The Basics

Course Progression is a web-based planning tool that works with Banner to help students and Course Coordinators monitor student's progress toward degree completion. Course Progression automatically retrieves the students' academic data from Banner and organises it into a work plan on the web, easily identifying program requirements; which units have been completed; and which units the student still needs in order to complete their degree.

It provides a more accessible, convenient, and organised way for students to know where they are academically and how they can plan towards course completion.

Students may avoid wasting time and money as course requirements will be clearly laid out and they are less likely to enrol in unnecessary or incorrect Units.

Course Progression is not a substitution for consultation with Course Coordinators.

Course Progression is an advisory tool which will produce an easy to read and user-friendly degree worksheet. This will give students and advisors better information in selecting coursework and understanding degree requirements.

The software will allow a more precise snapshot of student progress in terms of completed and in-progress units. Faculty staff can advise quickly the units required to complete the degree.

Course Coordinators are able to enter notes into a students' Course Progression record, which will provide background information on interaction/advice/approvals processed in Course Progression.

Course Coordinators and Course Administrators should use the system as an advisory tool to better follow the students' progress and determine which requirements are still needed. The system can track historical notations on the students' record regarding advice given and substitutions applied.

Students will be able to use Course Progression to track their progress and check what requirements they still have to complete.

AskACU staff have access to view student records and assist with basic enquiries.

Enrolments, Fees and Scholarship (EF&S) staff have access to review any student enrolment enquiry including the processing of substitutions as requested by Course Coordinators (refer to Substitutions for further information).

Faculty Managers, administrative staff and other relevant University staff may use the software as an advisory tool.

The Course Progression Team (CP Team) within the Information Resource Management Section is responsible for entering all course rule data into Course Progression. The CP Team can also provide advice on relevant substitutions, if required, to the EF&S staff.

Students access Course Progression via Student Connect; separate login details not required.

All students are "active" for the particular Academic Year (e.g. 2014) from the date of acceptance, and remain "active" in Banner for 2 years regardless of whether they enrol in any units during that time.

If no enrolment occurs within the 2 year timeframe (e.g. 2014-2015), the student record will become "inactive" and will no longer display in Course Progression.
