VERY IMPORTANT ADMINISTRATIVE ESSENTIALS

NEW STUDENTS:

Induction and Orientation Essentials

Before starting your courses in your program, we strongly advise you to complete following induction modules:

· Academic Integrity Micro-credential (https://www.rmit.edu.au/study-with-us/levels-of-study/short-courses/academic-integrity-awareness)

· Unix Induction Module (accessible from Program Canvas Modules)

These skills are essential.

Credit Transfer and Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL)

At RMIT you can apply for credit so your previous learning or experience counts toward your RMIT program.

  • If you are eligible for credit transfer or advanced standing please based on previously completed formal training and/or qualifications submit the Credit transfer (higher education and vocational education) and RPL (higher education) application form.
  • If you are seeking to claim RPL based on skills and knowledge acquired through courses provided by professional bodies, work, and other forms of practical and life experience (as well as previous formal study that is more than 10 years old) then you are required to submit the Higher education application for RPL assessment form with the Credit transfer and higher education recognition of prior learning application form.

You can find all the relevant Credit Transfer/RPL forms on:

https://www.rmit.edu.au/students/student- essentials/enrolment/apply-for-credit

Lodge the relevant Credit Transfer/RPL form(s) on the RMIT Connect Student Portal as soon as possible along with all your supporting documents, e.g. transcript, resume, reference letters etc. to ensure you can enrol the correct courses for the semester. On the successful outcome of your application, a customised study plan will be issued to you which you must follow.

Note: Non-compliance to the Enrolment Program Structure (EPS) can result in delay of graduation and/or need to take additional courses.
