ACT Cross Institutional Studies






Cross Institutional Enrolments are available through the Australian College of Theology. Application forms are available from your primary sponsoring ACT college.  All applicants need to ensure that once completed, the application form should be lodged well in advance of the various deadlines, as later applications will not be accepted.


Definition of Cross Institution Student

Students  who  are  currently enrolled  in  an  award  at  another  Higher  Education  Provider

providing documentary evidence that nominated units completed at the ACT will count towards that particular award.


Documentation needed

For the purposes of Cross Institutional study, the ACT is the “host institution” and your

current non-ACT college is the “home institution”.


Original documents required include:

  • A current official transcript of your current program of study available from your home institution. Certified copies are also acceptable.
  • You will also need to provide the ACT with a letter of authority from your home institution, stating clearly that you have permission to undertake Cross Institutional study at the ACT in the units of study concerned.
  • Cross Institution students will pay for any unit(s) undertaken at the ACT (i.e. pay up- front, or submit a FEE-HELP application form to the ACT).


The  above  documents  should  be  supplied  to  your  primary sponsoring  ACT  college  for application.



As an enrolled cross institution student you cannot add any units to your approved program.


To withdraw from a cross institution unit you must complete a change of enrolment form at your primary sponsoring ACT college.  Any withdrawal from a cross institution unit must be completed before the census date.  Failure to do so will lead to both academic and financial penalties.
