Are you a Transfer Student
You are considered a `transfer’ student if you are:
- currently studying college level classes but do not plan on completing your current qualification but instead you are intending to transfer to an Australian university to undertake undergraduate studies;
- you are currently at college but intend completing your qualification (example an Associate Degree from a community college) and then intending to transfer to an Australian university to undertake undergraduate studies.
- you are no longer studying but have completed some college credit and intend to transfer to Australia
There are some other instances which may make you a transfer student. If you don’t fall into the above categories but believe you are a transfer student, feel free to contact the AEC.
If you are a transfer student, the process you need to follow is exactly the same as that listed in the menu at left under `Bachelors, Masters and PhDs’, however, you will need to take some additional steps to ensure that you are treated as a transfer student. After you read the section on `Bachelors, Masters and PhDs’, you follow the application guidelines in that section and additionally include the following documents with your application to the AEC:
- a letter from you, providing details of your current university/school and the course you are (currently) undertaking. If the classes you are currently undertaking are not on your current transcript as `current’ or `presently enrolled in’ then you need to also provide a list of classes that you are currently undertaking so that your transcript and/or your list of classes you are currently undertaking provides the AEC and your overseas university with a complete picture of what classes you would have completed or plan to complete before going abroad.
- a letter (if possible) from a Guidance Counselor or Faculty stating what you have achieved to date in your program.
- a clear statement (which you could add in item #1 above) of your intention to request `credit for the subjects' you have already undertaken or currently undertaking.
Note that universities will determine how much credit you are entitled to only after you lodge an application and all supporting documentation.
Follow all other instructions listed in section marked `Bachelors, Masters and PhDs’
