Academic Conduct Report

Find out how to request an Academic Conduct Report to support your application for admission to practice law.

Content of the Academic Conduct Report

An Academic Conduct Report covers all your studies at RMIT and is comprised of:

  • a letter advising whether there are any records or reports of concerning behaviours during your enrolment at RMIT; and
  • your transcript (for all enrolments).

The report is emailed to the Victorian Legal Admissions Board (VLAB) with a copy to your registered email address.

How long does it take for an Academic Conduct Report to be issued?

The report usually takes up to two weeks, unless clarification is required, either from you or an RMIT department providing advice to inform the report.

We recommend requesting your report at least three weeks before your application and payment deadline.

Please also note the following information which may impact your decision when to request your report:

  • RMIT closes for approximately 10 days over Christmas and New Year
  • RMIT closes for approximately 5 days over Easter (March/April each year)
  • Victorian Legal Admissions Board's Admission calendar
  • The Legal Profession Uniform Admission Rules 2015, clause 19 (2), state that the report must be prepared within 6 months before the application is made
  • Currently, RMIT will provide you with one free Academic Conduct Report.
