If you apply for advanced standing for a unit you're enrolled in after the census date for that teaching period, you will be financially liable for this unit. When you submit an advanced standing application for this study, you will be liable for tuition fees for the unit you're enrolled in if this unit is granted as advanced standing. Until you know the outcome for your advanced standing application we recommend that you stay enrolled in the unit and continue your studies as normal.
If your prior studies are already included on the Advanced Standing Precedent List, we'll process your application within 10 working days. If your prior study isn't included on the Advanced Standing Precedent List, it can take up to 4 weeks to process your application if you've provided all the required documents. In some cases, your course coordinator may ask you to attend an interview or do some other form of assessment.
If your application is successful, the relevant units will be recorded on your academic transcript 'Granted Advanced Standing Unit'. These units don't contribute to your grade point average (GPA).
You can monitor the progess of your application in the HiQ site once you've enrolled as a student.
If you're unhappy with the outcome of your advanced standing application, you can request a review of the decision. Contact our advanced standing team for more information about the review process.
