2018 CAP

The ACU Website and all supporting materials/advice has been updated to reflect the new branding for EAP to the Community Achiever Program (CAP). All 2018 applications have been finalised and applicants notified. Any enquiries regarding CAP should be forwarded to cap.admin@acu.edu.au.

Semester 1 - Late Applications

Requests for late applications must be sent to Admissions with the email approval of the relevant Head of School.

This approval may be sought by the Course Coordinator and include:

  • the name of the applicant
  • the course and campus they are applying for
  • the applicant’s email address

A personalised ADM form will then be generated by Admissions and forwarded to the applicant for completion.

The ADM form and any supporting documentation must be returned to Admissions as soon as possible to allow the offer to be made and the student to enrol etc.

Semester 1 - Returning Students - CD Forms Closing

Admissions have processed over 940 requests from students to return from deferment and commence their studies in Semester 1, 2018.

Return from deferment requests (CD Forms) will continue to be processed as they are received BUT returning students should be advised that classes commence 26 February and timetabling/allocations may not be ideal.

Semester 1 - Transfer Processing

Over 1,400 requests to transfer course and/or campus have been received to date.

Admissions are finalising all outstanding transfer applications this week. Students wishing to request a late transfer should be advised that as classes commence 26 February, it may be better for them to transfer next semester.

Transfer applications for Semester 2, 2018 open in Student Connect on 4 April 2018.

REMINDER - ADMISSIONS TEAM MEETINGS

Please note that Admissions will hold their next fortnightly team meeting from 10:30 to 11:00 am on Wednesday 28 February 2018. Anyone trying to contact us during this time will need to leave a message and we will reply as soon as possible.
