Fees and loans
If you don’t officially cancel your program enrolment by the relevant census date you’ll remain liable for all fees, even if you’re no longer attending classes. This includes tuition fees, the Student Services and Amenities Fee and administrative fees.
If you have a HELP loan or VET Student Loan, you’ll still have to pay your fees if you cancel your program after the relevant census date.
Academic penalty (higher education only)
If you’re in a higher education program, you must cancel your program before the last day to withdraw without academic penalty. You’ll find this listed in your important dates. If you don’t, you may be subject to academic penalties; for example, fail grades.
Access to RMIT systems
You’ll lose access to all RMIT systems immediately after you cancel your program, unless you're enrolled in another program. Take the time to save or print any important documents in Enrolment Online such as invoices, Statements of Enrolment and Commonwealth Assistance Notices.
Cancelling your program will affect your student visa. You must contact the Department of Home Affairs for information before you cancel your program.
If you want to change to another program, don't cancel your program enrolment. Instead, apply online to change your program.
