Census dates and teaching periods 2019

The census date is:

  • when you become liable for fees for the units you're enrolled in
  • the last day you can discontinue without 'withdrawn' showing on your academic record (there are some exceptions)

If you discontinue a unit after certain dates, your academic record can show withdrawn or withdrawn fail. You should understand how discontinuation dates can affect your fees and academic record.
