About VTAC

The Victorian Tertiary Admissions Centre (VTAC) is the central office that administers the application and offer process for places in tertiary courses at university, TAFE and independent tertiary colleges in Victoria (and a few outside Victoria).

VTAC receives and forwards application information and supporting documentation to the course selection authorities at institutions.

VTAC is not a selection authority, does not determine the selection criteria used by institutions and does not decide who will receive an offer. All decisions about which applicants are offered a place are made by the course selection authorities at institutions.

After selection decisions have been made by the course authorities at institutions, VTAC sends offer letters to successful applicants on the institutions’ behalf.

VTAC also:

  • calculates and issues the ATAR (previously known as the ENTER) for VCE students;
  • co-ordinates sittings for STAT and DULSAT admissions tests;
  • administers the application process for the Special Entry Access Scheme;
  • administers the application process for some institutional Scholarships;
  • provides telephone and online information and enquiry services for applicants;
  • publishes a range of guides to tertiary study;
  • conducts information sessions for secondary school students and their parents, careers teachers and adults returning to study.

VTAC is not a government body – it is funded by participating institutions and processing fees paid by applicants.

  1. Hi, I was wondering if you could please point me in the direction of the protocol around confidetiality (regarding SEAS & ATAR information) for Careers Practitioners?
    Thanks in advance.

    • Hi Christina,

      VTAC does not provide SEAS information to careers practitioners, so any SEAS-related information disclosed to you directly by a student would be governed by our own school’s protocols for confidential information.

      For information about ATAR privacy, please refer the Terms of Conditions of CourseLink and Confidential Data: http://vtac.edu.au/pdf/CourseLink_Terms_and_Conditions.pdf

      More information about ATAR protocols will be sent to schools shortly.
