Removal of financial liability in special circumstances

Students who are enrolled on and past the Census date are liable to pay for their enrolment. Students should check all important dates in the Key Dates Calendar each term.

The University understands that sometimes, for a variety of reasons, special circumstances occur that:

  • are beyond the student's control, and
  • do not make their full impact until on or after census date, and
  • make it impracticable for the student to complete their course requirements

In these cases, students should consult the relevant policy and submit an application and supporting documentation to Student Governance for consideration.
