Release and refund

What is a release application?

Standard 7 of the National Code restricts providers from enrolling students transferring from another institution prior to the student completing six months of his or her principal course of study, except in certain circumstances.

Deakin is not permitted to enrol a student who intends to transfer to Deakin and has not completed six months of their principal course at the institution from which they are transferring unless that institution has provided them with a release. A student is not required to get a release after completing six months of his or her principal course and can transfer freely.

Please refer to the release guidelines if you intend to apply for a release from Deakin.
