Going Dormant?

Please ensure that you have spoken to your course administrator about going dormant before submitting this form

Students who suspend their studies may still be liable for a percentage of their tuition fee. Your fee liability will be calculated from the date that the university receives your dormancy form.

If you are in receipt of maintenance support from the SLC then you may be required to pay some of this back immediately. The SLC will contact you if immediate payment is required.

Suspending your studies will affect your future funding entitlement with the SLC. Please contact to discuss further.
