Application and entry

Please find below details about how to apply to study at UniSA College.

Before you apply

Before you apply, make sure you meet the entry requirements for your preferred program/s.

How to apply

Applications to most programs at UniSA, including UniSA College programs, are administered through SATAC (South Australian Tertiary Admission Centre).

Applications open from early August each year for study in the following year. After applications open, you must submit an undergraduate application online via the SATAC website.

  1. Apply to UniSA through SATAC (selecting undergraduate admissions). Applications for study commencing the following year must be lodged by the end of September to avoid a late fee, but you can still apply until mid-December each year (late fees may apply). During the application process you will need to choose your program preferences. To do this you can search for the programs using the program’s SATAC code. You can choose up to 6 preferences on your application. If you are applying for a Bachelor program, you may like to consider UniSA College programs as lower preferences. Once you have submitted an application you can change your preferences until the Change of Preference deadline in early January. There may also be the opportunity for midyear entry. 

  2. Be aware of important dates for main round entry starting study at the beginning of the year and for midyear entry. Applicants who commence their studies at the beginning of the year are notified of their admission in January and February. For beginning of the year entry, we recommend you apply before the early closing date in September. You may still submit an application up until the equal consideration closing date, however a late fee may apply. If you are applying after the deadline, please call Future Student Enquiries for further advice.

  3. Accept your offer.
