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.
If you withdraw prior to census date, 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 90%* refund, if you withdraw 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 have paid less than 100% of your total assessed tuition fees, Deakin will retain 10% of your total assessed tuition fees and you will be eligible for a refund of any remaining credit balance.
- a 50%* refund, if you withdraw between 4 weeks prior to the start of the teaching period 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 payable if you withdraw after census date
