accessACU – important changes to bonus scheme
Changes have been implemented to the accessACU bonus scheme:

  • The geographic bonus has been removed from the accessACU scheme with postcodes ACU wishes to target being included in existing schemes i.e. EAS via UAC and QTAC and SEAS via VTAC.
  • The maximum number of bonus points attainable under accessACU will be reduced to 5 bonus points.

All applicants to ACU will be eligible for the following bonus points (if applicable):

  • accessACU bonus points – subject bonuses
  • EAS/SEAS* bonus points – disadvantage bonuses
  • Step-Up into Teaching (SUIT) – if applicable
  • Disadvantaged Schools bonus points

Elite Athlete bonuses will be applied if the applicant receives an ATAR above 58.50 after the above bonuses have been applied. This decision is currently under review.

*Automatically applied via the Tertiary Admission Centres.
