Updating your details

It’s important to keep your personal details up-to-date so you don’t miss important information from the University. Out-of-date information may affect how we contact you in an emergency, as well as academic implications on your fees and academic transcript.

Here’s what you need to do if you need to change or update your details:

Changing your gender details

Curtin systems allow for identification as M (male), F (female), or X (indeterminate/unspecified/intersex). No supporting documentation is required.

For support and further information see the Gender Transition at Curtin guide or contact a Curtin Ally or the Student Wellbeing Advisory Service.

To change your gender details contact Curtin Connect.

Changing your details with the University will not automatically change your details with government agencies and could lead to delays in services with agencies whilst verifications take place.  For example, Centrelink student support payments may be interrupted if name and gender records do not match at both the University and Centrelink. Please carefully consider any potential consequences of not changing your personal details with all government agencies you deal with.

Changing your citizenship or visa status

To change your citizenship or visa status you will need to: 

It is important that your residency status is accurate as this affects your fee liability. Requests must be lodged before the census date to be effective for the study period.

If you are changing your residency status from international student to a domestic student you may need to complete an electronic Commonwealth Assistance form (eCAF).
