Academic Progress/Completion Rate Information

All ANU students within an undergraduate or postgraduate academic career are required to maintain satisfactory academic progression; this means you must meet the minimum academic performance requirements as established by the University within the Academic Progress Rule. 

Beyond ANU's progression requirements, the Federal Government identifies a 'low completion rate' as when you have a fail rate of more than 50 per cent of the courses of study you have attempted, after you have attempted eight or more courses of study in a bachelor leveel or higher program (or four or more courses in a higher education program lower than a bachelor program). A low completion rate can affect your access to a Commonwealth Supported Place (CSP) and/or FEE-HELP. 

More information regarding expected academic performance for coursework students can be found on this webpage. More information on low completion rates is available here

Mental health and wellbeing support services

If you are feeling anxious or need some extra support, there are a range of services available to you. To find out more, please visit the Health, safety and wellbeing webpage

How do I view my results on ISIS?

I can't see my grades on ISIS, what do I do? 

Grades are viewable in ISIS from 3.00pm AEST/AEDT on grade release day. If you cannot view them after this time, your grades may not yet be finalised or they may be withheld due to administrative reasons.
Have you paid your fees or need to verify your identity? Please carefully read the advice within your ISIS homepage.

The ISIS website is also likely experiencing a high level of traffic from students like you eager to see their results! Please wait a short while before attempting to log in again.

Why do I have an interim grade? 

If you've received a Supplementary Assessment (PX) or Deferred Assessment (DA) grade, you will be offered another chance to complete this examination.

Your Academic College will set the timing of Supplementary and Deferred Examinations at their discretion. 

I didn't get the grades that I wanted. What are my options?
