Credit Transfer

Credit Transfer can be applied if a student has completed previous studies with another education provider that are identical to the course they are currently enrolled for. If applicable, it reduces the number of units or modules that the student is required to complete for the course that they are enrolled in at Alice Spring College.

Alice Spring College also grants Credit for subjects or units you have completed where equivalence can be established between the unit/ module in your course, and the subject or unit you have completed.

Applying for Credit Transfer is free of charge.

To apply for Credit Transfer, please fill in the Credit Transfer Application Form and submit it to along with your enrolment form.

Please make sure to attach copies of verified transcripts from your previous studies to support your application. In some cases we may ask for additional information about the subject or unit from your previous studies so we can determine equivalence.

You will be notified of the outcome of your Credit Transfer Application.


Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) is a procedure in which skills and knowledge that you have developed through employment, life experience, and/or other unrecognised training can receive formal recognition provided that they are relevant to the course outcomes.

Receiving Recognition of Prior Learning allows students to focus on more specific areas of competence needed to attain your qualification/s. Should you already possess some of the areas of competence taught in your course, you may apply for Recognition of Prior Learning.

Students must provide evidence that they have achieved the required units of competence and may only apply for RPL during or after enrolment and payment of fees. The RPL Application Form will be provided to you during your orientation, and you may ask about whether you are suitable or not for RPL. Please attach verified copies of all relevant documents to your RPL Application Form and submit it to

For more information about applying for RPL, please contact the head office.
