Statement of Student Responsibilities

At the time of enrolment, all RMIT students must agree to the Statement of Student Responsibilities.

All RMIT students must agree to the following statements, which together comprise the Statement of Student Responsibilities.


I understand that RMIT will engage with me:

  • via my RMIT student email account, or
  • by post to my current mailing address, or
  • by SMS, and
  • to my personal email account for all graduation information

I will regularly check and read all University messages, and will respond quickly where required. RMIT won’t vary a deadline because I didn’t receive or read information sent to me.

I will keep my personal information, such as contact details (including personal email, mobile phone number, emergency contact details and current mailing address), up-to-date during my enrolment and any approved leave.


The information I provided at enrolment is up to date and I will correct any errors made during the enrolment process.

I will follow the University regulations and policies, the published requirements of my program and any information given to me about my enrolment. I have read the Program guide and course guides for the program I am enrolling into.

I understand that I will require access to a computer and the internet to study.

I understand that RMIT can cancel or amend my enrolment if I don’t follow the guidelines in this statement.

Fees and payments

I understand that I need to:

  • know my current fees and their due dates by checking my online account and tax invoices in Enrolment Online
  • understand my options for paying my tuition fees, including the option to take out a HELP loan or VET Student Loan if I am eligible
  • pay my fees on time
  • be aware of the penalties that apply if I don’t pay on time including that:
    • I will be a debtor and I won’t be able to enrol, add classes, obtain a transcript of results or a Statement of Academic Completion, or receive an award (graduate) until the debt is paid in full
    • RMIT can cancel my enrolment due to non-payment

I understand that RMIT can provide my details to an external agent for debt collection.

I understand that before I accept Commonwealth assistance I must log in to the government portal to read the government booklet for my HELP loan or VET Student Loan and be aware of my obligations.

I consent to RMIT issuing my Commonwealth Assistance Notice, outlining Commonwealth assistance I receive, electronically via Enrolment Online

Student records

Where appropriate, I authorise RMIT University to:

  • obtain details of my past results from other educational institutions and professional bodies
  • release my trade enrolment academic and attendance records to the apprentice authorities and to my employer (if applicable)
  • reproduce, communicate, compare and archive my assessments to detect plagiarism


I will take personal responsibility for my behaviour and commit to the University’s core values outlined in the Student Charter to act fairly, honestly, courteously and with integrity as a member of the RMIT community.

I acknowledge and agree to the terms described in the RMIT Privacy Statement and this Statement of student responsibilities.
