ExemptionOfModule(s)DueToCurriculumChangeacademic

In terms of the Assessment Strategy and Policy (IIE009) an application for "exemption due to curriculum change" (ECC) can be made where modules have been phased out with no replacement modules OR where the qualification has been phased out.


ECC: Phase out of Modules with no  Replacement 
This provision can be applied for students who have failed the discontinuation examination or students who have returned to study within the maximum completion time but were not registered in the last year in which a module was offered and thus did not get the opportunity to write the discontinuation examination. 
If no more than two modules are outstanding to complete the qualification, and for which there are no replacement modules, the two modules will be marked on the transcript as having been "exempted due to curriculum change (ECC), provided that the credits for the module(s) are less than 20% of the total credits for the qualification. If the credits are more than 20%, then the student will have to complete the respective module(s) externally or register for a different qualification. ECC cannot be granted for core modules as identified by the Faculty – the student will either not graduate or needs to complete a similar module elsewhere for which AC can be granted or transfer to another qualification.


ECC: Phase Out Qualifications:
Where a qualification has been phased out and there are students, including those that have failed special examinations, with no more than two modules to complete who are still within the original maximum time for the qualification, the following scenarios are possible:

  • If they have previously attempted the module they can write the special examination and a discontinuation examination if the module is still available; or
  • They can repeat a replacement module where there is one for the two modules that they still require; or
  • If there is no replacement module available their transcript can, for no more than two modules, be marked as having been "exempted due to curriculum change (ECC)"; provided that the credits for the module(s) are less than 20% of the total credits for the qualification. If the credits are more than 20%, then the student will have to complete the respective module(s) externally or register for a different qualification. ECC cannot be granted for core modules as identified by the Faculty – the student will either not graduate or needs to complete a similar module elsewhere for which AC can be granted or transfer to another qualification.

 

PLEASE NOTE:

  • Where the replacement module does not have the same credit value as the original module, a Senate condonation needs to be sought by the Faculty.
  • Students are required to complete a replacement module or the same module at another campus if it is available – they are exempt from attendance but are required to complete assessment requirements.  ECC will not be granted to any students for which a replacement module is available at any site within the same city as the campus on which the student originally registered.
  • ECC does not apply to SLPs or SLP bundles.
  • Where a qualification has been phased out and a student has more than two modules to complete and there are no replacement modules s/he is required to apply for credits onto a new qualification and to complete that qualification if s/he wishes to graduate. If such a student has exceeded maximum completion time but the qualification is still open on the student administration system (three years after the last ordinary cohort has graduated) and there are replacement modules available the student may apply for an extension of completion time and complete the modules for award of the original qualification.

Once the qualification has been closed on the student administration system (three years after the last ordinary cohort has graduated) a student must apply for credits onto a new qualification and complete that qualification to graduate.

ExternalCreditRequestacademic

Student needs to provide original academic record (proof of subjects/modules passed/portfolio of evidence). *

 

Documentation detailing the learning outcomes for each module / unit standard. The name and content page of the prescribed textbook is not sufficient. Outcomes and information related to the programme/ course studied that will enable assessment of outcomes, credits and content are required.*

 

In the case of non-South African qualifications:

  • SAQA equivalence assessment of the qualification, outcomes and information related to the programme/ course studied that will enable the same assessment as for local qualification.*
  • Proof of the accreditation status of the institution and qualification in the country of origin.

 

PLEASE NOTE: Provision of detail in regard to the outcomes (module), contact time and method of assessment may be requested if the application cannot be finalised without them.

  
IncreasedCreditLoadacademic

For students who are applying for a credit load of more than 180 credits.

 

In terms of the Credit Accumulation and Transfer, Recognition of Prior Learning and Qualification Completion Policy (IIE010), Section 8.1, "A "normal" workload for an academic year is 120 credits or 1200 notional hours of learning at undergraduate level. The credit load for students in any year of study is capped at 180 credits, including repeat subjects. 

The following principles apply – applications that fall outside of these principles need to be declined:

  • A credit load of up to 180 credits is normally approved if one third of the modules being undertaken are repeat modules – where less than one third of the modules are being repeated care should be taken with approving the load as students will be under significant pressure;
  • A credit load of more than 180 credits per year will be approved where the qualification is in phase-out and where the student is repeating at least one third of the modules for which s/he wishes to register in that year; and
  • A credit load of more than 180 credits per year will be approved for a student where the credit value of one module is the reason that the total is in excess of 180 credits and where removing the modules of the lowest value would have resulted in a value of 180 credits or less.  (Example: Five modules of 25 credits each; four modules of 20 credits each would give you 205 credits – removing one module of 20 credits would give you a total of 185 credits which is still over 180 credits and the student would therefore not be permitted to carry this load.  Removing a second 20 credit module would give you a total of 165 credits – that is, the only reason the total is over 180 credits is due to the value of this module and the student would be below 180 credits if this module was removed.  In this case the student would be permitted to do the five modules of 25 credits and three modules of 20 credits each but would not be permitted to do the fourth 20 credit module.

Applications need to be processed within two weeks of registration as this would impact on the student's billing.
