ACU Student Portal

The IRM team has now been given administration access to the Student Portal website. There are still some outstanding issues that we have identified with the portal and these have been raised with the appropriate people. In the meantime, if you find any issues, please advise IRM via the IRM Work Request Form and we will attempt to have them resolved as soon as possible.

Academic Board and Faculty Board

All November Academic Board approvals have now been actioned with the exception of new courses being introduced from 2018.

We are finalising amendments from the last of the Faculty Board meetings for 2016 and expect to have the tasks finalised next week.

Course Progression

Work on the training and for Phase 5 of Course Progression has slowed due to staffing resources and the availability of Course Coordinators for testing this time of year.

We continue to work through ad hoc Course Progression queries pertaining to general maintenance and checking. A reminder that any course or unit specific queries, for example, enrolment or grades, should be directed to relevant areas.

Please direct any queries to course.progression@acu.edu.au
