Engage with the Student Success team

The Student Success team can provide timely advice and connect you with a range of support and services. 

Connect with AccessAbility Services

AccessAbility Services can provide access to appropriate reasonable adjustments and practical advice about the support and facilities available to you throughout the University. If your studies are affected by a disability, learning disorder, mental health issue, injury or illness, or you are a primary carer for someone with a disability or who is considered frail and aged, you are strongly encouraged to connect with AccessAbility Services as early as possible. Contact us if you are a prospective or current USC student. 

Manage special circumstances

If you are unable to meet the requirements for a course due to special circumstances that arise or worsen after census date, you may be eligible to apply for Withdrawl from Course Due to Special Circumstances to have the financial liability and/or academic penalty for that course removed.  

Review pass rate requirements

From 2022, if you are a commencing student in a Commonwealth Supported Place (CSP) or getting a HELP loan for your study, you must maintain a passing completion rate as defined under the Australian Government’s Job-ready Graduates requirements.

This applies to you if you are a new USC student, or if you are changing from one USC program to another.

Consider reducing work

Consider reducing your work hours to increase the chances of a better academic outcome. It is essential to be able to balance your study load with your work and other life commitments. Many students realise that they need to reduce their work hours to be able to fit in the time required to manage their study load.

Explore financial support

Explore financial support options which may include applying for a Scholarship or Bursary. Saving, budgeting and being aware of Scholarships/Bursaries, student loan opportunities and government assistance are recommended to help you make ends meet financially.

Connect with other students

Connect with other students to enhance your time at university. Consider joining a student club or society, getting involved with the Student Guild, participating in peer learning activities or playing sport to connect with others.
