You should accept the offer you were given. However, if you receive a different offer in the Late or Final Rounds, you will need to notify the Faculty in writing that you wish to withdraw from the first course you enrolled in and enrol as instructed in your second offer.
If you have not received the offer you want at the end of the Final Round, you should stay enrolled in your current course providing you are still happy to continue with studying that course. You may apply to transfer to your chosen course through UAC in September 2012 for Semester 1, 2013. Transfers are however not guaranteed. If seeking to transfer, we strongly recommend you chose subjects in 2013 that you likely to enjoy, which will allow you to have a more positive academic experience, hopefully improving your chances of transferring into your preferred degree.
You may apply for credit in circumstances where your previous studies meet the required criteria. The Faculty will access all students who have previous studies to confirm if you are eligible for credit prior to enrolment, and will contact you separately via email with further instructions. Students, who do not receive this email but believe they may still be eligible to apply for credit, can discuss this further with the Faculty’s Credit Officer on the day of your enrolment.
