Change Cloud (online) exam location

You can request a change to your Cloud (online) exam location. If you change your examination location outside certain dates, you may be charged a fee. Campus based students must sit at the campus of unit enrolment.

Changes to examination locations are subject to certain fees and timelines. You may be required to pay a fee if your exam location is not correctly recorded or you have not nominated an exam location within the required deadline for exam venue changes. It is each student's responsibility to ensure their exam location is correct by checking StudentConnect.

Changing your address on StudentConnect does not change your exam location. Follow the instructions on this page at 'How to change your location'.
