Students have the opportunity to have their previous completed study recognised with ACOM. These studies must be comparable in content, outcomes and level of study to units within ACOM delivered awards, and successfully completed at other institutions. 

Before You Start

Before you start filling in the Credit Transfer Application, here are a few things you will need to know about the process.

Online Application

What You'll Need

  • Certified Transcripts

    Students will be required to submit a certified copy of the transcripts which contain the units that are being request for transferring credit. If your transcript is not certified your application will not be accepted. See above for certification requirements.

  • Current Resume

    Credit for previous study is normally limited to studies within the last 10 years. If you have submitted a transcript where the last unit studied was over 10 years ago please provide a current resume that shows you have kept the units current through professional development or experience. The 10 years is calculated from the start date of your first unit.
