Section: Changes to Caboolture campus
The governing Councils of QUT and the University of the Sunshine Coast (USC) agreed to transfer QUT’s Caboolture campus to USC from 8 January 2018.
Both universities are committed to the future of higher education in the Caboolture region, and are resolved to act in the best interests of students, staff and the community.
Professor Hill said USC seeks to maintain and expand the impressive educational platform established by QUT at Caboolture.
Both universities have worked together to ensure a smooth transition for QUT and USC staff and students.
Forms you'll need:
Complete this USC online application form to enable you to transfer to USC. The step by step process for the USC form is:
This will involve completing your studies through undertaking USC units at Caboolture cross-institutionally from 2018. This means you will study approved USC units and QUT will then grant advanced standing (ie credit) for the units undertaken with USC towards your QUT degree.
If you are intending to remain at Caboolture Campus and complete a QUT degree by undertaking some or all USC subjects cross-institutionally from 2018, you will need to complete two (2) separate forms, one for QUT and one for USC.
Use the following instructions as a guide to study cross-institutionally.
QUT and USC will respond and confirm your submission of each form. QUT will provide USC with your academic record, units approved for cross-institutional study, citizenship and other details required by USC to finalise your cross institutional admission. You will receive an email from us when your information has been sent to USC. It is important that you check any emails sent to you by USC and QUT to ensure that you meet any requirements they may have or provide any additional information requested by the due date. It is also important that you also familiarise yourself with the USC academic calendar and key dates as they will differ to QUT.
Student who haven't advised us of their preference before December 2017 have had their home campus amended to Kelvin Grove or Gardens Point, and can enrol in 2018 units on those campuses.
If you want to change your preference to one of the two options, email email@example.com and follow the instructions as soon as possible.
If you are a current QUT student and have any general questions, phone 3138 2000 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org
For course progression queries and specific advice, contact your faculty.
Find out about your placements and course progression if you're studying an education course.

All Creative Industries students wishing to complete a QUT degree have been automatically transferred to the City campuses from Semester 1, 2018. If you have a preference to complete your studies at the Caboolture campus, you will have the opportunity to transfer to USC and graduate with a USC degree, which may involve some study at the Sippy Downs campus. Currently, USC are only offering the first year of the Bachelor of Creative Industries at Caboolture in 2018.
For further enquiries, contact 3138 8114 or email@example.com
QUT and USC use different terminology. A QUT unit is a USC course and a QUT course is a USC program. For consistency, the term ‘subject/s’ will be used to represent QUT units/USC courses. Similarly, the term ‘degree’ will be used to represent QUT courses/USC programs.
If you have any general questions please contact 3138 2000 or contact us via email at firstname.lastname@example.org
For information regarding USC, please visit USC's website or contact USC's Student Central via email at email@example.com.
For specific QUT degree related information, contact your faculty.

Phone: 3138 3947
Phone: 3138 3824
There will be no QUT course offerings at Caboolture campus in 2018 and beyond. USC will be offering courses at Caboolture from 2018.
The circumstances of admitted students who are not enrolled will be considered individually.
If you have successfully completed 96 credit points (8 standard subjects) of your degree at QUT then you are eligible to graduate with a QUT degree.
As long as you have completed at least 96 CP (8 standard subjects) of QUT studies, you will be able to graduate with a QUT degree under the transition arrangements, even if some of your ongoing studies are delivered by USC. Please contact your faculty for further advice.
Students on leave of absence should contact their faculty to discuss their options.
Students transferring to USC and wanting to apply for a leave of absence will need to transfer their enrolment and then apply for leave of absence (LOA) with USC.
Students wanting to complete their studies cross-institutionally who want to take a leave of absence should apply for cross-institutional study once they return from leave.
Yes. Details on the Orientation program for transferring and cross-institutional students will be provided once finalised.
USC will offer assistance to students. USC Student Central will be located at Caboolture campus in J Block, Level 1 from 8 January 2018.
USC have advised they hope this will not happen as there could potentially be new students on the campus as Sippy Downs students may elect to undertake subjects at Caboolture.
The timetables for QUT and USC have been finalised for 2018. Both timetables reflect a similar approach in teaching hours and delivery.
If remaining at the Caboolture campus, you will be given a USC log-in and you can access timetable information when available.
USC have advised that most subjects will have on-campus lectures. USC is focussed on class based, on-campus delivery of undergraduate programs.
Lecture recordings will be made available. In the first instance, students will access the Sippy Downs recording of equivalent lecture material.
USC have advised that they will be offering all years for programs offered at Caboolture from 2018, with the exception of Creative Industries, which is planned for a first year offering only in 2018.
Yes you can, but some subjects will only be offered in one semester, so your degree duration may be extended further. Please be aware that USC may have different processes and key dates to abide by.
If you transfer to USC, a checklist will be included with your offer for enrolment at USC which will require you to re-complete the forms to defer your debt. If you remain a QUT student and study cross-institutionally, QUT will confirm your financial status and USC will apply the same arrangement.
Studying cross-institutionally means if you are enrolled at a university you can study subjects at other universities to gain credit towards your degree. In the specific case of Caboolture, you can remain at the Caboolture campus as a QUT student, but can enrol into USC subjects to finish off your degree. This is designed for students who have completed 96 credit points with QUT. If this is your preferred option, you are encouraged to contact your faculty for a detailed study plan. For students with less than 96 credit points, contact your faculty for assistance.
If you choose to graduate with a QUT degree and study some of your subjects cross-institutionally with USC at the Caboolture campus, you are a QUT student.
