Letter of Release Application Form
This form is for international student visa holders to apply for a release from their study at Charles Darwin University (CDU) to transfer to another CRICOS registered provider in Australia within the first 6 months of their principal program in accordance with the National Code of Practice 2017, Standard 7 and Charles Darwin University's International Students - Transfer Between registered Provider Procedures.

Release letters will only be granted on compassionate and compelling circumstances relating to the welfare of the student. This means there are family, medical or ‘well-being’ reasons for supporting a transfer (compassionate reasons). Or there are circumstances that are generally beyond the control of the student which affect their course progress or well-being (compelling reasons).
  • Do not include 's' before your Student ID number
  • PLEASE NOTE: Applications for transfer to another registered provider are only approved in certain exceptional circumstances.

    By ticking the check box below I am confirming that all of the above information is true and correct and I have read and understood the information on this form.
  • Once you click 'submit' your application will be forwarded to the International Compliance Officer. The outcome of your application is available within ten (10) working days from the date you submit your application.
