When you submit your application for the Community Achiever Program (CAP), we email your referee/s to ask them to verify your community experience statement. When your referee/s respond, we consider your statement/s against these criteria:
How you were involved
How often you were involved
How long you were involved
Comments from your referee
ALL applications will be assessed against these criteria. For some courses we only offer a limited number of CAP places. These include our most competitively sought degrees in Paramedicine, Physiotherapy, Occupational Therapy, and Speech Pathology.
You'll receive an email in late August to the address you provide in your CAP application. Your CAP early offer will convert to a course offer when you:
For most courses, any ATAR/OP adjustments you receive will be added to your raw ATAR/OP when considering the CAP minimum entry score requirement.
For all Initial Teacher Education courses in Victoria applicants must meet a raw ATAR 65.00. Adjustment factors will not be added when being considered for the CAP minimum entry score.
|All Initial Teacher Education - Vic||65.00 *Raw||TBC|
|Law and dual Law degrees||70.00||12|
|Paramedicine* - NSW||65.00||14|
|Paramedicine* - Qld, Vic||58.50||17|
|ALL OTHER degrees||58.50||17|
* Limited CAP places available
You'll receive an email in late August to tell you why your application was unsuccessful.
Don't lose heart. Remember that CAP is an early offer scheme and you may still receive an offer of a place in the course you want at ACU. If you leave it as a preference on your QTAC, UAC or VTAC application, you'll be considered for an offer in December/January.
To receive a later offer you will need to achieve the required entry score (ATAR/OP or equivalent rank) and satisfy any prerequisite requirements for your preferred course.
