Once you receive an offer, you can accept, reject or defer your offer, firmly or conditionally:
- Respond firmly if you do not want to be considered for other courses in any future offer round.
- Respond conditionally if you do want to be considered for other courses in a future offer round.
If you respond conditionally and receive another offer, you forfeit your original offer. If you do not receive another offer, you keep your original offer.
If you enrol in a course you conditionally accept, you may need to withdraw from this course through your university if you are made another offer; check with your university for details.

If you did not get an offer, it could be because:
- you did not meet the entry requirements
- you needed to compete for a place and your OP or selection rank did not meet the cut-off
- you did not pay your application fee
- you ordered your preferences incorrectly
- you applied after the due date, or too close to an offer round, and we could not assess your application in time.
If you are unsure why you did not get an offer, call us on 1300 467 822.
