Students who withdraw from a course before the census date, and have paid upfront fees for that course, may be eligible for a refund. The refund guidelines for RMIT University observe the principles outlined in the Code of Ethical Practice published by the Australian Vice Chancellors' Committee (AVCC) and the Education Services for Overseas Students (ESOS) Act 2000. These guidelines apply equally to all new and re-enrolling students unless otherwise stated. All refund requests are conditional on the following:
- The funds for the refund must be available (cheques cleared, telegraphic transfers received etc.); and
- Any debts to RMIT University must be paid in full or the outstanding amounts will be deducted from the refund.
Credit balances within a student's individual account will not be remitted automatically. Students seeking a refund of their credit must do so by lodging an Application for Refund of Fees form and any necessary supporting documentation at one of The Hub locations. This form can be obtained from one of the Hubs or from the student forms page.
If the refund is to be provided to a third party this must be specified in, or with, the refund application.
