Remember: Students MUST pay the VTAC Application Fee ($35.00) before VTAC will forward your application to a tertiary institution.  We recommend you pay as soon as you complete your application.  Final Closing Date to pay VTAC is 28 September 2017. Failure to pay the VTAC Application Fee will negate your application and Selection Officers will not be able to consider you for a course.

Once your VTAC Application is made you are able to concentrate on your final assessments and revisit (change) your VTAC course preferences once the exams are completed and you know your results (12 December).

Students should receive your ATAR Score and individual study scores on Friday 15 December and will have until Wednesday 20 December to Change  VTAC Preferences if you wish.
