How can I return to Good Standing?

Identifying the factors that may have led to your supported, conditional or exclusion status will be the first steps you should take in returning to Good Standing.

Use the table below to assist you in identifying the issue you may have had and the type of action you may take to overcome these. You can also speak to a Student Adviser if you are finding it difficult to assess what the underlying problems are.

What was the problem? Action I can take

The units I studied were difficult

  • PASS is available in a number of units that have been found to be difficult by numbers of students,
  • You may seek enrolment advice to explore other options or consider reducing your study load (International students cannot do so without faculty permission)

I found it difficult to get motivated and manage my time

I had financial problems

Talk to a Student Adviser to find out more about financial assistance and counselling services.

I felt like I wasn't prepared for university-level studies

Consider spending some time in a pathways course or the University Preparation Program to consolidate your core academic skills before re-commencing your current course.

My disability, health condition or mental health impacted on my study

Make an appointment with a Disability Adviser to discuss options for Learning Access Plans (LAPs), exam accommodations and facilities access.

I was treated unfairly

  • You may be able to request a Review of Assessment.
  • Your Student Advocate can assist with outlining options and engaging with complaints and appeals processes

The course I was studying didn't turn out how I expected

Make an appointment with a Careers Adviser through Career Hub. You can follow up by seeking enrolment advice about an alternative degree.

Returning to good standing is an achievable goal if you engage with the support on offer and make informed course and pathways choices, so don't give up.
