  1. Late unit enrolment is normally approved in exceptional circumstances on a case-by-case basis.
  2. Exceptional Circumstances are those circumstances that are beyond a student's control.  Some examples that are not considered exceptional include:
    1. Enrolling in a unit for the wrong session
    2. Late or overdue fee payments that prevented on-time enrolment

    Some examples which may be considered exceptional include:

    1. Administrative delay that prevented on-time enrolment
    2. Personal or family reasons
    3. Illness or misadventure
    4. Delay in enrolment due to the recent impact of the COVID-19 travel restrictions (the latest information regarding the University support strategies for impacted students can be found on our dedicated Coronavirus web page).
  3. Supporting documentation must be provided** with your application for late unit enrolment. Some examples of acceptable documentation include:
    1. Medical Certificates
    2. Statutory Declaration
    3. Official letter from relevant authority

    **  Students impacted by the COVID-19 travel restrictions have been identified and do not need to provide the above supporting documentation. This includes students who are impacted by the University's implemented travel ban.

  4. Please ensure the unit you are seeking Late Unit Enrolment for is ‘planned’ on your study plan (i.e. the unit/s fits within your current study plan). Your request will not be approved if the unit does not contribute to your current admitted degree.
  5. Please ensure that you meet all pre-requisites and/or co-requisites for the unit.
    Details of unit requirements are listed in the online Handbook
