You might have heard the term Census date floating around once or twice before. It’s one of the most important, recurring key dates throughout your degree, so here’s what you need to know and do….
Census date is the date in each term when the University counts enrolments for reporting to the Australian Government. Census date happens every term throughout your degree, so it’s important to know when Census date is.
Our Key Dates will help you to find when Census date is. Make sure you track it down and mark it in your calendar today.
Census date is the:
- last day to withdraw from one or more units without academic or financial penalty
- due date to make upfront payment of your tuition fees
- due date for submitting Request for Commonwealth support and HECS-HELP and Request for FEE-HELP assistance forms to defer your tuition fees to a HELP loan
- due date for submitting a Request for SA-HELP assistance form, or to make upfront payment of the Student Services and Amenities Fee (SSAF)
Census date is also your last chance to:
- Apply for a leave of absence
- Change your citizenship status
- Provide your Tax File Number (TFN)
Submitting any of your HELP forms is super simple to do in MyCentre and we’ve created a bunch of different Instruction Sheets for you here.
It’s important to note that if you don’t pay or defer your fees on time, your Moodle access will be removed and will not be reinstated until your fees are either paid in full or deferred to a HELP loan.
One last thing, if you’re enrolled for the term and have any questions about Census date, make sure you submit an enquiry with our Student Fees team before Census date.
