Online Rule Waiver

What is a Rule Waiver?

A Rule Waiver is a request to gain approval from your Director of Academic Program to enrol into a unit where you do not meet the unit rule/s.

When should I complete a Rule Waiver?

You should complete and submit a rule waiver request if you wish to:

  • Enrol in a unit that has requirements/rules you have not met.
  • Enrol in more than the maximum permitted credit points for a session
  • Enrol in a unit that is not at your home campus (not required for UWS Summer).
  • Enrol in a unit after the self-enrolment period of a session. 

For detailed information about course and unit rules and rule waiver requests, visit the course and unit rules webpage.

How to complete an online Rule Waiver

1. Log into MyUWS and click the 'eForms link' on the left menu.

2. You will then enter a system called the 'eForms Centre'. Click Find Forms. Choose the Rule Waiver Request form.

3. The form will open as an Adobe PDF. You will need Adobe Acrobat on your PC for this to happen. Adobe Acrobat is freeware, which can be downloaded from Adobe.

4. Complete and submit the form online before the census date. A copy of your request will be emailed to you for your records.

5. You will receive email notification advising you of the outcome of your request. Please allow seven working days for this to happen. Most requests will be completed much faster than this, but we need to allow time for your Director of Academic Program to assess your request. If your request is approved, you will automatically be enrolled in the unit. You do not have to go into MySR to add the unit.
