Changing your mind after you apply
If you apply and then change your mind about what you want to study, don't submit a new application; simply change your preferences through Check & Change.
Remember to make sure the details of your studies and qualifications, including any courses you studied in semester 1, are up-to-date. We'll then be able to access your semester 1 results as soon as they're available. If an institution makes offers to the semester 2 course you want to do before your semester 1 results are available, then they'll use your previous qualifications (eg your ATAR) to assess your application. Check our table showing the first possible offer round in which semester 1 results from ACT and NSW institutions will be available to UAC.
If you're a non-Year 12 applicant and want to apply for advanced standing/credit for prior studies, you must do this directly with the institution after you receive an offer.
To cancel your application, write to or email UAC and include your UAC application number.
Note that UAC will not refund charges or fees paid to UAC under any circumstances, except as required by law.
