When to enrol

Higher education must enrol in one or more units, or add more subjects to their study plan, by close of business no later than:

  • the Friday of the first week of the semester (e.g. Semester 1 and 2) and
  • the first day of teaching for term-length units (e.g. Summer Term, Winter Term).

Unfortunately, Swinburne can’t accept enrolment applications after this time.

The census date is the last date you can withdraw from a unit without facing a financial penalty.

For information about when you can set up your class timetable, check the Key timetable dates web page.
