We want to see you succeed ​we hope that prior to making this important decision to withdraw, you have explored all options available to support you in continuing your studies. 

Consider the following options:

  •     If the course is not what you expected, you might be able to transfer to another course during the first weeks of the semester (talk to a Prospective Student Advisor).
  •     If you are finding some academic components of the course challenging, consult with your portfolio about learning support classes.
  •     If you are finding it difficult to meet financial and study commitments at the same time, check if you are entitled to concession or enquire about scholarships at Student Services.
  •     You might be able to withdraw from some units if you are finding your timetable difficult to manage.
  •     If you are not coping with your studies contact Disability Support to discuss support options or for a referral to an external psychology service.
If you have definitely made the decision to withdraw, you will need to proceed to the Withdrawal Form (unless you are under 18, see below).  This is the only official way to withdraw from your studies.

You should also understand our refund policy so that you understand whether or not you will be eligible for a refund.
Advising lecturers and staff or just no longer attending classes does not mean you have withdrawn and will result in financial and academic penalties.
Upon withdrawal, you will still be responsible for the payment of any fees owing and only in some circumstances will a refund be applicable. Please refer to the back of the enrolment form for more detail on the refund policy. 

Information for students who are under 18

If you are under 18 the consent of your parent or guardian is required for the withdrawal.
