You can apply for credit after you've received an offer into a USC program. If you applied via QTAC, you need to submit your credit application to USC.
We can offer you general advice about applying, but we won’t be able to confirm whether you will receive credit until your application has been assessed.
We recommend you apply for credit as early as possible, and no later than the commencement of the relevant teaching period so you have plenty of time to finalise your enrolment.
NOTE: Please allow up to three weeks for your application to be assessed. This time frame may be extended during peak periods and for complex applications.
NOTE for international students
International students are required to advise USC International of their application for Credit Transfer in accordance with the above timing.
How to submit your application
Submit your application for credit via email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
- To avoid delays in processing your request, please ensure you have provided a completed ‘Application for credit’ form.
- Credit assessment for some programs require additional documentation:
