Cancelled enrolment

If you are enrolled in a Commonwealth supported place, your enrolment will be cancelled or discontinued if you do not meet the Commonwealth support requirements by the census date for the teaching session you are enrolled in.

Why has my enrolment been cancelled or discontinued?


Your enrolment will be cancelled or discontinued after the census date if one or more of the following applies to you:

  1. No 'Request for Commonwealth Support / HECS-HELP' form was received
  2. Your 'Request for Commonwealth Support / HECS-HELP' form was incomplete
  3. Your tax file number was not lodged via a 'Request for Commonwealth Support / HECS-HELP' form and no upfront payment was received
  4. An invalid tax file number was lodged
  5. You were not enrolled in any units

What can I do if I've been discontinued?


Because you did not comply with the Commonwealth support requirements at the census date you cannot remain enrolled in your Commonwealth supported place for the remainder of the teaching session.

You can do one of the following:


1. Enrol as a miscellaneous student and continue studying

You will be required to pay fees in full for any units studied under miscellaneous enrolment and these are charged at 100% of the student contribution rate. An electronic Statement of Account will be sent to you for your miscellaneous unit/s and failure to pay in full by the due date will result in discontinuation from your miscellaneous enrolment.

All successfully completed units in your miscellaneous enrolment will be transferred to your award course after the session's results are released.

Further details on how to enrol as a miscellaneous student will be emailed to you with your notice of discontinuation.

2. Remain discontinued for this session and return next session

You will need to enrol online during the next session's enrolment period.

3. Remain discontinued from your course altogether

You will need to apply through UAC should you decide to return after this session.

Why can't I continue as a Commonwealth supported student?


As a Commonwealth supported student, all enrolment information and HECS-HELP requirements must be finalised by the census date. There is no flexibility for any University in relation to the published census date.
As you have not complied with the Government requirements, (even though it is usually unintentional) we cannot pass your information to DEEWR for funding purposes for the teaching session. This is why the only option for studying in the teaching session is to enrol in your units as a fee-paying student and pay direct to the University as a Non-Award miscellaneous student.

Information about Commonwealth support is available at http://studyassist.gov.au/ (opens in a new window) or in a booklet available at any Student Central.

What if I can't afford to pay upfront fees for miscellaneous units by the due date?


Unfortunately, if you cannot afford to pay your fees in full by the due date you will have to forego this session's study and wait for the next teaching session to continue your studies as a Commonwealth supported student.

Make sure you complete all necessary forms and lodge you tax file number (if you are eligible for HELP) by the due date.

If I study as a miscellaneous fee-paying student how will my work and grades count toward my degree?


You will have all successful grades from your miscellaneous (Non-Award) units moved across to your award course soon after results are published. You will not be disadvantaged in your progression by studying as a fee-paying student for a teaching session.
