ACU admission pathways

Admission pathways

When you don’t meet the entry requirements, successful completion of an admission pathway can provide eligibility into your dream course. They include diplomas, certificates or vocational pathway courses, and can be completed through ACU or TAFE/Registered Training Organisations.

Entry programs

We value more than your entry rank or qualifications. That's why we offer a range of entry programs that will consider your personal circumstances and achievements when you apply to ACU, including our ACU Guarantee program which offers eligible Year 12 students a place based on Year 11 results.

Adjustment factors

Adjustment factors are designed to help you get into uni and reach your full potential. If you’re eligible, adjustment factors are applied to your ATAR to give you a revised entry rank, which can improve your chances of getting into your course. They can be based on subjects you studied, the school you went to, or if you live in a regional area, so they are worth checking out.
