New admission to coursework programs policy and procedure

Published: Monday 7th March 2016

A new Admission to Coursework Programs Policy and Procedures has been developed and replaces the rescinded Admissions Policy and Admissions Rules. The policy and procedures has taken effect as of 1 March 2016.

The substantive changes to the principles and process incorporated in the new policy and procedures include the following:

  • The Admission Rules and Admissions Policy have been rescinded and recast as a policy and associated procedures in line with the Policy on Policy Development.
  • Transfer - students will be required to complete a minimum of two units in the course they were admitted to before they are eligible to apply to transfer.  For some courses, identified in Schedule 2 of the Procedures, students will be required to complete one full-time year lof study which is equivalent to 80 credit points in the course they were admitted to, before they are eligible to apply to transfer.
  • Deferment - the maximum period of deferment from mid-year 2016 will be 12 months which has been reduced from 2 years in the previous Admission Rules and Admission Policy.
  • Use of plain English to improve readability.

I would like to encourage all staff to familiarise themselves with the new Policy, and Procedures at: http://www.acu.edu.au/policies/student_policies/admission_to_coursework_programs_policy
