Eligibility and Entry Requirements 

Who is eligible for a credit transfer? 

Future Skills learners, Australian domestic RMIT, and international offshore students are eligible for a credit pathway into RMIT programs.  

What are the conditions or requirements of a credit transfer? 

The conditions for a credit transfer are:  

  1. You must complete at least two Future Skills courses (including passing all the required assessments) matched to one specified RMIT course. 

  1. One (1) RMIT Online Future Skills course can only be used once, with another RMIT Online Future Skills course, to get a credit pathway into one (1) RMIT program. 

  1. You must claim the credit pathway within the validity period of 10 years as per RMIT's Credit Policy.  

  1. You must meet the RMIT program’s academic and English requirements 

  1. The credit transfer process applies to domestic and international offshore students only. Onshore international students are not eligible to undertake Future Skills courses for credit into RMIT degrees. If you intend to become an onshore international student (living in Australia under a Visa) you may undertake Future Skills short courses, but you are not eligible for a credit transfer. Temporary students without a student visa are also not eligible for a credit transfer.

  2. Future Skills learners who completed their courses prior to March 16, 2021 are not eligible to seek credit but may seek RPL by completing a Higher education application for RPL assessment form. The reason for that is that the increased academic oversight on courses was applied after that date. That oversight enables credit. RMIT Online does not approve RPL or credit applications. ​
