When should I expect to receive an outcome for my application?
For direct applications, once you submit your application your status will change to “Under assessment”. Provided you have submitted all the required documentation, you can expect an outcome within 1 – 4 weeks unless your program requires ranking (competitive assessment). In this case, you will be notified by email of when you will receive an outcome. Application outcome delays may also occur if your program requires an interview/folio presentation, or Selection Task assessment.
During the assessment process, if a Selection Officer requires further information from you, a request email will be sent to your registered email address and a notification will be visible on My Dashboard.
For VTAC applications, offers are released on specific dates. More information on these dates can be located on the VTAC website.
How do I accept/withdraw/defer an offer?
If your direct application is successful, you will be emailed the details of your offer.
Log in to view the details of your offer via My dashboard.
Once you have received an offer, you will be given three options.
Accept your offer – if you accept your offer you will be sent details on how to enrol. All other preferences and offers will be withdrawn.
Decline your offer – if you decline your offer it will be withdrawn. If you have other preferences they will continue to be assessed.
Wait for the outcome of other preferences – you can track the progress of your application via My dashboard.
Defer your offer – To defer your offer, simply accept your offer and await your enrolment instructions sent via email (this can take up to 48 hours to receive). This email will include your student number, which you will need in order to defer. It is important that you do not enrol at this time if you are deferring an offer. Further information can be found here about RMIT's deferral process.
