Student Assist

Student Assist is the support and advocacy service of the Curtin Student Guild. We’re available for all Curtin students with any personal, financial, or academic issues.
Our team of Student Assist officers can provide you with information or refer you to a wide variety of services. We are unbiased, confidential, and—most importantly—we are run by the Guild, therefore completely independent of the University.
We’re the best people to come to if you need to know about your rights and responsibilities in regards to University policy, and can help explain decisions made about your enrolment, academic progress, or assessments. We’ll also advise you as to how best to resolve academic issues.
Curtin Student Guild’s Student Assist offers confidential advice related to academic, financial and personal matters.
Academic matters

May include assessment appeals, assessment extensions, supplementary assessments, complaints, misconduct (including plagiarism), and questions regarding academic status (including Terminated status).
Financial matters

Include budgeting advice, help with your tax return, emergency relief, and our Bookshop Grant program.
Personal matters

Can include career and resume advice, referrals to legal services, or emergency laptop loans.
Browse the options available to you. If you're still not sure of what would work best for you or the information is not here, come and talk to us.
