Making the switch
If you are a current Griffith undergraduate student, you can apply for an internal transfer if you wish to study another Griffith undergraduate program.
You can apply for an internal transfer if you are:
- a current continuing undergraduate student
- a commencing undergraduate student
- on leave or returning from leave of absence
- entitled to readmission
- a deferred student.
You can apply for an internal transfer if you are a current continuing undergraduate student.
If you haven't started at Griffith yet and want to change your program, campus or defer your start date you will need to submit a new application via the International Online Application System.

Unsuccessful outcome and options

This process is often called 'upgrading' or 'admission pathways'.
