Summary of Changes from Previous Version

Micro Credentials: The use of approved combinations of micro-credentials for credit and recognition of prior learning consideration has been documented to meet the increased development and delivery of micro-credentials. Transfer of grade: The principle for applying credit for previous RMIT study now requires that where there is a one-to-one match on a course used for credit, the RMIT grade retained on the student record. This results in a more accurate representation of student achievements and GPA calculation. Removal of credit: The process for students to request the removal of credit has been formalised and ensures alignment with international compliance requirements.
