Credit Assessment Sessions

What are these?

If you have completed previous study at post-secondary level (for example: diploma, advanced diploma, bachelor degrees etc) either in Australia or overseas, you may be eligible for credit for prior learning (CPL) into your course. Most courses allow for some elective units, so even if your previous study appears to be unrelated to your new course, you should still apply.

Credit for Prior Learning (CPL) Officers and Student Advisers can provide you with assistance and advice regarding credit entitlements, course planning and enrolment.

If you have applied for credit during the application process, you may have already been granted credit. Please check your details on StudentConnect.

When and where?

You may attend this session at any time during the hours specified.

Melbourne Burwood Campus:

  • Credit for prior learning sessions will be held late January 2016.

Geelong Waterfront Campus

  • Credit for prior learning sessions will be held late January 2016.

You can also meet with Student Advisers and Credit Officers by contacting your Faculty Student Centre at any campus.

You need to bring along:

  • An original or certified copy of an official transcript of your results from previous study.
  • If you are applying for credit for any business or law related units, you must provide information regarding the units you have studied (including a description of the unit, unit content, and assessment details).

What if I can't attend?

Please review the Business and Law Course Enrolment Information for your course below. If you wish to apply for Credit for Prior Learning (CPL), download your Application for Credit, and email this, and any relevant documentation to the Business and Law Assessment Services Team. Applications can also be posted or hand delivered to any campus . We will notify you by email once assessment is complete (or additional information is required), and provide you with some advice in respect to enrolment, and any adjustments that may be required.

Note: to accept your offer you need to enrol within 5 days of receipt of your offer regardless of whether your credit has been finalised by this time. Normally an assessment of your credit will take up to 10 working days, so the earlier you submit your application the better.
