A census date is the date at which an enrolment is considered to be final. Any withdrawal you make after the study period census date will incur an academic penalty (for example, a fail grade) and a financial penalty (for example, no refund of your student contribution or tuition fees).

If you are seeking Commonwealth assistance (i.e. FEE-HELP) you must submit an eCAF (electronic Commonwealth Assistance Form) with a valid tax file number by each relevant Census date. Only one form needs to be submitted for each course. For further information please contact our FEE-HELP officer at [email protected] or call 1300 138 522 (or +61893211702 from outside Australia).
