Accepting your offer

Most institutions require you to accept your offer online. Log in to 'Check your offers' or the My UAC app using your UAC PIN and UAC application number. You'll be given either a link to accept your offer or further information about how to accept it.

Accept your offer by the date specified by the institution, otherwise you may lose your offer. Don’t let your offer lapse. If you have questions, contact the institution making the offer.

If you receive an offer in one round, don't assume that you'll receive another offer in a subsequent round. If you don't accept your offer and you don't receive an offer in a subsequent round, you may miss out on being able to study at university in 2017.

Accepting an offer doesn't stop you from being considered in subsequent offer rounds unless it is your first preference. If you receive an offer in one round and accept it, and then receive an offer in a later round, you can choose either to:

  • keep your previous offer and not accept your new offer
  • withdraw from your previous offer and accept your new offer.


Each institution has its own procedures for enrolment.

When you apply, make sure the name on your application matches your official ID (birth certificate, passport, citizenship documents). You'll need your ID when you enrol and there may be problems if the name on your ID doesn't match your offer letter.

Advanced standing/academic credit

If you have already studied at tertiary level, you may get credit for those studies when you enrol. Each institution has its own policy regarding advanced standing/academic credit, which you should check carefully.
