Student Advocacy and Support is here to help you if you have received a Notice of Hearing and Referral from your Faculty. 

You must submit your Student Response Form by its due date if you wish to continue your course.


Please read through the following information:

If you are an International Student you it is advised you consult Monash Connect to discuss your Student Visa. Contact:

You MUST be re-enrolled for semester 1, 2020. If you did not re-enrol by the deadline, the faculty may discontinue you from your course. Contact your Faculty immediately.

All information relating to this process will be sent to you via your STUDENT email. Check your Monash student email at LEAST every 48 hours. If you will be somewhere that you cannot access Gmail, make sure you forward your university email to another account IMMEDIATELY.

Check and update your postal address via the Web Enrolment System (WES) online, check your mail every day.

You must submit the Student Response Form (SRF). You may also write a letter to the Academic Progress Committee (APC) to submit with the SRF. In certain circumstances, the APC may allow you to stay in your course after considering the submission. However, most students are required to attend a Hearing in either January, February or March 2020. You can book in to see us for advice or to review your response draft.

Your SRF will indicate the due date for your submission and the time period in which the Hearing may be held. Do not submit late. If posting, send early.

Your letter should include:

Paragraph 1 is where you tell the committee what went wrong in 2019. It is usually best to be very honest. You need to provide details about what the problems were and how they were affecting your ability to study. Information you provide will be confidential.

Paragraph 2 is where you tell the committee what you will do to fix the problems, or as the case may be that the problems that existed in 2019 will no longer be a problem in 2020. You need to convince the committee that you have taken responsibility for what has happened and that you have thought through steps to change or alleviate the situation if it is in your control.

In order to solve a problem you may require assistance from the following services:

Paragraph 3 is where you say why you want to do with the degree.

When you have prepared your submission you may email the draft to us or come in to our office and a Student Advocacy and Support Advisor will read it and provide feedback.

The following is relevant to the Student Response Form

Make sure you tick the following box:


Hearing Time:

The Student Response Form indicates the proposed time period in which your Hearing could be held. Ensure you are available at this time. If you are still overseas or not in Melbourne, you will need to apply for a teleconference. A teleconference may be granted in exceptional circumstances, however many faculties are reluctant to allow them and it may be best to defer/restrict travel in order to attend your Hearing.

Student Advocacy and Support Assistance:

If you want a Student Advocacy and Support Advisor to have access to your faculty student file and/or assist at your Hearing (especially if you’re having a teleconference) you need to tick and sign this box:


Student Advocacy and Support is located on the First Floor of the Campus Centre, Clayton Campus.