Students who have completed 96 credit points will be able to graduate with a QUT degree and complete subjects cross-institutionally with USC at the Caboolture campus. USC will be offering programs in Accountancy, Business, Creative Industries, Education and Nursing from 2018 and have indicated their interested in expanding their program offerings at the Caboolture campus into the future.
Students who have completed 96 credit points will be able to graduate with a QUT degree and complete subjects cross-institutionally with USC at the Caboolture campus. Course progression maps have been provided for each program under the discipline tabs on the FAQ site. For further information, please contact your Faculty for a study plan that will detail the timeframes required to complete.
As a QUT student you will have access to QUT’s Equity Scholarship Scheme. Further information can be found on the QUT Student Equity Scholarships Scheme page.
You would access the Blackboard site for your QUT or USC subject. If you are studying USC subjects you would log into the USC Blackboard site. Similarly, if you are studying a QUT subject, you would log onto the QUT Blackboard site. Therefore, you will require separate log-ins for both institutions.
From 2018, facilities previously managed by QUT will be managed by USC. Therefore, access will be via a USC access system.
Yes, cross-institutional students can return to study subjects at QUT’s city campuses. Contact the relevant faculty for advice prior to changing.
This may be possible, however it is recommended that you seek advice from your faculty in regards to an appropriate study plan.
Once approval is given by your faculty to study cross-institutionally with USC, you will need to submit HELP forms to USC and complete the enrolment processes as prescribed by USC. Information on these processes will be provided to students before the end of semester 2.
It is understood there is no time limit for cross-institutional studies, however there may be different processes and dates to abide by. Contact your faculty if you require further information.
Cross-institutional subjects currently don’t count towards your final GPA as they are credit for subjects undertaken. You will receive an academic transcript from USC which will detail your academic performance in the cross-institutional subjects.
If you are applying for health positions include copies of both USC and QUT transcripts.
The grades you receive for units undertaken with QUT will appear on your QUT transcript. The grades you receive from units (USC refers to these as courses) undertaken at USC will appear on your USC transcript.
When you pass approved units (courses) at USC they will be recorded as advanced standing on your QUT transcript without a grade recorded and will not be included in your QUT Grade Point Average (GPA) calculation.
It is more common than you think for students to have more than one transcript to support completion of their degree. You should present all transcripts relevant to your degree when evidence of your studies is required.
Yes, as long as the 5 subjects you have left are offered by USC and in the semesters you require. Ensure you contact your Faculty to confirm which cross-institutional subjects you can undertake.
Yes, you may choose to do this. However, it is recommended that you contact your faculty to confirm which cross-institutional subjects you can undertake.
There may be student roles available. Further information will be made available once known.
Unfortunately, the transfer to USC meants that we will not have access to QUT systems. Contact HiQ on 1318 2000 or firstname.lastname@example.org if you need assistance with these matters.
Yes. All Caboolture students will be able to transfer to their equivalent course at Kelvin Grove or Gardens Point.
Students need to take that into consideration when deciding whether to continue at Caboolture or transfer to Kelvin Grove or Gardens Point.
As a QUT student you will have access to QUT’s Equity Scholarship Scheme. Further information can be found on the QUT Student Equity Scholarships Scheme site.
Education students: The Faculty of Education will identify previous Caboolture students to ensure that they are given professional experience in the Caboolture area.
Nursing students: The InPlace computer program uses residential address postcodes to allocate students to clinical practice locations. If you live in the Caboolture area you will have access to placements in this area, however all placements may not be at Caboolture hospital.
The University of the Sunshine Coast opened in 1996, and was the first greenfield university to be established in Australia since 1975. The University serves the Queensland Coast from Hervey Bay to Moreton Bay, with campuses at Sippy Downs, Gympie, Southbank in Brisbane and study centres at Fraser Island, Noosa, Caboolture and North Lakes. It is renowned for its student support, work-integrated learning, and innovative study programs.
Approximately 30 minutes by car. USC already provides a subsidised shuttle bus service that travels from North Lakes via Caboolture to the Sippy Downs campus.
At this time, USC plans to offer at least the same (or equivalent) degrees as those that are currently available through QUT at Caboolture from Semester 1, 2018. USC will also investigate opportunities for additional degrees over the coming months, and will make this information available on its website as soon as decisions are finalised.
USC will continue to align its degree offering with the needs of local industries and the wider Caboolture community.
Students can submit a request for a credit assessment directly with USC. Email email@example.com for more information.
Transferring students will need at least 96 credit points or 8 standard subjects to graduate with a USC degree. For students with less than 8 standard subjects to complete, please contact your Faculty for advice.
USC and QUT have a direct admission process so that application through QTAC will not be required.
No, if you're studying cross-institutionally QUT will adjust the SSAF charges for QUT subjects to ensure SSAF payments are not overcharged to students.
Any legislation changes will affect ‘new’ students (and students that transfer will technically be considered as new USC students). If the legislation is passed, new students would need to pay international fees, so it may be wiser to stay at QUT in a Commonwealth Supported Place.
QUT and USC Bachelor of Education degrees are accredited with AITSL and ACECQA (for Early Childhood). They are both recognised in Queensland and interstate as meeting the requirements for teacher registration.
Both QUT and USC degrees are accredited by Australian Nursing and Midwifery Board for students who successfully complete to be eligible for registration as a nurse with AHPRA.
There are differences between QUT and USC’s 2018 Academic Calendars.
QUT Academic Calendar 2018
USC Academic Calendar (semester-based) 2018
