Adding and Deleting Courses

Students can add or delete semester-long courses without penalty, up until the end of the second week of each semester. Double-semester courses can be added or deleted without penalty, up until the end of the forth week of lectures in the first semester.

After these deadlines, subject to availability of places in a course, a late enrolment may be accepted upon payment of a late enrolment fee of $110.00 (incl. GST) per course. The form (AS-70) is available from the Law School Student Centre or on the ‘Forms for Students’ website. Once completed and payment made, the form should be returned to the Law School Student Centre.

After these deadlines, if you wish to cease attendance in a course, you may apply to withdraw from the course. Application must be made on the AS-70 form available as above. The last date you can withdraw from semester-long courses is three weeks before the end of the lectures; the last day you can withdraw from double-semester courses is three weeks before the end of lectures in the second semester; the last day you can withdraw from summer school courses is one week before the end of lectures. The course will remain on your academic record and show as a "withdrawal". Tuition fees are not refundable in the case of "withdrawals".
