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.

If you receive an offer in one round, don't assume that you'll receive another offer in a later round.

Accept any offer you receive by following the instructions the institution gives you. You must accept your offer by the date indicated in your offer material, otherwise your offer will lapse and it may go to another applicant in the next round. If you have questions, contact the institution making the offer.

Accepting an offer doesn't stop you from being considered in later offer rounds, as long as you remove the successful course from your preferences list to prevent it blocking offers to lower preferences in future rounds.

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, or
  • accept your new offer and withdraw from the course you've already accepted.

Once you accept your offer, the next step is enrolment.

Enrolling

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.

After you enrol in a course, you have until the census date at the end of March to pay your fees, sign up for a HECS-HELP or FEE-HELP loan, or withdraw without penalty from the course.

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.
