Important changes to fees
For Commonwealth Supported students; changes to the student contribution bands in 2021 may impact the amount you will be charged for your courses. More information can be found here. For International students there may be a change to the tuition fee applicable to the new program or the new trimester of commencement. Visit Paying your fees.
You may only enrol in the program you've received an admission offer for. You will need to enrol in your new approved program and complete a new enrolment questionnaire.
For some programs you will be required to enrol within a specific timeframe. Please see Track your application – undergraduate for specific advice.
Unique Student Identifier
From 1 January 2021, all Griffith students will require a Unique Student Identifier in order to be eligible for a Commonwealth supported place and Commonwealth financial assistance (HECS-HELP, FEE-HELP or OS-HELP). If you're commencing a new program at Griffith, you will need to obtain a USI (or locate your existing USI) and provide it via the Pre-Enrolment Questionnaire before your first census date. For further information visit Unique Student Identifier.
Award of credit on transfer
You do not need to apply for credit when your transfer is approved. This will be done as part of the transfer process and you will be advised of the outcome. For further information on the credit process you can visit Credit transfer.
Unsuccessful outcome and options
If you are not successful in obtaining a place in the tertiary program that most interests you, there are a number of ways to increase your chances of gaining a place in the future.
This process is often called 'upgrading' or 'admission pathways'.
If you are a domestic student, you can visit admission pathways to Griffith or visit upgrading via university studies for information on options to increase your chances of gaining a place at Griffith.
