Submitting a request to access documents
Requests for access to documents held by the University should be sent by email to email@example.com or by mail to:
Freedom of Information Officer
Geelong Waterfront Campus
Locked Bag 20001
Geelong Vic 3220
For the request to be considered valid under the FOI Act, it must be:
(a) in writing - the Request for Access Form (PDF, 139 KB) may be used;
(b) accompanied by the application fee of $28.90; and
(c) sufficiently clear to enable the University to identify the documents to which access is sought.
The application fee may be paid by cheque or money order payable to Deakin University. Credit card payments may be made by telephoning Student Central on (03) 5227 2333 and quoting item code M15.
The University may waive the application fee if payment of the fee will cause the applicant hardship. If you believe that this applies to you, please set out your reasons in the Request for Access Form or by separate email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Your request for access to documents will be acknowledged upon receipt. If your request is deemed valid, you will then be notified of the due date of the decision, normally within 45 days.
