I am a new student in my first Semester of enrolment.
It is before the Census Date and I want to take leave. Is this possible?
A new undergraduate student in their first Semester of enrolment who
discontinues before the Census date, but wants to return in the following
year, doesn't get granted leave. You will need to apply through UAC
for the following year, but you will be guaranteed admission to the
same program the following year.
Once a student has completed at least one Semester of study, they can
apply for leave. Leave is granted for a period of up to one year ie
2 Semesters. Any request for further periods of leave are only approved
in exceptional circumstances.
Special consideration forms must be submitted within 3 days of the
date the assessment was due, or the exam held. In all cases you should
contact your lecturer to advise them you are seeking special consideration.
What will happen if I have to drop out of uni mid semester due to illness or misadventure?

or misadventure can apply to be discontinued without academic failure.
Such applications need to be submitted as soon as you stop attending
classes and must be accompanied by supporting medical or other relevant
When are the Census Dates and what do they mean?
The census dates are very important to remember because they are the
dates on which your tuition fees are calculated. This means that you
will be financially liable for all the courses you are enrolled in as
at these dates.
What is the deadline for discontinuing a course without incurring course failure?
The last date for students to withdraw without academic penalty is
the end of week eight of Semester. However students will still be financially
liable for all courses they are enrolled in as at the relevant census
dates. Remember the Census dates are: 31st March for Semester 1 &
31st August for Semester 2.
I am in one FBE program, but I really want to do another. What can I do?
There are no undergraduate internal transfers available. All local
students wishing to study a different program should apply through
UAC for the following year.
FBE has no mid-year intake in its undergraduate programs. Please consult
the UAC guide for application closing dates (the guide is available
from newsagents in late August/early September). You will need to complete
form B of the UAC guide. International students should complete the
International Student transfer form available from NewSouth Q.
