Respect at Monash online module

Respect at Monash is a compulsory online learning module. It helps our students understand what it means to be a respectful member of the Monash community and promotes an inclusive and diverse culture on campus.

All students and staff can complete the module in the Compulsory Units Portal (CUP). However, the module is compulsory for most students who are beginning their studies at Monash. If you’re not sure whether you need to complete this module, check in the Web Enrolment System (WES) on the Enrolment Summary screen (your compulsory modules will be listed in the Status column).

If you’re required to complete the module, you’ll need to do this by:

  • 30 April, if your studies start in the first half of the year
  • 30 September, if your studies start in the second half of the year.

Record of completion

This module is not graded, so even after completion, the grade will always be 0%. Once the module is completed, your progress will show as 100% on the Compulsory Units Portal (CUP) dashboard.

If you signed into CUP with your Monash student account, your progress will also be recorded in the Web Enrolment System (WES) (it takes about 15 minutes), if you’re required to complete the module. However, if you signed into CUP using a personal email account (or you’re an MRS student), your student record won’t be automatically updated. We’ll need to merge your personal CUP account with your Monash account to get the completion of the module recorded in WES. Just submit an online account merge request.

You can check which email address is linked to your account in CUP under the profile icon in the top left corner.

What happens if you don’t complete the module

If you’re a new student, you need to complete the module before the deadline to avoid being encumbered. An encumbrance limits your access to essential University systems and services, including exam results, the library, re-enrolment, assignment submission, and graduation.
