If I transfer between degrees, does my Grade Point Average remain the same or does it start afresh?

Question:

If I transfer between degrees, does my Grade Point Average remain the same or does it start afresh?

Answer:

If you are changing to a different degree (eg from BA to BCom), there is a new process starting in Session 2, 2015 that consists of the following four stages:

  1. Your current course will be discontinued.
  2. A new admission will be made for the newest curriculum for your chosen course.
  3. All the units you've previously passed, and any designated credits and exemptions will be transferred to your new course, provided they can be mapped into the required or elective space in the new degree. Units which you have failed or withdrawn from will not be transferred, but they will remain on your transcript under your previous admission.
  4. Each course (your old degree and your new degree) will have its own GPA.

If you are changing to the newest curriculum of your current degree, a new major in a different faculty, or a new 2015 major, your current course will be updated to the newest curriculum and your GPA will continue.
