What is a sanction?
A sanction is a notification applied to a student's record. Some sanctions may restrict access to resources, such as the ability to enrol, amend subjects, access results, or graduate.
If a sanction applies to you, an alert notification will appear on the homepage of my.unimelb. Debt or overdue fees sanction alerts will also appear on your Dashboard and in your Inbox in the LMS. To remove the sanction, follow the instructions in the alert message.
You did not re-enrol before the timely re-enrolment deadline and you are now liable for a late re-enrolment fee. If this late fee remains unpaid, overdue fee sanctions will apply (see Debt or overdue fees sanctions section below for more details).
If this applies to you, the sanction will appear on your account in January. Please refer to your Late Re-enrolment Fee notification for information.
