The course prior credit packet is used to report the credit values and codes (E560, E561 and E566) when credit is applied towards the requirements of the course for the student. A course prior credit packet for a course admission will be created as part of the course admission packet if the provider reports credit values and codes (E560, E561 and E566) when the course admission packet is established. A provider may create as many additional course prior credit packets as necessary to add additional credits that are applied to a course for the student.

Scope

Providers are required to report a course prior credit packet only when credit is applied to a course for a student and:

  • credit is received from more than one source of credit (E561 or E566); or
  • credit was not reported as part of the original course admission packet.

Initial reporting requirement

Element Required reporting Deadline
*E560: Credit used value Required if credit is used Within 14 days of the first census date linked to the course admission or 7 days of credit being applied to the student's course
*E561: Credit basis code Required if credit is used Within 14 days of the first census date linked to the course admission or 7 days of credit being applied to the student's course
E566: Credit provider code Required if E561 has study at an Australian provider as a credit basis Within 14 days of the first census date linked to the course admission or 7 days of credit being applied to the student's course

*These elements must be reported together when a new course prior credit packet is created

Uniqueness

Not applicable.

Revising data

A provider can update or correct the data in a course prior credit packet after the initial packet is reported. All values on a course prior credit packet are to be correct as at the current date or the course outcome date (E592), whichever date is earlier.
