Transfer to JCU

You can transfer to JCU in five simple steps, and complete your degree faster by using credit from your previous studies.

Find the course you are looking to transfer into. The course pages have further information on entry requirements to make sure you're eligible. Check the location (if applicable), and the commencing dates for the next available intake.

If you are currently studying, or have previously studied at another institution, contact them and ask that they supply a copy of your academic transcript.

You should also get a copy of the course/subject description including syllabus or Handbook outline. You will need these documents when applying for credit.

Apply for the course you want to transfer into. Click here for more information on how to apply.

Use the credit calculator to see what credit you might be able to transfer from your previous studies. If you can't find any credit listed in the calculator, still apply as we will assess your circumstances individually.

If transferring credit from another institution, you must supply:

  • A copy of academic transcript/academic record showing course/subjects completed, completion year and grades obtained, details of grading system used and weighting of the course/subject as portion of total program.
  • A copy of the course/subject description including syllabus or Handbook outline.

Complete the Application for Credit form and attach all of the relevant documentation.

We will email you with a credit outcome within 20 business days from the receipt of your application. If you are unsuccessful, you will receive an email informing you of your options.

We will process your application and make sure you meet all the entry requirements. Once you receive an offer, you must formally accept it via the JCU app.

If you are still enrolled in your old course, don't forget to withdraw from it, ideally before census date so you don't get charged for that study period.

Check the dates that enrolments open for your course. You will be provided with all the information on how to enrol with your offer.
