If you’re applying for a refund after the census date, this is called a Post-Census Remission of Debt (PCRD) application. In general, unit revisions are not available after the census date except under special circumstances.
Registered practitioner statements are not accepted
We do not accept registered practitioner statements or the OUA Special Circumstances professional authority form.
You must apply:
- within 12 months of your withdrawal date from the unit(s). Swinburne may extend the deadline if the circumstances prevented you from applying for the remission of debt within that timeframe.
- if you failed but did not formally withdraw, you must apply within 12 months of the last teaching day of the unit(s)
It can take 21 working days for the university to assess a PCRD. There may be delays during peak times of the academic year. Incomplete applications will not be assessed and can delay the outcome to your application.
Review of decision
You will have a further 21 days to request a review of our decision whether or not to re-credit HELP balances. There is no charge for reconsideration or review of decisions, other than review by the Administrative Appeals Tribunal.
