Show Cause Resources

If your academic performance drops below our minimum standard, you may receive a Show Cause notice. If this happens, you’ll be required to explain to the university through a formal submission why you have had unsatisfactory progress and what you will do in the future to ensure you pass your units.

If you’re unable to satisfy the university with your submission, your enrolment may be cancelled. Swinburne advocacy officers can assist you with Show Cause submissions. We also offer the following tip sheets, guides and templates to help.

We can proofread your Show Cause submission and provide personalised feedback. Complete this online form and attach your draft of your show cause responses. We are fully aware of the urgent deadline for your submission; therefore, we try our best to prioritise and respond to you as soon as possible.
