You can view the status of your application, respond to your credit offer, cancel your request or view or attach additional supporting documents in Sydney Student (go to ‘My requests’).
If you can't see your request under 'My requests' you may not have submitted your application yet. Go back to your application to submit.
Your application may take up to four weeks to be assessed. Assessment time depends on the complexity of your application, the availability of academics and the volume of applications received. Please don’t resubmit or withdraw your application if the status doesn’t change during this time. If you’re unsure about your application, contact us.
During the assessment process, we may contact you regarding your application. Make sure you check your email account regularly and respond to any requests to avoid delays or your application being cancelled.
If you applied for credit as part of your course application, we will assess your credit after a decision is made on your course application. Applications for the upcoming semester will be prioritised. If you receive an offer of admission and want to accept this and enrol before your credit is assessed, submit an enquiry. We will issue you a credit offer for any units of study that we can grant at that point in time. You can then apply for credit as a current student for any additional units of study.
If you applied as a current student, make sure you've selected your units of study by the last day to add and are attending classes in case your application is not finalised in time. Credit is not guaranteed until you have received an offer from the University.
In most cases if you submitted your application by the application deadline, it will be processed in time for the start of the semester.
If your application is successful, you’ll be notified of a credit offer by email. You will need to accept or decline the credit offered through Sydney Student (go to ‘My requests'). Make sure there is a tick next to any unit of study you want to accept credit for.
You need to accept any offer of credit for it to contribute to your degree requirements and allow you to enrol in higher level units. Your offer of credit is made based on your current enrolment and major/minor/specialisation selections. If you do not accept your offer of credit and vary your enrolment, your credit offer may become invalid.
Credit/RVL will be declined if your application doesn’t meet policy or fit with the resolutions of your course. In this case we’ll email you with the details of why credit/RVL was declined.
Make sure you review the credit outcome sent to your University student email account before deciding whether to submit an appeal.
Submit an enquiry if you have any questions about your credit outcome.
If you disagree with the outcome of your application, you may be able to submit an appeal.
Once you have accepted an offer for credit, it can only be removed with academic approval. If you request that credit be removed and your request is approved, the credit will be removed from your record. You will not be eligible to have that credit granted again except with the permission of the Associate Dean.
To request removal of credit, complete the Credit rescission request. You will need to provide a reason for your request.
Once you have submitted the form, we will seek academic approval on your behalf and email you of the outcome.
