Your faculty will review your academic performance if you:
- fail 50% or more units in a semester or trimester
- fail a compulsory course
After each semester, you will be advised if you're not making satisfactory academic progress in your degree, and will be given a few options to help improve your academic performance.
If you receive a review of progress notice you should contact your Program Officer to discuss your progression through your degree and to see how we can help you get back on track with your studies.
If after two consecutive terms, your academic performance is still unsatisfactory, you will need to provide your faculty with the reasons why you are having difficulties with your studies and why you want to continue with your degree by completing the show cause statement.
For more information about the Show Cause process and who you can contact for more information, please read the Show Cause Advice Sheet
To help keep you on track with your studies, seek help from our support services available for you:
- attend a study skills workshop
- attend a peer assisted study session (PASS)
- contact the Dean of Students for advice with academic matters
- see mySupport for advice
- speak to a counsellor
- keep your physical and mental health in check
- if you're not achieving the grades you would like, re-evaluate your study load. Remember 30 units is still considered full-time study.
For more details on academic progress, see the Program Management Procedure Manual - Coursework.
