Cross Institutional Enrolment
Students Currently Enrolled at the University of Newcastle Who Wish to Study at Another Institution
The University may allow students of good academic standing (not under exclusion, suspension, restricted enrolment, negative service indicators etc), under certain circumstances, to undertake an approved course or courses at another tertiary institution to count towards their University of Newcastle program. This is known as cross-institutional credit. There is a charge of $50.00 per course assessment.
It is your responsibility to ensure that the intended study is consistent with the rules for your program and that they satisfy any accreditation requirements for that program.
If you are seeking cross-institutional enrolment, you should provide an academic or other compelling reason for undertaking the courses at the intended institution. You must also ensure that the type of enrolment you seek is possible at the desired institution. Finally, you must receive written permission from the Faculty responsible for your program before you undertake the study.
To apply for Cross-Institutional study you must complete the Application for Cross-Institutional Credit and supply an official outline of each course you wish to be assessed for approval.
Please note there are restrictions on the amount of credit which can be obtained through cross institutional study. These restrictions can be viewed in Clause 6 of the Credit and Articulation Policy.
