How much credit may be awarded for prior learning?

The learning outcomes in some Australian and overseas qualifications, occupations and units (subjects) have been evaluated to create credit precedents. If your prior learning is the same as a published precedent, it may help to determine the amount of credit to be awarded, when you become a Southern Cross University student.

The digital Credit Search and Calculator is currently unavailable due to system maintenance. In the meantime, to identify how much credit may be awarded into Southern Cross courses or units, download and search the precedents in either of these pdf's:

Click the relevant link to download. Open the document. Select 'Cmd+F' for Mac or 'Ctrl+F' for Windows to reveal the search window and enter the search criteria (course/occupation/unit name or code)

The pdf's are a guide of possible credit amounts that may be granted, so you can plan your studies to eliminate duplication of learning and reduce course length and study costs. The information is subject to change and does not guarantee entry (Admission) or credit for prior learning (Advanced Standing) into your chosen course.
