Find more information about whether you are eligible for an undergraduate course transfer below.
To be eligible to Course Transfer, you must meet the conditions of both Step 1 and Step 2, listed below:
To be eligible to Course Transfer, you must meet all three parts (A-C) of the eligibility criteria:
To course transfer you must meet degree entry requirements as listed in the Course transfer requirements table. Not all transfers are automatic so check the table carefully for requirements. If you do not meet the requirements, consider applying for a different degree or applying through UAC.
The table below lists criteria for 2021 and can be used as a guide only. Criteria applicable to applications for 2022 will be updated later this year, please check back then to confirm the criteria for your preferred course.
When applying for a double degree you must meet the entry criteria for any component of the course you are not admitted to. Not all double degree combinations are permitted, the combination you choose will be assessed for eligibility after you submit your application.
If the course you wish to transfer to is not listed in the Course Transfer Requirement Table, you can apply through UAC.
If you are requesting to transfer into the newest curriculum for the same degree that you are currently studying this is considered an automatic transfer if the degree title is exactly the same, provided you meet eligibility criteria as listed above in Step 1.
If you plan to use specified credit (RPL) to meet the Course Transfer degree requirements, RPL must be granted and applied to your study plan before you apply for Course Transfer. If your RPL has not been granted and you do not meet the transfer criteria, your application will be cancelled.
Not all requirements allow for RPL to be used toward entry. Check the requirement table carefully and submit an AskMQ enquiry if you are unsure.
Some internal degree transfer requirements will require that you successfully complete a certain overall WAM before being able to transfer.
The WAM to meet transfer requirements is generated from Macquarie units undertaken as part of the currently admitted degree only (ie credit from any previous degrees is not considered in the calculation of overall WAM), each degree you study will have its own WAM.
If you are currently studying in the session prior to your transfer, your application will be put on hold until results from that session are released so that your updated WAM can be assessed.
If you have transferred degrees previously, we will only be taking into account the WAM for your most recent degree.
Some internal degree transfer requirements will require that you successfully complete a certain number of credit points before being able to transfer. Degrees which require a certain amount of credit points to be completed prior to transferring may not allow for unspecified credit or credit from external institutions to be counted towards this total. More information regarding this can be found under the Course Transfer Degree Requirements.
If you are currently studying in the session prior to your transfer, your application will be put on hold until results from that session are released so that your updated credit point total can be assessed.
From 2020, units will have a value of 10 credit points. Units completed prior to 2020 will also have the unit value changed from 3 credit points to 10.
Block Credit (2020 Credit on your transcript or BLKU2020 on your study plan) does not count towards the credit point requirements for an internal course transfer. You must meet the credit point requirement without this credit. For example, a student with 10 credit points of 2020 credit whose transcript lists 100 total credit points gained would only be considered to have obtained 90 credit points for the purpose of internal course transfer.
