There are different procedures for changing or adding a program, depending on which new program you want to study, and whether you are making the change for Semester 1 or Semester 2.

We encourage you to visit a Student Centre, or to contact UQ Admissions if you have any questions.

How to change your program for Semester 1 study

Program change type Procedures
Single program to single program Apply through QTAC.
 
  • Consult the QTAC website for relevant application procedures and deadlines.
Single program to dual program Consult the Dual Program Change Table (PDF, 80KB) to determine whether you should lodge a program change request through mySI-net, or whether you need to apply through QTAC.

  1. Consult the Academic Calendar for the Semester 1 due date for program change requests through mySI-net.
  2. Log in to mySI-net.

Dual program to single program If you’re enrolled in a dual program – or you’ve just received an offer from QTAC to study a dual program – and you want to drop one of the dual program’s component degrees, you can lodge a program change request through mySI-net.

If you’re studying a dual program and you want to switch to a single program that isn’t one of the component degrees in your dual program, you will need to apply through QTAC.

How to change your program for Semester 2 study

If you’re applying to change your program for Semester 2, you must ensure the new program has a mid-year / Semester 2 intake.

Check Courses and Programs to determine whether a program commences in Semester 2.

For some changes in Semester 2 (e.g. for some dual programs), you may be able to apply for a non-standard program change.

How to change a program for Semester 2 depend on whether you were enrolled in Semester 1 of the same year.

Procedures apply to both single programs and dual programs.

Enrolment in Semester 1 of the same year  

Procedures

I was enrolled in Semester 1

Apply through mySI-net.

  1. Check Courses and Programs to ensure the new program has a Semester 2 intake.
  2. Consult the Academic Calendar for the Semester 2 due date for program change requests through mySI-net.
  3. Log in to mySI-net.
  4. Click myRequests > Program Change Request.

The entry rank for the new program will be the entry rank cut-off for Semester 1 of the same calendar year.

I wasn’t enrolled in Semester 1

Apply through QTAC.

  1. Check Courses and Programs to ensure the new program has a Semester 2 intake.
  2. Consult the QTAC website for relevant application procedures and deadlines.

Non-standard program changes

For some Semester 2 program changes you may have to apply for a non-standard program change.

A non-standard program change happens in situations like these:

  • Student X studied the Bachelor of Laws (Honours) in Semester 1 and wants to study a dual degree – the Bachelors of Arts/Laws (Honours) – in Semester 2. The dual Bachelors of Arts/Laws (Honours) program doesn’t have a Semester 2 intake, but the single Bachelor of Arts program does.
  • Student Y studied the Bachelors of Nursing/Midwifery dual degree in Semester 1 and wants to drop nursing and focus on midwifery exclusively from Semester 2. The Bachelor of Midwifery single program doesn’t have a Semester 2 intake.

In both of these situations the student should send an email to their faculty and request a non-standard program change.

I was previously enrolled in a program I want to change back into. What should I do?
Contact your faculty or visit a Student Centre to find out if you have retained your place in the program. If you have retained your place, then we can reactivate the program in your student record. If you have not retained your place, you will need to re-apply via QTAC.
