The Information Systems major is acredited by the Australian Computer Society (ACS). The ACS accredits each campus individually; therefore students should check the current status of accreditation for newly established locations. For enquiries concerning eligibility or membership, please refer to the ACS official website http://www.acs.org.au/

The Supply Chain Management major is accredited by the Chartered Institute of Purchasing and Supply (CIPS). Graduates may apply for membership of CIPS.

Application for credit transfer

Exemption/credit transfer will only be granted where a student is able to demonstrate that they have completed and received a 'Pass' or above in tertiary studies equivalent in content, depth and rated units of credit to a Bachelor of Accounting/Bachelor of Business course, and that such credit meets the requirements of the professional bodies that accredit the program. Students must contact the relevant professional bodies to determine whether the credit transfer/exemption they have requested and/or received will affect their application for membership.

Refer to the Credit Transfer website at http://www.cqu.edu.au/credittransfer for further details on the guidelines and application process.
