Course status

The University Rules: Admission, Enrolment and Academic Progress Rules provides details of course status rules.

A student’s course status is determined periodically by the Board of Examiners, based on the student’s performance in the most recent examination period.

Students are required to maintain a course status of 'Good Standing'. If a student is placed on “Probation” status, they must achieve the required grades during their next semester to return to Good Standing.

At the end of a teaching period, a student fails to attain at least 50 per cent of the credit points ascribed to the units in which the student was enrolled for that teaching period:

  • if the student has a current academic progression status of ‘good standing’, the student's academic progression status will be 'probation';
  • if the student has a current academic progression status of ‘probation’ the student’s academic progression status will be ‘at risk’; or
  • if the student has a current academic progression status of ‘at risk’, the student’s academic progression status will be ‘excluded’.
Students who fail a foundation or core unit three times shall not be permitted to continue the course. A student who fails a major unit three (3) times shall not be permitted to continue the major.
