CASS Degrees and Program Plans

To check a CASS program:

  1. Download the specific program plan. (Note that Year and Plan are separate links in the table below).

    Single degree students must complete 144 units (24 courses x 6 units per course). they have 48 units of electives. The plans below list the 48 units of electives for each program.

    Flexible Double Degree students must complete 96 units (16 courses x 6 units per course) per program. They do not have 48 units of electives in each program. Use the plans below to check your degree, but disregard 48 units listed on the plan. If you are in two CASS programs, download and complete both degree plans for each of your degrees.

    Bachelor of Arts students have both the single and Flexible Double degree versions of their degree.

  2. Fill it in using the link to the year started. Each block in the plan represents 6 units/one course (for example: POLS1005). Use one block per course. If you have completed a 12 unit course, use two blocks. Use the link to the degree rules listed to help work out your program, and access major/minor/specialisation/program lists.
  3. Students may bring the completed plan to a CASS Undergraduate drop in session for checking.
  4. If you started your degree before 2014, you should consult the Study @ site. Students have 10 years maximum to complete their degree programs.

Please note:

  • Students are required to follow the rules of their program/programs according to the year that they started. Students who change their degree through a program transfer should follow the rules of the program/programs according to the year they started the new program/programs. However, students now have an option that if they start a program and then transfer to a new program they may elect to follow the rules of the program according to the original year they started. If students choose this option, they must send an email to students [dot] cass [at] anu [dot] edu [dot] au to advise the student office to note this on the transcript. When you fill in your plan, please state which year's rules you are following on the top of the plan.
    Example: A student starts a BA in 2014. If they were to stay in the BA, they must follow the 2014 rules (including which majors and minors they can choose). If they were to program transfer to a BA/BPPE in 2016, they would have to follow the 2016 rules for the BPPE. However, they may choose to follow the 2014 rules for the BA instead of the 2016 if they prefer. 
  • In college/out of college courses: Students in single degrees have a maximum of 48 units of elective credit that can come from courses that are considered "out of college." FDD students have NO PROVISION for out of college courses in their CASS degrees. A CASS course is defined as being a course that appears in a major, minor or specialisation in the Bachelor of Arts, or offered by CASS, of any year.
  • If a student is undertaking a degree and new courses are added to the major, minor, specialisations or program lists in years consequent to the year's rules they are following, these courses can count retrospectively.
  • Students are expected to complete their degree according to the rules that were in place at the time they enrolled. So, a student who enrolled in a Bachelor of Arts in 2018 is expected to complete the 2018 version of the program, even if the program has evolved. Students are allowed to count courses that have been more recently added to Majors, Minors, and Specialisations. That is, a student who enrolled in 2018 and intends to complete a Major in Political Science may be allowed to count a course that was added to that Major in 2019. They will not be allowed to count Majors, Minors, and Specialisations that were not named in the version of the degree in which they are enrolled.
