Withdrawal and refund dates for international students in their first study period

If you are an international student enrolled in your first study period the refund dates, percentages, and academic outcomes applicable to your enrolment are detailed below.

The refund amounts are:

  • A 90%* refund, if you withdraw or intermit your course at least 4 weeks prior to the start of the teaching period. The retention of 10% of the assessed tuition fees for commencing students is in recognition of the additional costs involved in administering the initial stages of enrolment.
  • If you withdraw between 4 weeks prior to the start of the teaching period and the census date, Deakin will retain 50% of your total assessed tuition fees and you will be eligible for a refund of any remaining credit balance.
  • If you withdraw from a unit/s prior to census date and still have an active enrolment (of at least one credit point), no penalty will apply. If you withdraw from all units and do not have an active enrolment for the study period, Deakin will retain 50% of your total assessed tuition fees and you will be eligible for a refund of any remaining credit balance.
  • No refund is available if you withdraw after census date.

Total assessed tuition fees = this is the full amount of all tuition fees for the applicable period and does not include any scholarship or bursary payment.

If you remain enrolled in your units after the census date and successfully pass your units, you cannot have your fees refunded.

If detailed in your Letter of Offer, a non-refundable amount will be retained if you withdraw from your studies prior to the census date of the first teaching period in your award course. Please refer to your Letter of Offer for details.

Before withdrawing from a unit seek advice

If you withdraw from a unit or discontinue or intermit your course, you may become liable for fees and/or an academic penalty, depending on the date you withdraw or change your enrolment.

Before changing your enrolment you should check the relevant dates and seek advice from a student adviser.
