How to upload documents

If you need to provide supporting documents, you will be prompted to do so in your application. The required documents will also be listed in your Confirmation of Application, which you can download when you complete your application.

Before you start

  • Once you’ve uploaded your documents, you can view them, but you can’t edit or delete them.
  • If you want to replace a document you have uploaded for a course preference, just upload the new document and make sure it is clearly marked with your full name, application number, course code and document type. You can't remove the original.
  • You can upload up to five documents for each qualification or course preference. If you want to provide more, contact the institution directly.
  • All course-specific documents must include your full name, UAC application number, course code and document type.
  • Your documents can’t be uploaded by referees or other third parties.


  • Log in to your application.
  • To upload course-specific documents, go to the course preferences section. Any required documents will be listed under 'Course-specific requirements'. Select 'Upload' and follow the prompts to upload your PDF file.
  • To upload documents related to your qualifications, go to the qualifications section. Select 'Upload' for each document you are required to upload and follow the prompts to upload your PDF file.
  • To upload documents related to citizenship, date of birth or a change of name, go to the personal documents section. Select a document type and follow the prompts to upload your PDF file.   

Document specifications

  • The name of your document must be 40 characters or less.
  • All documents must be PDF files. If your document isn’t a PDF file (eg photo, Word doc), you need to convert it. You can use UAC’s document conversion service – simply attach the document file to an email addressed to For each attached file you’ll receive an email back with a converted PDF file. Note that we can't receive emails exceeding 11 MB; if your attached documents are too big, you won't receive a response. There are also many document conversion packages available on the web.
  • Each PDF document must be smaller than 5 MB. If your PDF document file size is bigger than 5 MB, you’ll need to reduce it to upload your document. You may be able to do this by lowering the resolution of the PDF file and any images it contains.

Important note for Apple users: If you're using an Apple computer with an OSX version less than 10.8, do not use its built-in PDF software to prepare PDF documents. Documents created or saved using this software and uploaded will be not viewable.
