- About Deakin
The Credit for Prior Learning Database is a guide for students who have completed study at other tertiary institutions (credentialled learning) and wish to gain credit towards a Deakin course. Credit for Prior Learning into a Faculty of Business and Law course will only be granted when the appropriate paperwork has been completed. Final determination of Credit for Prior Learning will be carried out by the Faculty of Business and Law Assessment Services Team.
You should apply for Credit for Prior Learning /credit transfer when you apply for your course. Certified copies of all necessary supporting documents such as your original transcripts and certificates should be included. At enrolment you will then be advised of any eligible Credit for Prior Learning and enrolled accordingly. A formal assessment will be sent to you within 2 weeks. If your enrolment needs any adjustment at this time it is your responsibility to amend your enrolment online using StudentConnect.
If you think you may qualify for Credit for Prior Learning you need to apply when you send in your application for entry, making sure you include all the necessary supporting documents such as your original or certified transcripts and certificates. You will be advised of the success of your application when the University's offer of enrolment is sent to you. You cannot apply for Credit for Prior Learning for studies you have not yet completed. If you were still completing other study when you first made your application for entry, and you are subsequently successful with those studies, you can apply for additional credit. A formal assessment will be sent to you within 2 weeks. If your enrolment needs any adjustment at this time it is your responsibility to vary your enrolment online in accordance with the timelines set out in the handbook.
Credit for Prior Learning is not normally granted for studies completed elsewhere once you have started your Deakin course. If you do wish to apply for Credit for Prior Learning for any other studies you are doing concurrent with your Deakin studies, you must obtain Faculty approval beforehand from an enrolment officer.
