Census Dates

AFTRS is required by the Commonwealth Government to set a Census Date for each unit of study it offers.


What is a Census Date?

  • The dates you become financially liable for any unit of study in which you are enrolled.
  • The final day you can withdraw from a unit of study without financial liability.
  • The date when you incur a FEE-HELP debt for any units for which you have taken out a FEE-HELP loan.

Census dates are the final  day when all your enrolment requirements must be finalised.

Upcoming Census Dates:

Please refer to the Schedule of Tuition Fees document located in the relevant Course Fees tab on the left to find out which census dates apply to the units of study in your course.

NOTE: Deadlines for payment of fees are before the Census dates.
