Summary of Changes from Previous Version

18/12/2023: The Student Support Policy was published to meet the 1 January 2024 date, which ensures RMIT complies with the Higher Education Support Amendment (Response to the Australian Universities Accord Interim Report) Bill 2023 passed by both houses of Parliament on 19 October 2023.

The Chair, Academic Board, has out-of-session approved the Support for Students Policy, under a delegation of authority provided by a Chancellor’s Determination on 15 December 2023.
