Exemptions/Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL)

To be eligible for credit Exemptions (Diploma level) or RPL (Foundation level), previous studies must have been completed within 10 years prior to the year of application.

Students may apply for credit where they have successfully completed units at a similar level and standard in previous studies. To be assessed for credit, students must provide the College with detailed unit outlines of all completed units in the previous qualification.

All applications must be submitted in the student’s first trimester of study by no later than the official trimester finish date using the Recognition of Prior Learning Application form [Foundation level studies] or the Exemption Application Form [Diploma level]. Applications will not be accepted thereafter. Applicants should not enrol in the units(s) for which exemptions are applied.


Students wishing to defer studies must notify the College in writing stating the reason for their request.  The College will re-assess the applicants eligibility for the next available study period and issue a Letter of Offer accordingly. Deakin College will retain all fees which will be used towards the following study period charges.  If a refund is requested rather than transferring the funds to the next study period or the student subsequently withdraws, the Refund Policy applies.
