How do I withdraw from a course?
You may withdraw from a course at any time up until the end date of the course. However, you may not withdraw from a course if you have completed the final exam.
You have two ways to withdraw from a course:
- Log in to myAU and complete the withdrawal process for the course, or
- Complete a Course Withdrawal Request form (included with your course materials) and send it to the Office of the Registrar.
The date of withdrawal will be the postmark on the request, or, if the notice is hand-delivered or faxed, the University date stamp, or the date of the online submission.
