ATAR Verification Service
QTAC’s new ATAR Verification service is designed to assist students, educational institutions and employers in assuring the validity of the ATAR results shared by a student when applying for courses, scholarships and jobs.
The service will be particularly useful for those students applying to institutions overseas, interstate and through direct application (i.e. not through an Australian tertiary admissions centre).
Order a printed certificate as a tangible reminder of your academic success.
The ATAR Verification Service offers two options
Please note: Students who have put in an application with QTAC do NOT need to apply for the Electronic Verification service. QTAC applicants give consent in their application for QTAC to make their ATAR available to the relevant QTAC institutions.
Interstate applicants: Students applying to interstate TACs do not need to apply for ATAR Verification if they have an ATAR account. Students with an ATAR account give consent for QTAC to share their ATAR results with interstate TACs.
Please make sure the information you enter is accurate and correct, especially the contact details of the three nominated entities for the Electronic Verification service. QTAC takes no responsibility for institutions not receiving ATAR results due to incorrect information supplied.
QTAC will endeavour to complete Verification service requests within ten days from receipt (not including time allowances for postal delivery).
For further assistance please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
How to access the Verification Service
To access the ATAR Verification Service use the online request form. Complete the form with all the required details and make payment via credit card.
When a student applies to an overseas university, some universities may request that the applicant’s ATAR certificate be ‘legalised’ by issuing it with an Apostille or an Authentication certificate before it will be accepted by that university. The legalisation process verifies that the signature, stamp or seal on the document is genuine.
The legalisation of documents, including documents for use overseas, is part of the notarial services offered by the Australian Government both within Australia and by the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT) consulate officials in overseas countries. For further information about Australian Government notarial services, please refer to the Australian government website, Smartraveller.
If you are applying to an overseas institution and need any further assistance with Authentication and Apostilling services relating to the Queensland ATAR certificate* please contact us at QTAC.
*ATAR certificates for students who completed their year 12 education and attained an ATAR under the Queensland QCE system from 2020 onwards.
