Today, Monday May 4th would have been the last day to withdraw without academic penalty for Trimester 1. In acknowledgment of the impact of COVID-19, we’ve moved the last day to withdraw without incurring any Academic Penalty to Friday May 29th. If you are are needing to withdraw from your unit, doing so before this date will mean that you will receive a ‘Withdrawn’ Grade. This grade does not impact your GPA. You will, however, still incur the cost of the unit. 

Thinking of withdrawing? Here are some things you might like to consider…

  • Do you have any catching up to do?
  • Realistically, do you have the time you need for your studies?
  • Is your schedule looking full for the next few weeks?

Tips for staying enrolled and getting back on track…

  • Make use of the amended assessment policies, which includes the opportunity to apply for an automatic 14 day extension, or further options (including amendments to required supporting documentation).
  • You might like to consider booking in for a Study Gym session with our Counselling Team.
  • Check out our Time Calculator Tool, where you can input the amount of hours you allocate to each aspect of your life, such as work, sleep, leisure and of course, study.
  • Go through out Academic Skills Office Time Management Page, to identify your time management strengths and weaknesses, download free planners and view example schedules.
  • We highly encourage keeping in touch with your Unit Coordinators for assistance, to engage in your Moodle forums and to use our Academic Skills Office when you feel like you are struggling with content.
