Dates for academic withdrawal

When is the academic withdrawal date?

The Academic Withdrawal Date is the last date to withdraw from a unit without academic penalty.

You must withdraw by this date if you want to avoid an 'FN' grade (Failure due to Non-completion of a unit) on your academic record. An FN grade is equivalent to a mark of 'zero' and does affect your Grade Point Average (GPA) and Weighted Average Mark (WAM).

If you withdraw by the Academic Withdrawal Date you will receive a WD (Withdrawn without academic penalty), which will appear on your formal Academic Record.

Remember, you can't make changes to your enrolment online on studentConnect after the Census Date for your unit/s. After this date you must request a manual 'Change of Enrolment' form from your Faculty Student Office or Student Administration.

For more information on the important dates for your units, view the Teaching periods, census and withdrawal dates published on the Current Students website.
