Withdrawing from a unit
The census date is the last day you can withdraw from a unit without being liable for all fees that relate to that unit.
If you’re a higher education student, you will also incur an academic penalty (fail grade) if you withdraw from a unit after the academic penalty date.
Note: You can’t withdraw from a unit after it’s finished.
Withdrawing from a unit without adding another unit may mean that you're studying less than a full-time study load (underloading). You may need to apply to underload on a semester-by-semester basis.
Most study visas require that international students study full-time.
You'll need to provide documents, such as a medical impact statement, to support your application.
