After the deadline to drop a course without academic penalty and before the last day of the teaching period
If you drop a course within this period:
- You will be financially liable for this course.
- The course will appear on your academic transcript with a grade of AW (academic withdrawal).
- The course will not be included in the calculation of your WAM.
- The course will be included in the calculation of your academic standing and academic progression, as units of credit attempted but not passed.
You can drop courses via myUNSW.
Please be aware that UAC and tertiary institutions will count all units of credit with an AW grade as fails when determining your GPA
After the last day of the teaching period
You are not able to drop a course via myUNSW after the last day of the teaching period. You will be assigned the final mark and grade awarded to you by your Course Authority.
