You must apply for your ACU course via your local tertiary admissions centre (TAC) or via the ACU Guarantee. Following this, you will need to gather your supporting documentation and submit an EAPP application form direct to ACU.
To get started, read our step-by-step application guide.
As well as applying for the EAPP directly to ACU, you’ll also be required to apply to your course via your relevant Tertiary Admissions Centre (TAC) or via the ACU Guarantee. Make sure you meet the course entry requirements and prerequisites to be offered a place in the course. To learn more about entry requirements and how to apply for an undergraduate course, visit Undergraduate students (How to apply)
Before applying for the EAPP, please ensure you have gathered the necessary supporting documentation:
a sport/performance resume summarising your achievements and experiences over the previous 12months.
a supporting reference letter from your relevant sport or performance organisation or association which verifies your level of elite involvement over the past 12 months and your ongoing commitments
current training/rehearsal schedule and expected competition /performing schedule for the upcoming year (if known)
relevant high-resolution competition or performance photo (action shot with face visible preferred).
Please note: Your supporting letter must be on an official organisational letterhead, have the appropriate contact details (email and contact number) of your referee (i.e. coach/manager/AW&E Manager etc) and explain your current involvement in your sport/performance. This letter is not a character reference, it should include factual details of your level within your sport/performance including any significant achievements. If your letter does not have these, your application will not be considered.
FUTURE STUDENTS (students who have applied to their Tertiary Admissions Centre but have not yet received an offer from AUC), please include your UAC/VTAC/QTAC application number on your application form to allow adjustment factors to be applied, if eligible.
If you have RECEIVED an offer from ACU and have a student number, or you are a CURRENT STUDENT, please include your student number on the application form as well as your ACU Student email (i.e. firstname.lastname@example.org).
Applications are open for Future students applying for entry in 2024 and we encourage applicants to submit their application form as soon as possible to allow any awarded EAPP adjustment factors to be given. Applications will continue be accepted past this time and adjustment factors applied to subsequent TAC application round.
Current student applications remain open year-round.
Current ACU students or students re-applying for the EAPP
If you are a current ACU student, you can apply for the EAPP at any time of the year. Applications are open to undergraduate, postgraduate and ACU Online students. While applications will remain open, some EAPP benefits may vary depending on the timing of receiving an application during the semester. I.e if applicants apply after the timetabling period, we cannot guarantee timetable preferencing.
EAPP members are required to re-apply to the program every 12 months, with application for 2024 closing on 27 October. This is to ensure timetabling preferences for 2024.
