Student application, admission and enrolment policy
You must pay your tuition fees, or submit the following prior to enrolment (at admission stage):
- A request for FEE-HELP assistance form, or
- A formal scholarship letter confirming the payment of fees issued by a Cultural Mission or relevant government body, or
- A financial guarantee confirming your scholarship, issued by a Cultural Mission or relevant government body.
Last day to enrol
You must enrol or re-enrol by the end of the first day of week one to avoid a late fee. International students who have not re-enrolled by Friday of week one will be reported to the DIBP for failure to re-enrol. Domestic students who fail to re-enrol by Friday of week one and who have not arranged with the Student Centre to defer their course, will be withdrawn from the course.
Last day to add a subject
The last day to add an additional subject to your study plan is Friday of week one. You may not enrol in more than the published stage load for your course, except in exceptional circumstances and with the approval of the Program Manager.
Last day to withdraw from a subject without academic penalty
You are permitted to drop a subject from your study plan up to and including the Census Date, which is Friday of week four of classes. However, if you are an international student, it is a condition of your student visa that you enrol and attend the published subjects for each stage of your course.
International students enrolled in diploma programs or UTS Foundation Studies are required by DIBP to undertake a full-time study load. Domestic students enrolled in diploma programs are permitted to take less than the standard published study load, but would normally be expected to take a minimum of two subjects per semester.
Pre-requisites and co-requisites
You cannot enrol in a subject, which has a pre-requisite, without first successfully completing the pre-requisite unless there are exceptional circumstances and you have the permission of the Program Manager.
Maximum number of subjects
You cannot normally enrol in more than the standard number of subjects for the stage of your course. You may only be allowed to enrol in more than the standard number of subjects for your course in exceptional circumstances, and with the approval of the Program Manager.
