Upcoming Transition Sessions - Attention Final Term Students moving into 1st or 2nd Year of your Degree Autumn 2019

If you are a College student in your final term of a Diploma or a Foundations Course, and you are likely to move into second year (or first year for Foundation students) at WSU in Autumn 2019, you are invited to attend an important Transition Session presentation in either week 6 or week 7. The Transition Sessions are an informative session where you will meet your Academic Course Advisor (ACA), find out the units to enrol into, the range of specialisations (major or sub-majors), career pathways the Bachelor course can take you and an opportunity to ask questions. These sessions are aimed at those students who are in their final term at The College and potentially eligible to move into second year, but also open to non-transitioning students.

If you are a Diploma student click here to find out when your Transition Session is scheduled for.

If you are a Foundations Nursing student click here to find out when your Transition Session is scheduled for.

Census Dates Overview

Census is on 30 November 2018 and once this date has passed you are committed to the units you're enrolled in. This means you will be charged tuition fees and receive a grade for all your enrolled units. If you drop any units after this date you will still need to pay tuition fees and will receive an absent fail grade.

The census date applies to students who are studying a course that is part of Academic Pathway Programs.

The census date is the official deadline for finalising your enrolment and fees for a term. This is your last opportunity to discontinue without penalty.

By the census date, you need to be sure you want to continue studying your enrolled units and, if you are considering withdrawing or taking leave of absence please contact Student Central for advice.

If you require assistance, please refer to Getting Ready for Census.

From 1st September 2018 students can withdraw from units after Census without academic penalty through My Student Records (MySR), in the same way as withdrawing from units before Census. There will be a pop-up screen that will remind you that you are withdrawing without academic but with financial penalty.

Students can still apply for a ‘W grade’ if they have experienced extenuating circumstances and not receive either a financial or academic penalty. For more information, visit: http://westernsydney.edu.au/wgrade.

For Term 3.2018 the last date to withdraw without academic penalty (but with financial penalty) is Friday 21 December.

You also need to have either provided your Tax File Number (TFN) by this date (if you are eligible to defer your tuition fees) or have paid your fees in full. Payments will not be accepted after this date.

It is also the date by which you must notify The College of any changes to your citizenship status and submit a new electronic Commonwealth Assistance Form (eCAF).

Results Release

Results for Term 3 will be available on student's records and will be emailed to students on Friday 15 February 2019.
