(This message has been approved by the Academic Registrar for transmission to all AssocDBus students enrolled in courses delivered in Trimester 1 2014.)
 
Dear Student,
 
Failure to understand census date arrangements can be expensive. Some students enrol in more courses than they intend to take. They do not withdraw from their excess courses by the census date, by which time it is too late and they have larger than expected financial liability for the trimester.
 
  • The final date to add or change your enrolment is 7 February 2014
  • Please note the Trimester 1 2014 Census Date: Friday 21 February, 2014
  • Census date is the last date to cancel courses without incurring HECS-HELP or FEE-HELP or tuition fee liability.
  • If you are enrolled in a course at midnight on the census date you will incur financial liability for the course.
  •  If you withdraw from a course after census date and up until 21 March 2014 you will not incur academic penalty, but you will retain financially liability for the course.
  • If you withdraw from a course after 21 March 2014 you will incur both academic penalty and financial liability. You may make an application to withdraw without academic penalty in exceptional circumstances.
  • The University does not normally allow students to enrol or add courses after the census date. You should be aware that the University must charge full tuition fees to Commonwealth supported students who add courses after the census date. The University has no discretion to allow courses to be added on a Commonwealth supported basis after the census date.
 
Please ensure your enrolment details are correct by census date by checking your program and courses through mySI-net (http://www.my.uq.edu.au) and following these few simple steps.
 
1.    Drop all courses you do not wish to study in Trimester 1, 2014.
2.    Complete all your outstanding tasks on mySI-net by checking the boxes on the right-hand side of your mySI-net home page. Failure to add required information can prevent finalisation of your enrolment.
3.    Ensure that your mailing address, permanent home address and contact telephone number are correctly recorded on your mySI-net ‘Personal’ tab:
  • Australian mobile numbers are preferred and should be recorded as 10 digits without gaps (eg 0412345678 not 0412 345 678 or 0412-345-678).
  • Permanent Home Address must be your actual address.  Post Office boxes, places of employment or University addresses are not acceptable.
  • International students on a student visa must record their permanent home address as being in their home country and are required to record an Australian semester residential address and local mailing address in mySI-net.
