Your UAC application number and PIN

After you apply, you'll need your UAC application number and PIN to log back in to your application and to view your offers. You can't use an application number from a previous year. If you’re a 2023 NSW HSC applicant, you also need your UAC PIN to access your ATAR.

Application number

When you complete the personal details section of your application, you'll be emailed your nine-digit 2022–23 UAC application number and your four-digit PIN. Your application number will also be recorded on your Confirmation of Application.

If you're a current Year 12 student, you need to enter your Year 12 student number and a PIN to start your application. We need your student ID details to match your end-of-year results to your application. We also need them if you want to apply for the Schools Recommendation Scheme.

2023 NSW HSC applicants/ACT Year 12 applicants

Your UAC PIN was emailed to the address you registered with NSW Education Standards Authority (NESA) or the ACT Board of Senior Secondary Studies (ACT BSSS) on 5 April 2023 (the day applications opened).

Keep your UAC PIN in a safe and secure place and don't give it to anyone else. For security reasons, recommend that you log in to your application and change your PIN after you've applied.

If your PIN doesn't seem to be working, check that you are using your UAC PIN and not your NESA PIN.

All other 2023 Year 12 applicants

Your UAC PIN is the first four digits of your date of birth (day and month). For example, if your birthday is 3 October, your UAC PIN is 0310; if your birthday is 17 May, your UAC PIN is 1705.

For privacy reasons, we cannot reissue your UAC PIN. However, if you have completed the personal details section of your application and been issued with an application number, you can reset your PIN:

  • Go to the application login page.
  • Enter your application number under 'Manage your application'.
  • Click the ‘Forgotten your PIN?’ link.
