Census Dates Overview

Census is on 31 March 2020 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. 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.

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). If these steps are not done you will be discontinued after census and if you wish to continue studying, you will have to complete a miscellaneous enrolment and pay upfront tuition fees.

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

Need an Extension on a 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.
