What is a Census date and when is it?


The census date is very important, as it is when the University finalises your enrolment. So, if you withdraw after census date you will get a WD (withdrew) grade and incur a HECS-HELP or tuition fee liability. 

It is also the last day to:

  • add units for that teaching period with lecturer approval (a late fee may apply)
  • submit a HECS-HELP form for that teaching period
  • submit a FEE-HELP assistance form for that teaching period
  • submit a SA-HELP form for that teaching period
  • pay your HECS-HELP/Tuition fees for that teaching period (a late fee may apply).

More information on Census dates is available on the Census Dates page.
