Southern Cross University has developed articulation pathways with many leading educational institutions across a range of our courses. Through an articulation pathway you may be eligible to apply for advanced standing (credit) towards a Southern Cross University degree that relates to your previous studies.
How much advanced standing (credit) will I receive?
To find out how much advanced standing (credit) may be awarded for completed studies associated with an existing, articulation arrangement please visit Southern Cross University's Advanced Standing Search.
If you have complete or partially complete studies not associated with an articulation arrangement, you should still apply for advanced standing (credit) as all advanced standing applications are assessed on a case-by-case basis. In certain circumstances you may also be eligible to apply for advanced standing for current and relevant professional experience, skills or expertise. For more information visit our Advanced Standing website.
