Withdrawing from subjects (components)

A situation may arise where you wish to change the subjects you have already enrolled in. Withdrawing from subjects can generally be done in eStudent, however this process should be done carefully to ensure that the census date for that study period and subject has not passed. A small number of students will not be able to withdraw from subjects online.


To avoid a FINANCIAL penalty you must withdraw before the census date of the study period.

To avoid an ACADEMIC penalty you must withdraw from the subject before the last date for withdrawal without academic penalty for that study period.

Changes to enrolment may affect Centrelink Student Payments for Australian domestic students.

If you hold an International Student Visa, you must be enrolled full time.

To withdraw:

  • Select Subject Withdrawal from the side menu (under My Study Plans)
