About the module

The Respect at Monash module is part of our commitment to Universities Australia’s Respect. Now. Always. campaign.

In this module, you’ll learn about:

  • your rights and responsibilities
  • how to identify problem behaviour and misconduct
  • maintaining respectful relationships
  • how to be an active bystander
  • safe alcohol consumption.

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 Unit 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).

What you need to do

  1. Make sure you submit the agreement in the Web Enrolment System (WES) which states that you’ll complete the module by the due date.
  2. Complete the Respect at Monash module – just make sure you do this before the deadline.
  3. Retain your proof of completion record.

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 Unit 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). 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 Respect at Monash 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.
