Varying Your Summer OR Winter Enrolment

Submitting a variation

Summer and Winter students can vary their enrolment online in Sydney Student. The last day to vary your enrolment without incurring financial penalty is the census date.

If your application for Summer/Winter School is pending and you want to vary your Summer or Winter School unit selection please send a request via email to the Summer School at

Please note: when you vary your Summer School enrolment it is your responsibility to ensure there is no timetable clash between the two summer units.
