Thank You

Admissions would like to thank the Student Centres for their professional support and assistance earlier this week when the offer email cron job fell over and they were inundated with enquiries.

Fees Applied

Late Offer Enrolment Link

  • Commencing Students



LAU Form

  • Continuing students, OR
  • Commencing students who received their offer earlier than 14 days prior to the close of enrolment via Student Connect




The hyperlink for Late Offer Enrolment is only available from Admissions, who email the link directly to newly commencing students who receive an offer close to, or after, online enrolment closes via Student Connect.

The LAU form is an Enrolment form for students to use when they want to enrol in a unit and it is past the date to do so online via Student Connect.


DEF Forms are due Monday 17 February when Orientation weeks starts.

Admissions are experiencing an extremely heavy workload at present especially with deferment requests. Before sending an email to Admissions requesting we check receipt of a DEF form, could Student Centre staff ask if the student received an acknowledgement email after submitting the online DEF form? If they did receive this email acknowledgement, then they can be assured Admissions received their form and it will be processed as quickly as possible.
