‡Lower amount of credit applied if students are required to undertake language enhancement course (unless students have an IELTS 7.0)

§Students commencing in June for a pathway to a bachelor degree with only a trimester 1 intake, will be issued a 2 trimester offer, and they will need to pass the maths quiz to be exempted from CME100. If they do not pass the quiz, they will need to study CME100 and in turn their duration for their duration program will be extended to 3 trimesters. This will result in their progression to the bachelor degree being delayed until trimester 1 of the following year.

*Provided required elective courses have been completed at Griffith College. Lower amount of credit for extended majors if 5903LHS required.
