Census Dates - 2013

A Census date is the date at which an enrolment is considered to be final.

If you are in a Commonwealth supported place by each Census date you must either pay your student contribution in full or have provided your tax file number to us.  If you fail to do these things, the University is obliged by law to cancel your enrolment.

If you are seeking Commonwealth assistance (i.e. HECS-HELP, FEE-HELP, SA-HELP or OS-HELP) you must submit an eCAF (electronic Commonwealth assistance form) with a valid tax file number by each relevant Census date. Only one form needs to be submitted for each course. For further information please see What is an eCAF? on the Fees Centre website.

If you are a student, regardless of whether you are Commonwealth supported or not, any withdrawal you make after the study period Census date will incur an academic penalty (for example, a fail grade) and a financial penalty (for example, no refund of your student contribution or tuition fees).

Census Dates for Research Students

Census dates for a student undertaking a Masters or Doctoral thesis are set by the following rules. For most students this means the Census dates for their thesis in 2013 will be 29 March for the first half-year and 30 August for the second half-year.

  1. The standard Census date for study in the half-year period that extends from 1 January to 30 June will be the standard Semester 1 Census date
  2. The standard Census date for study in the half-year period that extends from 1 July to 31 December will be the standard Semester 2 Census date
  3. In the student's first half year of study, the Census date will be the later of
    • the earliest date which is at least 20% of the time between the date the student commences study in the thesis and the end of the half-year period; and
    • the standard Census date for the half year period.
  4. For all other half-years of study, the student's Census date will be the standard Census date for study in that half-year period.
