Refunds and system credits if you choose to withdraw from a unit(s) after the census date

I have withdrawn from a unit(s) after the census date. Can I get my fees or student contribution refunded or credited to future study periods?

The information below is applicable to Domestic Students only.

You can only apply for a refund in "special circumstances" when you have withdrawn from a unit after the census date.

If you withdraw after the census date due to "special circumstances" you can submit a Remission Application Form to apply to have your:

  • HECS-HELP balance re-credited
  • Up-front payments of student contributions refunded
  • FEE-HELP balance re-credited
  • Tuition fees refunded

Refund of associated up-front student contribution payments and or remission of associated HECS-HELP & FEE-HELP debts are not automatic but rather rely on your circumstances and you meeting certain conditions set out by the Commonwealth. Page 2 of the application outlines the condition and requirements for remission of fees.

Note: The University is not permitted to remit SA-HELP debts. If you receive remission of your tuition fees due to special circumstances you remain liable for the Student Services and Amenities Fee.
