Reminder: Change of preference deadline approaching

Friday 23 December 2016

The change of preference deadline for TAFE SA and undergraduate applications is quickly approaching.
If you decide to change your preferences before the main January offer rounds, the deadline to do so is Wednesday 28 December for TAFE SA applications, and Tuesday 3 January 2017 for undergraduate applications.

For TAFE SA applications

You can list up to three preferences in your SATAC application. You can change your preferences by logging in via My Application. A change of preference includes both changes to the order of existing preferences and the addition of new preferences to an application.

Please note that when you have reached the maximum number of offers in your TAFE SA application you will not be able to make any further changes to your preferences, or receive any more offers.

If you add a course with admission requirements for the first time you will be asked to provide additional information about your qualifications. You can find information on selection for courses with Course Admission Requirements (CAR) in our Entry requirements page in Clarify.

If you are unable to change your preferences online you can advise SATAC of the changes in writing and we will amend them for you, however SATAC staff will not accept a change of preference over the telephone.

Important points to remember:

  • You can list up to three preferences in your SATAC application
  • If you add a course with specific admission requirements you will be asked to provide additional information about your qualifications. Please check the Entry requirements page in Clarify for more information
  • The main January offer round for TAFE SA courses is Monday 9 January 2017
  • Offers will be emailed by 5pm on offer round dates
  • For a full list of offer round dates, please check the Key dates page for TAFE SA

For Undergraduate applications

You can list up to six preferences in your SATAC application. Remember a lower preference is not a lesser preference. List the course you are most interested in as preference 1, and then so on down the list.

A change of preference includes both changes to the order of existing preferences and the addition of new preferences to an application.

You can check or change your preferences online via My Application

Important points to remember:

  • If you applied for an undergraduate course by December 5, Tuesday 3 January 2017 is also the deadline to pay application fees and still be guaranteed equal consideration.
  • The main January offer round for undergraduate courses is Tuesday 17 January 2017
  • Offers will be emailed by 5pm on offer round dates
