Important Information

During the comment process you are connected to a database. Like internet banking, the session that connects you to the database may time-out due to inactivity. If you do not have JavaScript running you will recieve a message to advise you of the length of time before the time-out. If you have JavaScript enabled, the time-out is lengthy and should not cause difficulty, however you should note the following tips to avoid losing your comments or corrupting your entries:

  1. DO NOT jump between web pages/applications while logging comments.

  2. DO NOT log comments for more than one document at a time. Complete and submit all comments for one document before commenting on another.

  3. DO NOT leave your submission half way through. If you need to take a break, submit your current set of comments. The system will email you a copy of your comments so you can identify where you were up to and add to them later.

  4. DO NOT exit from the interface until you have completed all three stages of the submission process.

Section 4 - Guideline


(4) An articulation agreement is an agreement between organisational components of the RMIT Group or between RMIT and another tertiary institution, industry partner or other entity by which eligible students may receive entry into an RMIT program and/or defined amounts of credit towards an RMIT program.

(5) Some articulation arrangements may require a signed agreement by all parties which may include an annexure/schedule that outlines what has been agreed. Some articulation agreements will only require a written agreement signed by RMIT that details the agreed arrangement including any credit.

(6) Articulation agreements must take into consideration all RMIT entities who offer the same program.

(7) The following officers or committees of the destination program may approve articulation agreements made within the RMIT Group, between RMIT University and another Australian or international tertiary institution: 

  1. for articulation agreements for coursework programs, the relevant Deputy Vice-Chancellor(s) or nominee(s) 
  2. for articulation agreements for higher degree by research programs, the Research Committee

(8) Where a contractual agreement is required, this must be in accordance with the Delegation of Authority Policy.

(9) When negotiating credit to be awarded with other institutions or internal to RMIT, the University will seek to maximise the credit available to students and should take into consideration the maximum credit allowed as detailed under the Credit Procedure.  

(10) The Academic Registrar may approve to extend the maximum amount of credit allowed to be granted towards an RMIT coursework program based on studies undertaken at RMIT or from another institution, where all parties are in agreement.

(11) Articulation agreements must detail when the agreement will expire and will undergo a formal approval process to be renewed. The agreement must also include a provision that allows an agreement to change before it is due to expire where there is a change to either the program that affects the agreement and any credit that may be awarded.
