Academic Standing FAQs

How does Academic Standing work with qualifications that have specific progression requirements?

A number of professional qualifications have progression requirements, ie it is necessary to pass a particular course(s) or at a particular level in order to be able to progress in that qualification.

Specific progression regulations will still be applied. It is possible to fail to progress within a qualification, but still carry on with enrolment at Massey University.

Information on qualification progression can be found in the Calendar within Qualification Regulations under the relevant college and qualification.

Will my Academic Standing impact my funding (including loans and allowances), or visa requirements?

University Academic Standing of Exclusion (Course, Qualification, Long Term) may affect your funding, or your ability to meet your visa requirements.

Enrolment exclusion may affect funding from StudyLink, scholarships or other sources. We advise you to contact your funder to discuss your individual funding situation, and seek advice from our Student Information Services.

For StudyLink implications, please contact the on-campus StudyLink Liaison staff who can guide you through possible options in regard to student loans and allowances. While the decision will ultimately be with StudyLink, our staff will be able to advise you of enrolment options and any effects this may have on future entitlement.

If you are an international student, an exclusion may also impact your visa requirements and scholarship entitlements. Please contact the International Student Support Office to discuss the implications for your visa and/or scholarship.

A University Exclusion will affect your funding and any visa requirements. It is your responsibility to inform your funder, International Student Support Office or Immigration New Zealand of your situation.

A Long Term University Exclusion lasts for a minimum of three years, and requires approval for re-entry. On return from exclusion, there may be conditions for your re-enrolment.

I’m changing my qualification. Does that affect my University Academic Standing?

If you are moving between qualifications at the same level (eg Bachelor of Arts to Bachelor of Business), then you will keep the same University Academic Standing of “Not Applicable”.

Who can I contact for further advice or information?

We have a wide range of resources, support and services that you can access to assist you with your study. If you have any questions about Academic Standing please contact a Student Adviser or Massey Contact.
