(This message has been approved by the Academic Registrar for transmission to all students enrolled in courses delivered in Summer Semester 2014/2015.)

Dear Student
 
The University’s enrolment records indicate you are currently enrolled in a course that is delivered in Summer Semester 2014/2015. The following information is intended to assist you to manage that enrolment.
                                    
We hope your studies this semester have been progressing well. University study can be challenging and personal circumstances can impact on your ability to study. If you are concerned about your academic performance and do not think you can successfully continue your enrolment in a course, you can withdraw without academic penalty from Summer Semester courses via mySI-net on or before 5 January 2015. For more information about withdrawing from a program or course, visit myAdvisor at http://www.uq.edu.au/myadvisor/index.html?page=2970.
 
If you decide to withdraw from a course, a grade of 'W' will be shown on your studies report, but not on your official academic transcript. A 'W' does not contribute to your grade point average. However, please be aware that you will retain financial liability for the courses you have dropped.
 
If you have special circumstances that might justify the removal of financial liability, you can apply for this separately http://www.uq.edu.au/myadvisor/removal-financial-liability
 
If your circumstances change after 5 January 2015 and you believe you have grounds to withdraw without academic penalty BEFORE your results are finalised for the semester (such as the onset of serious illness), you can apply in writing to your faculty, requesting withdrawal. You must apply as soon as possible and provide supporting documentation (such as a medical certificate) to support your application.
 
You should contact staff in your faculty, school or Student Services for advice prior to making any enrolment changes. Before you make a final decision, stop and consider the implications, particularly if you are an international student who has student visa obligations.
