2018 EAP Welcome Events

The MER Student Recruitment Team have held Welcome Events in Brisbane, Melbourne and Ballarat to date for students who have been offered a place at ACU next year through the Early Achievers program. The Welcome Events have been well attended by students, family and friends and have been a chance for all to celebrate the students’ achievements.

Admissions presented a powerpoint presentation to explain how an EAP offer becomes a course offer, with detailed instructions on what each student needs to do to make that happen. These basic instructions were included in the EAP offer emails we sent at the end of August.

All EAP applications have been finalised and applicants notified. Any enquiries regarding EAP should be forwarded to eap.admin@acu.edu.au

Enrolment for 2018

Admissions have been issuing offers for 2018 since August 2, advising students that they will be given information about their offer response options in mid-October.

We will email these students again on October 9 when enrolment for 2018 is open, to tell them how they can accept, defer or decline their offer. The email will be sent to their personal email address.

Returning Students

With enrolment opening next week, Admissions have commenced review of all return from deferment requests received to date.

Currently we are reviewing over 300 requests and expect to have these processed by the end of next week i.e. 13 October.

Lapsing of 2017 Offers

Offers to commence in 2017 have been lapsed (withdrawn) for students who didn't accept their offer by enrolling in a unit in the 2017 Academic Year. These include UG and PG offers and most of these students were contacted by AskACU or Admissions at some stage, to encourage them to accept.

If you receive a contact from a student who wants to enrol for 2018 but whose offer has been lapsed, please ask them to email admissions@acu.edu.au to request reinstatement of their offer.; Depending on their course and campus, Admissions may be able to reactivate them without having to reapply due to their circumstances.

Transfer Requests

Over 500 requests to transfer course and/or campus have been received to date.

Admissions have commenced review of transfer requests with the aim or providing them with a provisional/conditional advice regarding their request by the end of the month (for those requests already received).

This is part of the new approach to transfer processing that Admissions trialled for midyear.  We aim to provide early advice to students regarding their transfer request to assist them with better planning their studies for 2018. Students who are expected to transfer will have the satisfaction of knowing this earlier and those who do not meet the requirements for transfer will have more time to discuss their options with Course Coordinators etc.

REMINDER – ADMISSIONS TEAM MEETINGS

Please note that Admissions will hold their next fortnightly team meeting from 10:30 to 11:00 am on Wednesday 11 October 2017.  Anyone trying to contact us during this time will need to leave a message and we will reply as soon as possible.
