Summary of Changes from Previous Version

This is a new procedure created from previous provisions in the Program and Course Policy.

This is the single source of truth for qualifying for award rules determining GPA and simpler to search for in the Policy Register as a standalone document.

This schedule is now clear that there are no manual or exceptional adjustments to GPA calculations in response to persistent enquiries by students and academic/teaching staff.

Rules regarding the determination of AQF levels with combined bachelor and honours and for honourary doctorates have been clarified.
