About the Staying on Track program
If you do not meet the academic progression requirements of your award course, you may be placed on the academic progression register. It is important to treat your academic progression seriously, as failure to meet your award course requirements could eventually lead to exclusion.
In order to meet the academic progression requirements of your award course, you are required to:
- achieve the minimum progression rate specified by the faculty;
- pass the number of units of study specified by the faculty as the minimum for a defined period;
- pass any compulsory or barrier unit(s) of study, field or clinical work, practicum or other professional experience.
The Coursework Policy 2014 section 75 lists the triggers that may be used to identify unsatisfactory academic progression.
If you are placed on the academic progression register, you will receive notification from your faculty. All correspondence and documents relating to your progression will be recorded on your progression profile.
If you believe you have been placed on the academic progression register in error, please contact your faculty’s student information office.
The Staying on Track program involves three stages, outlined on the following pages.
If you are enrolled in an award course of three years (or more), you will go through all three stages.
If you are enrolled in an award course of two years (or less), stage 2 will not apply. You will proceed from stage 1 directly to stage 3.
