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 Officers and Student Advisers will be available at the following times to assess your credit and provide you with assistance and advice regarding credit entitlements, course planning and enrolment. Computer labs are also available on campus if you wish to complete the acceptance and enrolment process on this day.

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 by 3 February 2014. Applications can also be posted or hand delivered to your home 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 you need to enrol by the 3 February 2014 to accept 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.
