What is the Academic Penalty date/Last date to withdraw from eStudent?

The academic penalty date, also referred to as the last date to withdraw from eStudent, is the last date you are able to withdraw from units within that study period. If you withdraw from a unit any time between the census date and the academic penalty date, you will be liable for the full tuition fees of the unit/s, however you will not be academically penalised. Once withdrawn, you will have a ‘WD’ for withdrawn against the unit.
If you experienced an adverse and unexpected event that has had a significant impact on your studies after the census date of the study period, you will need to lodge an application for a refund and remission of fees. If your application is successful, you will receive a ‘WD’ for withdrawn against your units and a refund or remission of your tuition fees.

Please check the Academic Calendar on our website for these dates.
