Fee Payment and Census Dates

Each teaching period has a Payment Due Date and a Census Date.

You can search for the payment due date below and you can also find the payment due date on your fee statement. Your fee statement is accessible via myUNSW.

The census date is the last day you can withdraw from a course without financial penalty. If you don't withdraw by the census date you are liable to pay the course fee.

What are T1, T2A, U1B, etc?
Some dates include abbreviations that refer to specific periods of teaching in each term/semester. Different key dates and deadlines apply to each Teaching Period. You can check the Teaching Period of your courses in your myUNSW Class Timetable or Enrolment Basket. For more information, see Teaching Periods.
