How do I intermit?


You can apply to intermit your course through StudentConnect. Intermitting means taking a break from your studies while holding your place in your course.

You are allowed three active trimesters or two active semesters of intermission during your studies. By ‘active’ we mean a study period in which you are required to be enrolled as part of your course plan. If you need to intermit for a longer period, you will need to apply for an extended intermission.

Please note, in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, intermission taken during the 2020 and 2021 academic years does not count toward this allowance.

Check your study period dates through the Important dates webpage, as depending on when you intermit which may involve withdrawing from units, you may be liable for fees or incur an academic penalty.

If you’re thinking about intermitting, a Student Adviser can help you understand the rules and advise the best path for you.
