Census Dates


Census date

This is the last day for you to drop subjects and/or make changes to your enrolment. The census date is published on the UBSS website - see Trimester Dates.  

If international students withdraw from a subject they still must maintain the study load requirements for their course - 

  • International students must complete 8 units per academic year (3 units in Trimester 1 and 2 and two units in the Trimester 3) (8 units x 3 year course = 24 units) as a strategy to ensure you finish within your CoE period.

You must check on MyGCA that your enrolment details (subject selection) is accurate by the census date . You will not be allowed to attend any subject/s or undertake assessment items for any subject/s that you are not enrolled in after the census date. Your enrolment is your responsibility and you must address any issues with Student Services before the census date.

If you have not paid fees owing in full by the census date, your enrolment will be suspended, your MyGCA access closed and you may be reported to Department of Immigration and Border Protection (DIBP) for violation of your visa terms (which include remaining enrolled and financial). 

Access to Moodle

Students with unpaid fees will not be granted access Moodle.  Any outstanding fees must be paid by the census date.

We encourage students to pay their fees at the very beginning of the trimester thus allowing them immediate access to their online materials and important information specific to their course.You do not have access to MyGCA because you do not have financial statusYou did not enrol in the subject.
