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.
Every unit offered by Swinburne has a census date. It is important to be aware of your unit census date(s) and how they impact your enrolment, fees and academic record.
The census date for each unit 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).
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.
