You can request to withdraw from your course by contacting your teacher.
Please note: parent/guardian authorisation is required for students requesting to withdraw who are under the age of 18 years.
If you withdraw from a course or part of a course prior to the census date Bendigo TAFE will ensure that there are no financial, administrative, or other barriers to the withdrawal.
If you withdraw from course or part of a course and are seeking to enrol in another part of that course, we will work with you to ensure that you understand the impacts of your withdrawal on your enrolment in other parts of the course, including your eligibility and impacts on your study plan.
If you withdraw from a course or part of a course we will not, after the withdrawal, enrol you in a course or a part of a course without your written permission.
You will incur your VSL debt for each part of your course on the census date for that part of your course. If you do not wish to incur the VSL debt for that part of the course you must withdraw your enrolment in that part of the course, before the census date.
Having withdrawn from an approved course or part of an approved course, students with a VSL must sign a new Enrolment form before recommencing study in any approved course.
If you withdraw prior to the census date, you will not incur fees and you will not incur a debt. If you withdraw after the census date, you will be responsible for the fees and will incur the debt for that fee period.
What if I have special circumstances?
If you withdraw after the census day or are unable to successfully complete a unit, and believe this was due to special circumstances, you may apply to have your VSL balance re-credited for the unit of study.
To apply for a re-credit, you need to contact our VSL Team via firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you feel that Bendigo TAFE’s decision about your re-credit request is unfair, you also have a right to ask for an internal appeal of the decision. For more information on re-credits please see the Re-Crediting a Student Loan Procedure on our website.
Cancellations of Enrolment:
If Bendigo TAFE is cancelling your enrolment we will provide you with:
· 28 days to request an internal review of the decision before the cancellation takes final effect; and
· Ensure that the cancellation only takes effect only after any grievance procedures initiated by you have been completed.
