Reflecting on the Committee's decision

After the Academic Progress Committee makes its decision, you might need to get some advice. You're welcome to talk to a:

Conditional enrolment

If you've been granted a conditional enrolment, it's really important that you meet these conditions. If you don't, you may end up being excluded.

Some faculties provide someone to support you during this time.


If you've been excluded, use the time to think about why you came to university and what you really want for your future.

You may want to consider:

  • whether this is the right course or university for you
  • part-time or off-campus study
  • work, instead of study
  • studying in a few years' time, rather than now
  • studying in another country if you're an international student.

If you want to return to study after an exclusion, you need to show that your situation has changed and your academic work has improved. You can do this by passing a unit with another institution and supplying supporting documents.

Appealing the decision

If you've been excluded, you can appeal only if:

  • you believe the proper process was not followed
  • you have new information that wasn't available at the time of the hearing.

You must send a Notice of Appeal and supporting documents within the required time frame. For more information, see exclusion appeals.

If you didn't respond to the Notice of Hearing and didn't attend the hearing, you'll need to apply to the faculty dean for reconsideration of your circumstances. You must do this within 20 working days from the delivery of your Notice of Decision. Only one application can be made and this decision is final.
