Recognition of prior learning (credit transfer)

If you have already studied at university level or have significant relevant work experience, you can apply for credit towards your ACU course. Credited units replace units you would otherwise study, so you can finish your course earlier.

Applying for credit/recognition of prior learning

You can apply for recognition of prior learning to gain credit towards your ACU degree. However, you can only apply for credit once you have accepted and enroled in your ACU course.

Once you are an ACU student, you can apply for credit towards your ACU course by completing an Application for Credit / Recognition of Prior Learning form. The form should be submitted no later than the census date in the first semester of your enrolment in the course. The census date is the last day you can make changes to your student enrolment before you become committed to your fees.
