Late (unplanned) change processes have been put in place to allow for the speedy approval of urgent change requests.
These necessary changes, outside of the ordinary change processes and timelines, are required to resolve enrolment issues or make other unplanned changes to approved units and courses published in the current handbook. This process is applicable for both UWA Courses and pre-2012 units.
Fast-track changes are minor changes to units to resolve enrolment issues or correct Handbook information, open during the standard enrolment periods before each semester.
Unforeseen circumstances changes are necessary changes to any field at any time, depending on stakeholder, system and process requirements and requiring detailed justifications from the Faculty.
The fast-track process applies to urgent minor changes to units which will have no impact on students. It is opened twice a year: November to February for urgent changes for Semester 1 units and June to August for urgent changes for Semester 2 units.
According to UP11/46 University Policy on: Changes to Units 1.1, changes to units must only be made where there are sound academic or administrative reasons. They should ensure:
This process applies to urgent (major) changes to units and courses with impact on students. If an urgent change is required due to unforeseen circumstances, contact your Faculty for the relevant processes specific to your Faculty. Faculty Curriculum Officers should submit an unforeseen circumstances request via CAIDi on the 'Changes' tab, under 'Changes due to unforeseen circumstances'. A detailed justification needs to be provided, and should include the following:
Your request will be assessed by the relevant Executive Officer and the field for change will be opened as a fast-track in CAIDi. Requests will be considered based on, for example, the timing of the change, the fields changed, appropriate governance and approvals, and possible consequences on stakeholders and timelines.
Valid approval information includes a faculty board resolution number or, in most cases, the approval of the Faculty Dean or other delegated authority.
It is intended that late change requests will be actioned as soon as they are received and a response will be sent to the Faculty and the relevant stakeholders as quickly as possible.
