Refund Information

If you withdraw from units you have attended, you will not be refunded the whole amount, except where the need for a refund is caused by an action of the University.  If you consider you have a case for the whole refund you should contact your course delivery team to discuss this matter.

For further information visit: Student Refund Policy or  VET Domestic Students - Refund of Fees Procedures

Refunds of amounts that total less than $30 will be paid in cash if no further study is being undertaken.  If further study is being undertaken, no payment shall be made but a credit will be carried forward.

Refunds are not automatic. All students must apply for a refund. An application for a refund can be made by completing a Student Refund eForm or in writing, and must be submitted to the Cashier.

Your application will be considered and, subject to approval, Cashiers in the Office of Student Administration and Equity Services will process the refund to you or a third party who has paid your fees. It is essential that you advise the university of your current postal address.

The refund will be processed within 30 days of the submitted refund form.

Refunds can be processed directly into your nominated bank account through Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT).  Once the University has processed the refund, you should have access to these funds within two (2) days. 

Under banking regulations, if a student has made a payment with a credit card any refund must be credited to the original card.  Charles Darwin University will refund to the original credit card if the initial payment was via that credit card within the previous 12 months, otherwise the refund will be processed by Bank Transfer. 

It may take up to seven (7) working days before the credit appears on your account due to bank processing practices.
