Academic assessment – Admissions-Southern Cross University

Academic Assessment

Academic Assessment (AA) is an opportunity for onshore applicants, who do not meet the Direct Entry Requirements, to be admitted to SCU.

Students qualifying for an AA will have their applications reviewed and, if they meet the requirement of the AA, will be interviewed to assess their eligibility for admission. All students admitted under AA will be subject to clear academic monitoring compliance requirements.

Students seeking admission under AA will be subject to strict qualification, documentation and Statement of Purpose (SOP) requirements. It is very important that the application process is taken seriously and that all questions are answered and all relevant documentation is provided at the time of application for AA.

Failure to provide the required evidence will result in automatic rejection of an application.

Note: Where Academic Assessment is being applied for on the basis of mental health reasons, the applicant must provide the relevant medical documentation from a registered mental health professional (Psychologist or Psychiatrist). A letter from a General Practitioner will not be accepted for mental health reasons. It is also important to note that any medical or mental documentation must indicate ongoing sessions with the medical professional and not simply a ‘one-off’ visit.
