You can apply for credit for specific units within your course, or elective units if the course structure permits.

Apply for credit

Your application must be submitted by the Friday of the first week of the semester or study period.

If you transfer from one Curtin course to another Curtin course, any units you have already completed will be recorded on your study plan. You do not need to include these in your advanced standing application. If unit transfers do not appear on your study plan after you are notified of the advanced standing outcome, please submit an enquiry.
