How to accept an offer and enrol
Applications for mid-year entry
If you’ve been made an offer to study with us, congratulations!
The next step is to accept your offer. You do this by enrolling in your chosen course during January/February.
For domestic students, there are five steps you need to take to prepare for your enrolment:
- Find out the time, date and location of your scheduled enrolment session. Details about when and where to enrol will be available in December.
- Research your course requirements and the units of study that you want to enrol for (or get more academic advice about) on enrolment day. This information is available online in the faculty handbooks.
- If you have been offered a Commonwealth-supported place, make sure you understand what that means, and what you need to do regarding your financial arrangements when you enrol. Learn more about Commonwealth supported places on the federal government's Study Assist website.
- Make sure you know exactly what you need to do when you enrol, and figure out everything you need to bring on the day to complete your enrolment.
- Attend your scheduled enrolment session in person (or send in a proxy to act on your behalf).
Here is a checklist of things you need to bring on the day:
- photo identification
- UAC offer letter
- your current address and phone details (including your mobile phone number)
- the units of study you wish to enrol for (or seek academic advice about)
- your Tax File Number (TFN) or Certificate of Application for a TFN, if you are enrolling as a Commonwealth-supported student.
Other things you may need to bring:
- if you are a permanent resident – the date your permanent residency was granted
- if your citizenship status has recently changed – evidence of your new status
- if you are applying for credit or advance standing – documentation of previous study to support your claim, such as an academic transcript and unit of study outlines
- if you are acting as a proxy for an applicant – a signed copy of the proxy authorisation form
- any faculty-specific requirements for entry to your course.
If you are unable to attend your scheduled enrolment session you will need to arrange for another person to act on your behalf. This is called a proxy enrolment.
There are six steps to proxy enrolment:
- Find out the time, date and location of your scheduled enrolment session.
- Select a person who can act on your behalf on enrolment day. This could be a friend, classmate from school, parent, sibling, or another relative.
- Download, complete and sign an Authority to Enrol (Proxy Enrolment) form, or write and sign a letter authorising your nominated person to act as your proxy during enrolment.
- Provide clear and comprehensive instructions to your proxy about what they need to do on enrolment day. Ensure they have all the documents needed to undertake your enrolment. The instructions on the proxy enrolment document help explain this.
- Your proxy attends your scheduled enrolment session in person on your behalf.
- After enrolment, your proxy will give you details of the outstanding enrolment tasks that only you can finalise, such as obtaining your student card, or submitting a signed Commonwealth Assistance Form. You will need to finalise these as soon as possible.
Proxy enrolment is one of the University’s formal enrolment procedures.
It is essential that you (or your proxy) enrol at your scheduled enrolment session or you may risk missing out on the place you’ve been offered.
