(This message has been approved by the Academic Registrar for transmission to all students enrolled in courses delivered in Teaching Period 8.)


Dear Student,


The University’s enrolment records indicate that you are currently enrolled in a course that is delivered in intensive mode in Teaching Period 8.  The following information is intended to assist you to manage that enrolment.


Please note the Teaching Period 8 census date: Monday, 28 November 2016


  • Your enrolment must be finalised by Monday, 28 November 2016


  • Census date is the last date for cancellation of programs or 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 you will incur academic penalty unless you make an application and are approved to withdraw without academic penalty.


  • The University does not normally allow students to enrol in courses after the census date.  Where late enrolment in a course is approved after the census date, Commonwealth supported students are required to pay full tuition fees upfront and cannot access HECS-HELP or FEE_HELP for the course. 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 mySI-net (http://www.my.uq.edu.au) and following these simple steps:


 1.       Drop all the courses you do not wish to study in Teaching Period 8.


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 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.
