The subject change facility via the Student Portal opens before the start of each semester for students who need to make changes to the subject selection made during the October/November re-enrolment period. Subject change dates are published in Concurrents, in your student diary and on the University website.
- In the first week of semester, changes to enrolment can be made without penalty.
- From the second week of semester until the census date, no additional subjects may be added to an enrolment unless special permission is granted. If you withdraw from a subject, a WD (withdrawn) will be recorded on your enrolment record. You will not be liable for tuition costs for this subject.
- After the census date, withdrawing from subjects will result in a WD being recorded, and you will also be liable for the tuition costs of the subject.
- The absolute deadline for withdrawing from a subject is by the end of week 9 of semester. After this time, if you withdraw from a subject, you will automatically obtain a fail grade for that subject and will be liable for the tuition costs of the subject.
If you wish to change subjects outside the online subject change period, you must complete and submit a change of subject form, which is available from the Front Office.
If you wish to add a subject, obtain written approval from the academic coordinator of the subject. Your application will be subject to both academic and administrative approval.
Adding & Deleting Subjects
Things to consider when ADDING a subject to your enrolment:
- Do I meet the prerequisites? It is your responsibility to make sure you have the appropriate prerequisites and/or co-requisites for any subjects you wish to add to your enrolment. Prerequisite and co-requisite requirements for each subject are stated in the University Handbook.
- Will this subject count towards the BMus component of my combined degree?
- Will this subject clash with any of my other subjects?
- Will I exceed my non-music points allowance? A maximum of 50 non-music points can be counted towards the BMus single degree.
- Will adding this subject result in an overload? Remember there are limits to the number of points you can undertake per semester.
- Have I read and fully understood the time commitment required to successfully undertake this subject?
Things to consider when DELETING a subject from your enrolment
- Is this subject a prerequisite or co-requisite for any of my other subjects? You should not be enrolled in any subject for which you have not satisfied the prerequisite or co-requisite requirements, unless you have a written waiver from the subject coordinator.
- Will deleting this subject alter my expected completion date? Many important administrative processes are conducted on the basis of your expected completion date. If your expected completion date is incorrect, you should advise the Faculty office.
- Will deleting this subject affect my status as a full-time student? A workload of at least 37.5 points per semester is considered to be a full-time enrolment. A part-time enrolment (less than 37.5 points per semester) is not acceptable if you are an international student, or are intending to receive Centrelink benefits.
