Re-admission after Academic Exclusion
IMPORTANT INFORMATION (please read before completing your application):
The below application is to be used to apply for course re-admission following academic exclusion. The minimum period of exclusion from a course is one academic year, pursuant to section 8.2 of Regulation 05.03 (1) - Assessment and Academic Progress in Higher Education Award Courses.
Any pending matters with the University Appeals Committee (UAC) or any external bodies (eg. Ombudsman) must be resolved before your re-admission application can be processed.
Please note: If you wish to apply for re-admission after discontinuation for reasons other than exclusion (e.g. non-payment of fees, voluntary withdrawal from studies or allowing enrolment to lapse) please visit the Apply for Re-admission web page.
Re-admission to Initial Teacher Education courses (NEW)
Students applying to readmit to initial teacher education courses will need to successfully complete the CASPer (non-academic) test which is a new Government requirement.
If you are unsure, please contact your campus FAPIC Secretary to confirm whether you would be required to complete the CASPer test.
Currently the CASPer test is available during September to January on specific dates. The next testing schedule should be available during August. Registration and payment of a fee to CASPer is required.
We recommend that if students intend to apply to readmit for Trimester 2 or Trimester 3 that they complete the CASPer at the end of the previous year due to this requirement.
For more information about CASPer please click here.
To re-commence study in Trimester 1: must apply before August 30 (of the previous year)
To re-commence study in Trimester 2: must apply before April 30
To re-commence study in Trimester 3: must apply before August 30
What to include: Your application for re-admission should outline any work, study and other actions undertaken whilst excluded, and should demonstrate why you will be more successful in your studies if re-admitted back into your course. Please explain how you have and/or plan to manage any previous issues which may have contributed to your exclusion.
Please ensure you attach copies of relevant supporting documentation to this form (eg. Resume, references, transcripts etc).
Applying for Extended Intermission
Students wishing to apply for any further period of intermission (beyond one Academic Year) must apply to the Faculty Academic Progress and Integrity Committee (FAPIC) by completing an online application form. On this form you must provide detailed reasons why you are unable to undertake your studies in the trimester/s you wish to intermit.
You must provide appropriate documentation to support your request.
Please note: An application for extended intermission should be made at least one week before the Census date
Final Unit to Complete (FUTC)
This application is for students enrolled in Faculty of Arts and Education courses only.
You must apply to the faculty in which your course is owned:
The 'Final Unit to Complete' (FUTC) provision is outlined in clauses 46-51 of the Assessment (Higher Education Courses) Procedure and offers students who are one credit point short of completing their degree to apply for either a Pass Conceded or Supplementary Assessment. If you are more than one credit point short of completing your degree, you are not eligible to apply.
Applications for either a Pass Conceded or Supplementary Assessment are considered by the Faculty Academic Progress and Integrity Committee (FAPIC) of the Faculty you are enrolled in, not the Faculty that taught the particular unit.
Applications must be made within 5 working days of Result Release / finalisation of your result for your next-to-final credit point required for completion of your course.
Please note the following rules:
- The Faculty Academic Progress and Integrity Committee will award a PC grade over Supplementary Assessment if the student is eligible for both.
- Neither PC grades nor Supplementary Assessment will be awarded for practicum or work placement fails or units worth 2 credit points.
- In relation to combined degree programs (e.g. Bachelor of Arts / Bachelor of Commerce), a student is eligible to be considered for a Pass Conceded grade in each of the component degrees.
- In some courses, a PC grade cannot be awarded for core units in courses requiring professional registration. These include but are not limited to the following courses:
- Bachelor of Arts (Psychology)
- Students enrolled in the Bachelor of Early Childhood course (E420) may only apply for a Conceded Pass on a level 4 unit.
If you have not met all the requirements, your application will be rejected.
