Our closest match to your question:

Am I eligible for a course refund?

Generally, you will be eligible for a refund of tuition and the course administration and technology fee, minus a withdrawal processing fee and students union and alumni relations fee, if you withdraw within the first 30 days of the course. No tuition refunds are issued if you withdraw more than 30 days after your course start date.

You may also be eligible for a refund of the materials fee.

See university calendar for fee details.

In order to potentially be eligible for a refund, you must formally withdraw from the course. To do this, either log in to myAU and complete the withdrawal process for the course, or complete and send in a Course Withdrawal Request form.

More information on course withdrawals can be found in the Calendar and our Policy Manual.
