unsatisfactory academic progress
Unsatisfactory Academic Progress

As a student, your primary responsibility is to progress through your studies to a satisfactory standard.

This does NOT mean that you have to pass every unit that you have enrolled in.

In the Faculty of Information Technology, your progress is deemed unsatisfactory if you have:

  • Passed less than 50% of enrolled credit points over the academic year; or
  • Failed the same compulsory unit twice; or
  • Failed to comply with any terms or conditions imposed by an Academic Progress Committee of the Faculty.

If you have not progressed to a satisfactory standard, then the Faculty MAY decide to exclude you.

However, exclusion is NOT automatic. In many cases students are given opportunities to continue their

studies and are provided with support.

It is highly recommended that students familiarise themselves with Unsatisfactory

Academic Progress and the Faculty's Early Warning strategies for identifying students at risk.
