Most 2017 Year 12 students don't need to provide documents to support their application. UAC automatically receives your Year 12 results and employment experience is generally not taken into consideration. However, you’ll be encouraged to supply documentary evidence of your Australian citizenship in order to speed up the admission and enrolment process if you receive an offer.
If you do need to provide documents to UAC, you'll be told in your application confirmation package, which you'll be prompted to download when you complete your application through UAC.
Your confirmation package will include your Confirmation of Application and your receipt of payment. If you need to provide UAC with documents, your package will also include a cover sheet titled:
Follow the instructions on the cover sheet to supply the required documents. Some documents, such as qualification transcripts, can be either uploaded via your application or posted or delivered to UAC. Other documents, such as a personal statement, CV, questionnaire or portfolio, can only be uploaded through your application.
If you need to send any documents directly to the institutions, they will be indicated in your Confirmation of Application as part of your preference details. You can also check if there are any additional requirements for your course by reading the course descriptions available through the course search.

Documents UAC can obtain on your behalf
In most cases, UAC can get your results from study at the following institutions without you having to supply us with copies of your documents:
- Australian Year 12 assessment authorities
- Australian universities
- TAFE NSW from 2008
- TAFE ACT (CIT).
However, most institutions won't release academic records to UAC if you owe money to them (eg library fines). Non-release of your records may result in you not receiving an offer. UAC can't assess qualifications using transcripts supplied by the applicant if non-release status has been advised by an institution.
