Timing of your refund application and refund

Depending on your reason for applying for a refund, your refund amount may decrease the closer your application is made to the commencement of a program and after a program has commenced.

The table below outlines the automatic amount you will receive based on the timing of your application (the date you submit your application for refund).

You can find the census and commencement dates on the Important dates web page on our Student's web site.

Situations where you may be entitled to a full refund

You may be entitled to a full refund if you have compelling or compassionate circumstances that are outside of your control and you are able to prove these with adequate documentation. Some common reasons that students can receive a full refund include:

  • you may have been refused a student visa, or been unable to get a visa in time
  • you may be ill or have suffered a death in your family
  • RMIT may have been unable to provide your program
  • you may have been granted a scholarship, etc.

Please note that for all scenarios (except visa denials) you must submit your refund application within one year of the program commencement date as per your Offer Letter.

Refund applications submitted more than one year after the program commencement date will not be accepted.
