Loan Scheme, you will not incur a FEE-HELP or HECS-HELP debt for the unit.
Every unit offered at UWA has its own Census Date. The Census Dates for standard semesters are:
- Semester 1 = 31 March
- Semester 2 = 31 August
Please check the Census Dates for all units in which you are enrolled, and regularly check your enrolment on studentConnect.
