How do I submit an appeal?

If your appeal relates to the following RMIT decisions, use the International Student Appeal Form:

  • Leave of absence outcome​
  • Requests for release (to transfer education provider) if you meet the eligibility criteria requirements
  • Attendance requirements (for VCE & Foundation Studies students only)
  • Amending study duration (eCoE request)

You must remain enrolled and attend all classes as normal until the appeal outcome is known.​

Commencing student refunds

If you have not yet started studying at RMIT and would like to appeal a refund outcome, use the Commencing International Student Refund Form.

Other appeals

For all other appeals, go to the appeals page. for information. 

Submission deadline

Strict timelines apply for appeals. ​You must complete the form within 20 working days from when you received notification of RMIT’s decision.


RMIT will notify you of the appeal outcome via your student email​ account.
