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

Apply to UniSA through SATAC
Apply to UniSA through SATAC. 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.
