Recognition of Previous Education

Recognition of Prior Education Credit Transfer/Articulation

In many cases you will be able to map your previous learning to ACPE courses using the Articulation Abacus. This online tool allows you to compare your possible advanced standing towards different degrees offered by ACPE.

Please note: The Articulation Abacus is a guide only and all applications will be individually assessed. Outcomes may vary slightly from that indicated on the Articulation Abacus.

Before you can apply for advanced standing towards your chosen degree please get in touch with our friendly Student Recruitment team who can check your eligibility to study and provide any additional information. To speak with an ACPE Student Recruitment team member call 1300 302 867 or email

Once you are ready to apply for advanced standing please use one of the application forms below.
