How we notify you of your offer

We notify you of your offer by email, and may also notify you by SMS.

You only get one offer each offer date. This is for your highest eligible preference.

If you did not get an offer

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.
