- About Deakin
Students who wish to change their enrolment in any trimester of study are required to vary their enrolment online via StudentConnect.
On-campus students can add new units to their program, but usually only within the first 2 weeks of the start of trimester.
Off-campus students are required to finalise their enrolment approximately 6 weeks before the start of the trimester to allow for mailing of off-campus materials. The only exception for off-campus students will be if they are unable to continue a unit because of prerequisite requirements. In this case permission must be obtained from the Faculty within a week of the official release of results.
Cut off dates apply and fee penalties may be incurred for late variations. Refer to the Important Dates section of the handbook. In making any variation to unit enrolments keep in mind any HECS-HELP or fee obligations, and in particular the date to withdraw from units to avoid HECS liability (CSP) or fee debt.
You can withdraw from a unit at any time, but beware of potential academic and financial penalties. There are three important dates to be aware of.
You will find these dates for each trimester in the Important dates section of the University Handbook.
Any variation to your enrolment may affect your HECS-HELP or fee obligations. You should be aware of the census date by which you must withdraw from units to avoid HECS-HELP or fee liability.
