Withdrawing after Census

Up until Sunday 21 April you can still withdraw from units 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. If you do this this unit will not be used in the calculation of your GPA.

If you had to withdraw after the census date because of extenuating circumstances, you may be eligible to have your tuition fee for the unit/s refunded by completing a Withdrawal without academic penalty form.

Visit the Withdrawing without academic penalty web page for more information.

Upcoming Transition Sessions - Attention Final Term Students moving into 2nd Year of your Degree Spring 2019 (semester 2)

If you are a College student in your final term of a Diploma Course, and you are likely to move into second year at WSU in Spring 2019, you are invited to attend an important Transition Session presentation. 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.

Dates and times will be released soon, be sure to click back here soon!

For further information please contact Juliette via j.subramaniam@westernsydney.edu.au.

Course Progress

The 'Check My Course Progress' pages in MySR allow you to see what your course requirements are and track your progress towards finishing your course and if you're meeting the requirements needed to graduate. On these pages you can:

  • Add when you expect to complete your course
  • Check credit points are in your course and how many you've achieved
  • Amend or add specialisations
  • View  course completion rules

Need an Extension on an Hand-in Assignment?

It is expected that all students submit their assignments on time and manage the balance between your studies and other activities (such as employment, family life etc).  We know at times circumstances can prevent students from meeting the due date for an assignment such as:

- needing to work an unexpected shift

- a family member suddenly falling sick and needing care

- a last-minute equipment break down that prevented completion of the assignment

- a temporary illness, such as a migraine, making it difficult to focus on completing the assignment.

If circumstances prevent you from meeting the due date, you can apply for an extension for up to 48 hours (one extension per assignment) by completing the Extension Request Form. If you require further information please access and read the Extension Guidelines for Students or contact your class teacher.
