Changes to your study plans
If you are an international student on a visa subclass 500, RMIT needs to notify the Department of Home Affairs (DHA) of any changes to your study plans. Some changes may affect your visa.
If you no longer wish to study your program and want to give it up permanently, you can discontinue (or withdraw from) your program. If you discontinue your program after census date, you will not usually be refunded your fees. See more information on refunds.
If you want to stay in Australia, you will need a new offer to study and a new eCoE within 28 days of your old eCoE finishing. If you have no new eCoE, your student visa may be cancelled by the Department of Home Affairs.
If you wish to transfer from RMIT - a Simplified Student Visa Framework (SSVF) eligible provider - to a provider that is not eligible SSVF, you may no longer meet the criteria for which your visa was granted and your visa may be cancelled. For more information, visit the DHA website about changing courses.
- If you have completed six months or more of the program with the highest study level as described in your offer letter, complete the cancellation of program enrolment process.
- If you have not yet completed six months in your principal program, you must apply for a release before cancelling your program.
