Enrolment for New Students

Once you receive your Letter of Offer, you will need to follow the instructions and proceed to accept, defer or decline your offer and enrol in a subject via Online Enrolment. In accepting the offer you are required to complete the Online Enrolment process before the offer lapse date stated on your offer letter, this includes satisfying any conditions attached to your offer.


To review the FEE HELP eligibility requirements or if you wish to apply for FEE HELP you need to apply while completing Online Enrolment before the Census Date. You can also apply via your Student Portal.

Withdraw from a Subject

You can withdraw from a subject via your Student Portal. Please note that withdrawal after the Census Date will attract the subject fee and will incur a WD or Fail grade. Contact Melbourne School of Professional and Continuing Education for more information about the Census Date.

Leave of Absence

If you need to take leave from your study due to a personal reason, illness or work commitment, you can apply for a Leave of Absence. Once your Leave of Absence is granted, you will be automatically withdrawn from any subjects enrolled within the period of your leave. Please note that Leave of Absence can only be granted when the period of leave is for the entire study period (including the intensive classes).

You can apply for a Leave of Absence via your Student Portal. Please note that Leave of Absence lodged after the Census Date will incur a full subject fee and will result in a WD or Fail grade.


After the Census Date, if you are facing with an unexpected difficult situation (personal reasons, illness or work-related) you can apply for Remission to withdraw from a subject with your tuition fee refunded (upfront payment as well as FEE HELP).

Exam and Assessment

The information about your exam and assessment will be given to you as a part of the study pack.

Special Consideration

If you cannot meet the assessment deadline or sit the exam due to personal reasons (such as financial difficulties, housing problems, family difficulties and relationship breakdowns), illness, or work-related problem, you can apply for Special Consideration. However, the disruption, problem or illness must have affected your studies substantially, and special consideration is only available for unexpected circumstances outside your control.

Once granted, you may be given an extension to your assessment, an alternative assessment, a deferred exam or an alternative exam. To apply for Special Consideration you can do so via the Student Portal with relevant supporting documents.
