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

MIDYEAR TRANSFER PROCESSING

Assessment of transfer requests for midyear is well underway.

Admissions aim to finalise these requests as soon as possible to meet our promoted deadline of completing all transfer requests within 2 weeks of results being released ie by 28 July 2016, prior to the commencement of Semester Two.

As transfer applications have closed in Student Connect, students should be advised to email admissions@acu.edu.au to cancel or amend their current transfer request asap.

Students wishing to submit a late transfer request should be advised that such requests need to be supported by the relevant Head of School. This support can be arranged through their Course Coordinator (email approval is fine) and forwarded to Admissions for consideration.

A reminder that students can only apply to transfer to a course that is on offer to new students in midyear.
