Transfer Guidelines: Deakin College to Deakin University

Students (Australian/Permanent Resident Students/Humanitarian Visa Holder/New Zealand Citizens) who successfully complete their Diploma course at Deakin College, that is, having completed and passed eight units, will be eligible to apply for a Commonwealth Supported Place (CSP) in second year of the relevant Deakin University undergraduate degree.

The following transfer criteria apply:

  • Completed and passed eight Deakin College Diploma units;
  • A Weighted Average Mark (WAM) in respect to the Diploma – taking into account all units attempted at Deakin College.

Transfer to some degrees requires specific Deakin College units to be completed in order to receive the appropriate credits.

Deakin College students who complete their Deakin College course within the normal timeframe for completion (based on full-time enrolment) are considered for entry to Deakin University courses on the basis of the conditions which applied at the time they commenced the Deakin College course.

Deakin College students who complete their Deakin College course in a timeframe beyond the normal completion period (based on full-time enrolment) are considered for entry to Deakin University courses on the basis of the conditions that are in place at the time they apply for entry to Deakin University.

Your Step-by Step guide for Transferring

Deakin College to Deakin University

Please see below your step-by-step guide for domestic students who are completing their Deakin College Diploma in February 2022 and transferring to Deakin University in March 2022.

The following transfer criteria apply:

  • Complete and pass eight Deakin College Diploma units
  • Achieve the Weighted Average Mark (WAM - this includes all units attempted at Deakin College including any failed units) required in respect to the Deakin College Diploma you are doing and as stated on the online Deakin University Application form for courses available in Trimester 1, 2022.

Step 1

Submit your application

Click on the Application Form below and ensure this form is submitted before 5pm, 15 February 2022.

The form is online and will take about 1 minute to complete. A chat box is also available at this site to assist you.

When completing the application:

  • Ensure all fields are completed including your email address. 
  • Click on the drop box to select your course/s. You will see all courses available.
  • The courses available and campuses on which they are offered vary each trimester. Please read the information provided carefully.

Please note: Immediately after submitting your application Deakin University will send you an email acknowledging receipt of your application after your submission. If you do not receive the email, please contact pathways@deakin.edu.au to confirm receipt of your application.

If you are not sure whether you have received a reply search your email for the words “conditional offer”.

What next?

Your results will be forwarded to Deakin University.

Deakin College will forward your results to Deakin University on the day they are released.

If you have sat for a deferred exam, your results will not be sent to Deakin University until the results are finalized. As a result, you may receive an email from the University advising that you have not been offered a place.

You should contact pathways@deakin.edu.au to inform them that your results have not been finalized due to having sat a deferred exam.

Step 2

Wait for your application outcome

By Tuesday, 1 March 2022, Deakin University will send you an email outlining your application outcome (for T1, 2022 intake) regardless of whether you were offered a place or not.

If you do not receive an email by the next day please send an email to: pathways@deakin.edu.au

If you don’t get a 50 WAM then you need academic counselling by Deakin College.  If you do not get the WAM for their desired course but get higher than 50 then you need to change your preference at www.deakin.edu.au/deakin-college-transfer to a course or campus that has a lower WAM.

Step 3

Enrol at Deakin University

Please read your offer carefully. You must comply with the instructions in your offer. If you encounter any issues, please contact your Faculty as soon as possible to discuss the problems.

You are required to enrol online as per the instructions in your offer email.

You will also need to timetable yourself after you enrol using STAR.

You can also now get a student ID card.

Step 4

Attend Orientation at Deakin University

Deakin University conducts an Orientation session specifically for graduating Deakin College students. This aims to address the differences in study styles and expectations between Deakin College and Deakin University, as well as assist Deakin College students to learn about Deakin Cloud and Deakin Sync so that they start their studies at the University fully prepared.

Please also attend your Faculty Orientation.
