Academic course progression
Did you receive an Under Review or Unsatisfactory Progress Notice?
During your studies, CDU will keep an eye on your progression to ensure you're on track to complete your course. This only applies to Higher Education students and excludes Higher Degree by Research Students.
All students start their Higher Education course with a 'satisfactory' academic status.
We recognise that your academic performance may vary during your studies due to a range of factors. By monitoring your academic progress, we can identify if you are at risk early and find the proper support to help you achieve success and finish your degree.
For detailed information on course progression, you can download the Higher Education Students Progression Procedures (PDF 84KB) or view the Progression Flow Chart (PDF 68KB).
Your academic performance will be assessed twice a year. This will happen after the release of grades at the end of semester 1 and 2.

- assesses your academic performance in Semester 1 and Study Period 1 of the current year
- evaluates your academic performance in Study Period 4 and Summer Semester of the previous year
- Progression Period 2
- evaluates your academic performance in Semester 2, Semester 3, Study Period 2 and Study Period 3.
