When to apply
So that you can enrol in the correct courses, you are required to submit this application form at least one week prior to the ﬁrst day of
semester. If your application is submitted late it may affect your enrolment and if it is submitted after the relevant census date, you will be
liable for the course fees and possible academic penalty.
You should enrol in course/s as per the program structure, which may include those for which you have applied for credit transfer. If your
application for credit transfer is successful, RMIT will remove the course/s for which you have received credit prior to the relevant census date.
Please be aware that you must have sufﬁcient enrolments to allow you to continue to access relevant student systems, such as canvas/
timetable etc., and to meet ESOS requirements if you are an international student studying on a student visa.
How to apply
Complete this application form and submit along with copies of ofﬁcial transcripts and relevant supporting documentation to RMIT Connect,
see rmit.edu.au/students/contact-and-help/connect. You do not need to provide a transcript for studies completed at RMIT.
Documentation must include copies of ofﬁcial transcript of results/vocational education Statement of Attainment/Certiﬁcate.
Please note: you may be asked to provide the syllabus and/or additional information.
For higher education RPL applications, please use this form, attach evidence of competency and use the Higher education application
for RPL assessment form. Address on the latter form how your learning and/or experience meets the learning outcomes for each of the
course/s for which you are seeking higher education RPL.
* The University reserves the right to request certiﬁed copies or original versions of documents.
There is no fee for higher education and vocational education credit transfer, and no fee for higher education RPL.
Normally you will be notiﬁed of the outcome in writing within ten working days of submitting your application, providing all the required
documents are included at time of submission.
Outcomes may take longer during peak periods.
Visa compliance for onshore international student visa holders
Onshore international student visa holders are required to complete their study within the expected program duration (Education Services
for Overseas Students (ESOS) Act 2000) and enrol in 100% load each semester (unless a reduced study load has been approved by your
school/college). If you are granted credit transfer for a number of courses it may change your expected program duration and you will need
to complete your program in the revised time frame. You need to check your enrolment once credit is granted and ensure your CoE is up to
date. Your CoE will be updated automatically by RMIT within 10 working days of credit being processed to your record, and the duration
change will be reported to the Commonwealth Government.
A reduction in course duration as a result of the granting of credit may have an effect on the length of your visa. Please contact the
Department of Home Affairs at homeaffairs.gov.au for more detail.
