Withdrawal dates for current international students
If you are an international student looking to withdraw from a unit or discontinue your course, you need to be aware of the the refund dates, percentages and academic outcomes applicable to your enrolment detailed below.
Refunds and withdrawal dates for continuing students
If you are a continuing international student (not in your first study period) and have withdrawn, your refund will be determined by the amount you paid and the total of your assessed fees for the applicable period. If you have paid 100% of your total assessed tuition fees you will be eligible for a:
- 100% refund of any amount paid towards your study period tuition fees if you withdraw prior to the start of the third week of the study period;
- 50% refund, if you withdraw between the start of the third week and the census date. If you have paid less than 100% of your total assessed tuition fees, 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.
If you withdraw from a unit prior to census date and remain enrolled in a full time study load, no penalty will apply.
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.
Before withdrawing from a unit seek advice
If you withdraw from a unit or discontinue 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.
