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 (ie the highest preference for which you have met the admission criteria and selection rank requirement, if applicable).

Find out about how entry requirements determine who gets an offer.

Responding to offers

Respond to your offer by the date and time specified on your offer letter so that it does not expire.

To respond to your offer:

  • Log in to Application Services.
  • Select your response option (ie Accept, Reject, Defer – if deferment is an available choice) button.
  • Select the offer response again, and confirm your choose.

Response options

You have three response options:

  • Outright
  • Conditional, with no change of preference
  • Conditional, with change of preference

For each of the response options you can accept, reject or defer your offer (if deferment is available for your choosen course).

I’m happy and ready to enrol

  • Check with the institution for enrolment details and dates.

I no longer wish to study

  • By rejecting your offer outright, you notify QTAC that you no longer wish to study or be considered for any other preferences.

I’m happy and not ready to enrol yet

  • Rules for course deferral vary by institution. Please visit our deferment page on our website for institution policies.

I’d like to be considered for my higher preferences

  • By selecting a conditional response, you indicate that you would like to be considered for a higher preference.
  • If you elect to conditionally accepted or defer and receive an offer for a higher preference, you will lose the rights to your initial offer.
  • You cannot conditionally respond to your first preference. However, if you want to respond to your first preference offer conditionally, you need to respond then rearrange your preferences. The system will automatically change your offer to a conditional response.

Please note: You lose your right to an offer when you: 

  • receive a new offer for the same semester start
  • reject an offer
  • allow an offer to expire.

Find out if your expired offer can be reactivated.

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 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,  please contact us.

What next?

If you did not get an offer because you did not meet the entry requirements, there are other options to consider:

Got an offer, enrolled, but found the course is not for you

If not, you will need to change your preferences by logging in to Application Services.
