*This question is specific to OUA students only*

Unit Coordinators need several weeks to mark exam papers and determine final grades, so it is not possible to provide final grades less than 4 weeks after the exam. In special circumstances, such as immigration, university admission or entry into a professional Australian accounting body, you can request the early release of your final grade. All requests for early release of final grades must be made by emailing and must include the following supporting documentation as an attachment:

  • If you are required to complete specific units to meet the requirements of either the Certified Practicing Accountants (CPA) Australia or the Institute of Chartered Accountants in Australia (ICAA), a letter from the CPA or the ICAA stating the date your final grade is required
  • For university admission, a letter or other documentation from the university or tertiary admission centre stating when they need to be notified of your final grade in order to process your application for admission
  • For immigration purposes, a letter from Department of Immigration and Multicultural and Indigenous Affairs (DIMIA) indicating the date when your migration application needs to be lodged
  • Requests for early release of final grades must be submitted by Friday of week 12. Your request will then be forwarded to the Unit Coordinator for a decision.
