If you have applied to study at TAFE SA in semester 1, 2017, please check your email on Friday, December 9, as offers to some courses will be released. If you do not receive an offer on Friday, please note that the main January offer round will take place on Monday, January 9, 2017.

What to expect if you receive an offer

SATAC will notify you of an offer on behalf of TAFE SA by emailing the offer to your last recorded email address. If you have changed your email address recently, or did not update it when you completed your application, you can update your email by logging in via My Application and making the relevant changes to your contact details.

Your responsibility

It is your responsibility to find out whether you have received an offer and to comply with the enrolment instructions from TAFE SA.

How to respond to an offer

If you receive an offer to a TAFE SA course you are not required to respond to the offer with SATAC. All you need to do is enrol in your course following the instructions sent to you by TAFE SA. Your enrolment in the course is confirmation of acceptance of your offer.

If you do not wish to accept the offer then simply don’t enrol with TAFE SA. This will not affect your chances in a future application.

Future offer rounds and key dates

A list of the key dates for 2017 TAFE SA applicants can be viewed on SATAC’s website. Here you will be able to view the dates of all upcoming offer rounds and the deadlines to change your preferences or sit the Core Skills Profile for Adults (CSPA) test in order to be eligible for future offers.


TAFE SA courses cannot be deferred through SATAC.

Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL)

Students are encouraged to seek recognition of their prior learning or existing skills to exempt them from repeating work unnecessarily. Information about RPL is available from the TAFE SA website.
