REFUNDS AND WITHDRAWALS
Withdrawal from a course occurs when a student’s circumstance is such that s/he cannot study and anticipates no change in the circumstance in the foreseeable future.
This provision allows the student to withdraw from the course and to re-enrol when circumstances are more favourable.
A student may withdraw without penalty from a course only if the notice of withdrawal is received by the Registrar of Good Shepherd College by 4.00pm on the last date of withdrawal without penalty as specified in the Academic Calendar 2020, or Key Dates.
After that date the normal outcome of a withdrawal is to receive a fail grade. Application can be made by the student to the Sydney College of Divinity if there are grounds for a compassionate acceptance of the withdrawal.
If the withdrawal occurs up to 4.00pm of the final date of withdrawal, the course unit fee will be refunded (less the enrolment deposit fee). Beyond this time the fees will not be refunded.
