Students who change their address should change their address online through StudentConnect. If required, off-campus students should also amend their nominated examination location. The University cannot accept responsibility for problems that occur as a consequence of incorrect or inadequate address information having been provided. Where an off-campus student's change of address necessitates a change of examination location, it is the student's responsibility to advise the Assessments Group of that change of address by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org. Students should check address details as recorded by the University through StudentConnect.
Students who change their name must notify Customer Service via email at email@example.com and attach certified documentation to support the change, such as a marriage certificate or Registry of Births, Deaths and Marriages Change of Name form.
Students who wish to change their enrolment in any trimester of study are required to vary their enrolment online through StudentConnect or by completing an Enrolment Variation form (108 KB). Enrolment variations must be consistent with the relevant course and unit rules and it is therefore strongly recommended that students seek course advice prior to varying their enrolment. Variations to enrolment may result in the reassessment of fees. In this situation, students should check their revised fees on StudentConnect.
Before changing their enrolment, students should check whether the changes will affect their Youth Allowance eligibility. They should also ensure that HECS-HELP, FEE-HELP and University deadlines are met (refer to the Important Dates).
Students are responsible for ensuring that their enrolment is correct in every detail. Any changes to enrolment must be made by the relevant dates, otherwise academic and financial penalties may be incurred.
Students should note that if they withdraw from a course/unit after census date, they will be liable for the full amount of their fees including student contributions and tuition fees.
Intermission refers to the suspension of studies up to a maximum of 12 months whilst keeping a place in the course. Please note intermission is normally granted for a maximum period of 12 months throughout the duration of a course.
Students who wish to intermit their studies for financial, health or other reasons should discuss their request with their Enrolment Officer.
International students are also required to make an appointment with an International Student Adviser (ISA) to discuss Intermission. Click here for ISA Contact details. To apply for Intermission, please login to StudentConnect. Before applying, please see our online guide (422 KB). If you have any problems applying online, please use our Enrolment Variation form (108 KB) instead.
The outcome of an application for intermission may be confirmed by clicking on View course in StudentConnect. Ten working days should be allowed for the application to be processed.
In order to avoid financial and academic penalties it is necessary to adhere to the deadlines published in the Important Dates. Students should note that if they intermit from a course after census date, they will be liable for the full amount of their fees including student contributions and tuition fees.
It is advisable to discuss information with a careers counsellor at the University to plan and make full benefit of the period of intermission.
If you wish to apply for a course transfer please complete an Application for Course Transfer and submit it to the faculty of your first preference.
Submission of the application does not guarantee a course transfer and selection will be based on academic performance and availability of places.
Before applying, you should contact a Faculty Course Adviser for advice. You may also need to seek advice from with the Selection Officer, of the intended course. You can find out who the Selection Officer is through your faculty support office or course adviser.
Remember - You must still re-enrol in your existing course by the published deadline, even though the outcome of your transfer may be pending.
