Nested Census dates

Coursework Students

The census date for a unit is the last date that you can withdraw from a unit without incurring a financial liability for that unit. You can view census dates of your enrolled units in eStudent. Go to My Enrolment tab then select the menu option 'Check Unit Enrolment & Print Timetable'.

If you are a Commonwealth supported student your student contribution charge and Student Learning Entitlement (SLE) are calculated as at the unit census date. If you are a fee-paying student your tuition fee is calculated as at the unit census date.

The unit census dates for the University study periods and locations are listed below.
