Credit for previous studies

If you have completed previous tertiary studies, you may be able to apply for credit or advanced standing towards a course at ACU.

Please view ACU's guidelines about credit for previous study.

Credit transfer database

The credit transfer database lists the articulation agreements ACU has with other institutions.  Check to see if your previous studies are listed and find out how much credit you may be eligible for.

If your qualification is not listed in the credit transfer database, you will need to apply for an individual credit assessment.

Apply for a credit assessment

You can apply for a credit assessment at the same time that you apply for admission to ACU.

You must supply detailed information in English about your previous studies, including:

  • certified academic transcripts
  • official descriptions of every subject completed

Details of any credit transfer will be listed on your letter of offer.

Formal application for credit

During enrolment you will need to complete a formal application for credit to finalise any credit listed on your offer letter.
