Additional Academic Progress Requirements

All students are expected to make reasonable progress in their studies. Students may be required to meet specific enrolment and progress requirements if they are failing required units in their major(s) or are otherwise having difficulty with units. Where a student fails more than half of the required units attempted in the year or fails required units twice, they could be excluded from the course.
The progress of all students is checked at the end of each semester as follows:
* Those who fail 50 percent or more points of their enrolment load are recommended to reduce their load in their next semester of enrolment, if possible. In all such cases the student is required to complete successfully at least 50 percent of enrolled points in their next semester of study in order to maintain their place in the course (for example, will be placed on Performance Contract in their next semester of study).
* Those who subsequently fail to meet their performance contract will be excluded from the course for a period of two semesters, after which time they may apply for readmission to the course.
