Your university fees can be confusing — but they don’t have to be. Find everything you need to know about your fees — whether they are tuition fees or other types of fees for both local students and international students.
The census date is the last date in each teaching period you can:
- withdraw from your course or individual units without financial liability
- complete and submit your 'Request for Commonwealth Support' (i.e. any HELP loan application) forms
- pay part or all of your student contribution or tuition fees upfront (if applicable)
- provide your Tax File Number (TFN).
Penalties apply for making changes to your enrolment, making payments and submitting documents after the relevant census date.
Check census dates
Higher education students are liable for fees after the census date, and will also incur an academic penalty (fail grade) after the academic penalty date.
To see your academic penalty dates, check the academic calendar.
