Credit for previous study

When to apply

Application deadlines

You need to submit your application by the deadlines for each semester. If you're a new student, you should make sure you submit your application before you enrol. 

Application deadlines:

  • Semester 1: apply by 3 February
  • Semester 2: apply by 22 July.

If you apply after the deadline, we can’t guarantee that your application will be processed in time for credit to be granted for that semester.

Be aware that:

  • if you don't provide the required documents, your application will be rejected
  • if you apply after the census date your credit application will not be considered for the current semester
  • we can't finalise credit applications where results have not been published. If you’re a current student applying for credit for a unit of study you’re currently enrolled in, you need to wait until you receive your results for the current semester before you apply.

UAC applicants

If you are a new student who has applied through UAC, you need to accept your offer before you can apply for credit. When you apply for credit you need to provide the required supporting documents and apply by the deadlines above.

Direct applicants

If you’re applying directly to the University (including internal course applications), you will apply for credit as part of applying for your course. If you receive an offer of admission with credit, you will then have the opportunity to accept or reject the credit.

Allowable course transfers

You do not need to submit a credit application if you’re transferring courses and it’s an allowable course transfer, for example changing streams or upgrading from a graduate certificate to a master’s. If your transfer application is approved, an application for credit will be generated automatically. Once you accept the offer of credit in Sydney Student, this will be applied to your new course.
