If you need to withdraw from a subject after the census date but before grade release for the session, you can apply for Special Consideration if you have:
Depending on the timing through session and the work you’ve completed to-date, an approved withdrawal may not always be the best solution. You also have to the option to apply for an extension beyond the end of session, short-term extensions, or a deferred exam.
You should apply for Special Consideration as soon as possible after the circumstances have occurred.
See Time Limits for Special Consideration submission.
You should also see Principal Dates for when the Census Date occurs.
You must include the right documentary evidence to support your application.
If you're applying because of illness, your medical practitioner will need complete a Charles Sturt University Student Medical Certificate form [PDF] and you must submit this with your request.
If you want to apply for an AW after the final grade for that subject has been released, you must apply for a Review of Final Grade.
Submit a Request for Special Consideration form and select To withdraw from a subject after census date.
If you are granted an AW grade, you will not automatically be given a waiver of your HECS-Help liability (or a refund if you paid upfront) for the subject. You will need to apply separately for a refund and your reasons for withdrawing must meet the criteria.
