Things to consider before changing your enrolment

Your username is printed on your Canterbury Card.

If you have forgotten your password either go to to the myUC link and use the Forgot Password link to recover your password or visit the ICT Service Desk, L2, Central Library Building

You will be officially enrolled in an additional course once the change of enrolment has been submitted and approved. At this point you also become liable for the additional tuition fees.

  • You will be officially discontinued (withdrawn) from a course once your application has been submitted (which is why you must hit the submit button). 
  • Tuition fee refunds will be processed using the date that the online application is submitted. 
  • Discontinuations will not be accepted after the final withdrawal dates. See Key Course Dates for full list of refund/withdrawal dates.

You must check carefully when making a change of enrolment that you have the correct course details as UC does not operate a swap system.

If you are a final year student it is your responsibility to check that your course of study meets degree requirements. If in doubt, see your Academic Manager (within your College office)

  • Any fee changes will be on your Confirmation of Change of Enrolment, which will be emailed to your student email address
  • Changes to your programme of study may affect your fees. Once your courses are approved you immediately become liable for the tuition fees or any additional charges.

If you authorised your fee payment from your loan: 

  • refunds will automatically be credited to your student loan account. 
  • additional fees will automatically be deducted from your student loan account.

If you are a non-loan student, you will receive an email from Financial Services.

If by discontinuing your courses, you fail to maintain a full-time study load, you must report to the New Zealand Immigration Service because you are no longer entitled to a student permit.
