TAC OFFER ROUND UPDATE

CD FORMS – SEMESTER 2, 2016 – CLOSED!

Applications for Commencement of Studies Following Deferment (CD Forms) in Semester 2, 2016 closed 31 May.

Whilst the online form will remain open, any late requests to commence studies in Semester 2 will need to be given special consideration by Admissions as the preference will be for students to wait to commence in Semester 1, 2017 unless there are extenuating circumstances which will need to be supported by appropriate evidence.

READMISSION FORMS – SEMESTER 2, 2016 – CLOSED!

Applications for Readmission in Semester 2, 2016 closed 31 May.

Whilst the online form will remain open, students wishing to return to the University following a period of termination/exclusion/suspension should be encouraged to apply to return in Semester 1, 2017, unless there are extenuating circumstances which will need to be supported by appropriate evidence.

These applications need to be considered by Admissions and the relevant Head of School and as such require additional attention and time to process.

MIDYEAR TRANSFER PROCESSING – CLOSING 30 JUNE

Students requesting a transfer should be advised that their requests will be assessed and processed prior to the opening of Tutorial Direct for Semester 2.

Assessment of postgraduate transfer requests will commence next week as traditionally, many of these requests result in a new admission rather than a transfer.  Admissions aims to attend to these requests as soon as possible because there are a smaller number of them to manage.

Undergraduate students who have applied for transfer are in the process of being preassessed with regards to their eligibility to transfer.  These students will be contacted (emailed) by Admissions at the end of June to confirm that they still wish for the transfer to take place.

We expect to commence processing these undergraduate transfer requests:

  • early July for students who are eligible due to their previous entry rank/meeting prerequisites for their nominated course
  • mid July for students who need to wait for the release of Semester 1 results to determine whether they are eligible for transfer

COURSE OFFERINGS SEMESTER 1, 2017

The Coordinators (TAC – Daphnee, Direct – Kyra) are currently finalising the Course Offerings for Semester 1, 2017 with the Faculty Executive Officers.  It is expected that the final lists will be ready by 15 June.

MIDYEAR COURSE OFFERINGS 2016 – DIRECT APPLICATIONS OPEN!!!!!

Applications for direct admission to ACU for midyear opened on 11 April 2016 and are due to close 24 July.

Student Administration teams requiring details of course and campus availability should have been provided with the necessary SharePoint access.

Please advise Kyra Simondson, Coordinator Direct Admissions, if your access has not been granted.

ADMISSION TO COURSEWORK PROGRAMS POLICY

On 1 March 2016, the Admission to Coursework Programs Policy came into effect, replacing the Admissions Policy and Admission Rules, and will therefore apply to all mid-year admission actions including offers, deferments, transfers etc. Admissions are in the process of communicating the changes in this policy to Student Administration and the University.

REMINDER - RE: ADMISSIONS WEEKLY TEAM MEETINGS

Please note that Admissions will hold their next fortnightly team meeting from 10:30 to 11:00 am on Tuesday 15 June 2016. Anyone trying to contact us during this time will need to leave a message and we will reply as soon as possible.
