Credit Pathways and Advanced Standing

Your University Pathway

The course or series of courses you choose will be influenced by your current circumstances, personal and career goals and other factors such as your past academic performance SCU course entry requirements and any amount of credit for prior learning you might be entitled to receive.

These factors vary from person to person but, no matter what your circumstances, Southern Cross University (SCU) can help you to:

Guaranteed entry @ SCU

Credit for related prior learning @ SCU

To help you select the course or series of courses you might study, SCU has evaluated some tertiary qualifications/courses delivered by the SCU College and Schools, TAFE and other Australian and overseas educational institutes to identify how much credit you may receive for your prior learning.

If you can not identify your previous tertiary qualification/course or educational organisation and you believe you have completed prior learning that is similar to the learning outcomes of one or more units (subjects) within an SCU course, you should still apply to have your prior learning assessed via our Advanced Standing Process.
