- About Deakin
In special circumstances, students may be able to apply to have their fees refunded after the census date. This usually applies to students who have requested to take intermission for compelling and compassionate reasons after the census date, but can also apply in other situations where you have withdrawn from a unit after the census date under exceptional circumstances.
A student cannot apply for a re-credit or remission of debt if he or she has successfully completed the unit of study. To be eligible for a re-credit or remission, the student must apply to the University, in writing, within 12 months of the withdrawal date, or, if the person has not withdrawn, within 12 months of the end of the period of study in which the unit was or was to be undertaken.
The University must re-credit the SLE (Student Learning Entitlement) and remit any debt if the provider is satisfied that special circumstances apply to the person
Chapter 5 of the Student Learning Entitlement Guidelines specifies the circumstances in which a provider can be satisfied that special circumstances apply to the person. Applications should include any independent supporting documentation, for example, a letter from the student's doctor or counsellor, to support the student's claims.
You can apply for remission of your debt on the Re-Crediting and Remission Application Form (44 KB) (54 KB)
If you are unsure about your eligibility to apply for a Remission of Debt, please speak to an International Student Adviser for assistance and advice.
