Course or campus transfer

You can apply for an internal transfer if you want to transfer:

  • from one Monash coursework degree to another, and/or
  • your course to a different Monash campus.

You can only transfer between the same course type (e.g. from one bachelor degree to another bachelor degree) and only if you haven't completed your course. If you're completing your current course and wish to enrol in another, you'll need to apply as instructed on our find a course page.

Masters by research or doctoral degree students should contact their faculty or Graduate Research about transfers.


Transferring course or campus is part of a competitive selection process. This means that you'll be competing with other students for a place in the course.

The minimum eligibility requirements for a course transfer are:

  • being a current Monash student (you must maintain your enrolment)
  • meeting the prerequisites for the new course
  • performing at an appropriate level in your current course
  • successful completion of at least 12 credit points of a Monash University course.

The actual requirements for transfer may be higher.

These are set by the faculty managing the course, including the number of completed credit points required to be considered for a transfer. Check the course transfer requirements carefully, before making an application for a transfer.

Credit for previous studies

If successful, you may be eligible for credit. Credit is awarded only if your previous studies are relevant to the new course.

After you apply

While you're waiting for the outcome of your application, you need to:

  • stay enrolled in your current course (and re-enrol in units for the following year during the re-enrolment period), and
  • pay any course fees owing for your current enrolment.

If successful, you'll receive an offer for your highest eligible preference (see notification dates in the section below).

If all your course preferences have been declined by the faculty, you'll be notified earlier. You can apply to transfer in the next intake or  discuss alternative paths for entry with the faculty by contacting Monash Connect.

If you’d like to withdraw your course transfer application (before or after the application closing date), contact Monash Connect.

  • deferred final assessments

You’ll still need to respond by the deadline, so you should accept your conditional offer while you wait for your results.
