How to apply for credit

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.

The on-time due date for credit applications for Semester 1 2022 is Friday, 4 February 2022. Applications or supporting documentation received after this date may not be assessed in time for Semester 1 2022.

How to submit your application

Submit your application for credit via email to credit@usc.edu.au.
