Changing my enrolment

Open All | Close All

A change of enrolment can include one or more of the following actions:

  • add and/or substitute a unit
  • withdrawal from a unit
  • withdrawal from a course
  • change of course.

Make all changes to your enrolment in writing. The change should be submitted on a VET102 - Change of Enrolment/ Withdrawal from Course form available from Student Central, a CDU centre or your team.

If you are enrolled in a Diploma course, you can withdraw online through MyStudentInfo on or before the census date. Where it is not convenient to obtain the relevant form, you may submit your change in writing either by letter, fax or email to the relevant team. If you choose to write to the team, you need to provide at least three identifiers that show you as the person sending the written request. Identifiers could include: Student Number, date of birth and postal address. You should direct your written change to the relevant CDU centre or industry team.

To expedite the process, please state:

  • your Student Number
  • full name
  • course code and name, and
  • any other details about the change, such as unit code and unit name.

Ensure you provide your most current postal address, phone number and email address, so we can contact you if necessary. Also ensure that you date all correspondence and keep a copy for your own records. An Enrolment and Fees Advice – Invoice confirming your amended enrolment will be sent to you once a change to your enrolment has been processed.

To amend your enrolment by adding and/or withdrawing a unit, you need to complete VET102 - Change of Enrolment/ Withdrawal from Course form. Printed forms are available from Student Central. Have the form authorised by the relevant team leader or delegate and submit it to the relevant team immediately. Ensure you have ticked the box on your form to indicate that you are changing your enrolment.

You cannot withdraw from units once you have been assessed and found to be Competent or Not Competent in the unit. Students cannot add units to a completed award.

To avoid financial penalty, ensure that you submit your VET102 – Change of Enrolment/Withdrawal from Course Form within 14 days from the commencement date of the units you are withdrawing from or before the census date for the teaching period. Fees will apply if you choose to withdraw more than 14 days after the unit commencement date or after the census date.

If you want to withdraw from your course of study, you may benefit from discussing your situation with your team leader or delegate. Often an alternative solution other than withdrawal can be found.

International students on student visas must contact the Office of International Services, if they wish to withdraw from their course of study.

To withdraw from your course, complete the VET102 - Change of Enrolment/ Withdrawal from Course form and submit it to the relevant team before the final assessment. Ensure you have ticked the box on your form to indicate that you are withdrawing from your course. Printed forms are available from Student Central.

All changes to your enrolment are effective from the date your written notification is received by CDU. It is not sufficient just to tell your lecturer that you are withdrawing from a course.

NON-ATTENDANCE AT CLASSES DOES NOT AUTOMATICALLY CANCEL YOUR ENROLMENT, NOR DOES IT CANCEL YOUR STUDENT DEBT.

Note: to avoid financial penalty, you should submit your VET102 - Change of Enrolment/ Withdrawal from Course form (ensuring you have ticked the Withdrawal from Course box) within 14 days of the commencement date of the course. An updated Enrolment and Fee Advice–Invoice will be forwarded to notify you when your request has been processed (check your CDU email account if you have activated your CDU computer account).

If you wish to change to another course, you should contact the relevant team leader or delegate of the new course. You will be required to complete the following:

International students wishing to change to another course must submit an online application for the new course and upload a Statement of Purpose for Change of Course with the online application. For more information please contact the Office of International Services.

If you have completed any units that may be relevant to your new course, you may need to apply formally for credit for these units towards your new course by completing VET110 – Application for Credit Transfer form.
