New Course Progression Policy

A new Course Progression Policy was approved by the Academic Board in Trimester 3, 2015. The new policy differs significantly from the previous policy because conditional enrolment (enrolment in one unit only) and suspension are no longer part of the intervention process. The new policy has three stages:

Stage 1

The new policy identifies students who are not doing well from their first trimester of study. These students are given an “academic caution” and are reminded of all the support services available for students, for example, learning support and counselling support.

Stage 2

If students continue to not do well, they are notified that they are “at risk” of making unsatisfactory course progression. Again, students are reminded of the support services available to them to help them to succeed and complete their studies.

Stage 3

The final stage identifies students who are making unsatisfactory course progression and their enrolment at the College is discontinued.

Throughout this process, enrolment is not restricted, although, some Schools may ask students to reduce their study load.
