You must provide documentary proof of all qualifications and any change of name you've stated on your application. TISC can obtain some of this proof electronically, but not all of it. If you need to provide any documentation, your Application Coversheet will tell you. If TISC isn't successful in retrieving the results it expects to obtain for you, it will email you and ask you to provide the documentary proof yourself. Applications where information or documentation isn't complete may not be successful. It's your responsibility to submit all supporting documents, unless your Application Coversheet tells you otherwise. If you have to lodge documents, read the following carefully so that you comply with TISC's strict requirements for supporting documentation. Also make sure you comply with any closing dates. If you submit original documents, TISC will return them to you. TISC doesn't return certified copies. Documentation to support qualifications you've completed consists of both an academic transcript and proof of completion. Submit all documentation with a copy of your Application Coversheet, either by mail or in person, to Level 1, 100 Royal Street, East Perth 6004 (office hours 9.00am to 4.30pm weekdays).
You must provide originals or correctly certified copies of the original documents for all your supporting documentation (photocopies of the original certifications aren't acceptable). Photocopies, scans, online printouts and emailed documents aren't acceptable. Faxes or emailed transcripts/results will be accepted if they're sent directly to TISC by the institution concerned, but won't be accepted if you fax or email them to TISC yourself.
You can get your documents certified by the following institutions:
- The Tertiary Institutions Service Centre (TISC); or
- The Admissions Office or Student Administration at any Australian university; or
- The Tertiary Admission Centre in your State (for interstate applicants) - QTAC, SATAC, UAC, or VTAC. Cost: $6 fee plus $1 per page. This service isn't available on closing dates; or
- The Assessment Centre at any State Training Provider (TAFE) College; or
- The official Records Department of the institution that originally issued the documents. There may be a charge for this service.
- Write 'This is a true copy of the original document sighted by me'; and
- Sign this statement; and
- Print the following details
- Contact telephone number
- Profession or occupation or organisation
- Date certified; and
- Include the official stamp or seal of the certifier's organisation, if the organisation has such a stamp.
- Anyone who's able to witness statutory declarations under the Oaths, Affidavits and Statutory Declarations Act 2005 can certify your documents. See www.courts.dotag.wa.gov.au/w/witnessing_documents.aspx for a full list of professions and their formal descriptions.
An authorised officer at:
- The official Records Department of the institution that originally issued the document(s); or
- An Australian overseas diplomatic mission/Australian Educational Centre
It's your responsibility to provide all necessary documentation in an acceptable form attached to your Application Coversheet. If you're unsure which documents to provide, check with TISC. TISC won't accept copies of documents which have been certified by any source other than those listed above, nor will TISC accept documents that aren't in an acceptable form (see Academic transcripts, Proof of completion and Acceptable forms of documents).
TISC has destroyed documents submitted in a previous year to maintain confidentiality.
If you're studying in second semester 2016, apply to TISC by the closing date and forward all documents requested by your Application Coversheet, including results to date for the studies you are completing. Forward the documents for your second semester 2016 study with your Coversheet as soon as they're available. TISC and the universities can't guarantee that documents received at TISC after 5 January will be considered in the main round of offers. TISC can obtain second semester 2016 results from most Australian universities. TISC can also obtain second semester results for all WA TAFEs (as long as you apply to TISC by 30 November 2016). TISC can obtain 2016 results for secondary studies in each of the Australian states (HSC, NTCE, QSC, QCE, SACE, TCE, WACE/TEE/TAE, VCE). It can obtain 2016 International Baccalaureate results, 2004-2016 final year NCEA results and 2016 CIE results. CIE students must provide their Centre Number and Candidate Number. CIE students need to submit previous IGCSE or equivalent.
When you apply, you declare that your application is 'true and complete'. If your Coversheet tells you to, you must provide documentary proof of all previous Year 12 (or equivalent), and post-secondary studies, including failed courses or units. It's a serious offence to submit a false declaration or false documents. If you do, TISC will notify all participating universities, and your application may be withdrawn. Some universities have policies in place which will prevent you being offered a place in subsequent years. Past cases have also been referred to the police. If you're offered a place in a course and your application is subsequently found to have been incomplete or misleading, your enrolment can be terminated and your academic record annotated accordingly.
You must provide official transcripts (statements) of your academic record (either originals or correctly certified copies) which show:
- The name of the course studied; and
- All subjects you took; and
- Grades you obtained (including failures, withdrawals and incomplete studies); and
- An explanation of the grading system (if studied outside Western Australia).
If you've completed a course, you need to provide proof. If the academic transcript doesn't state that you've successfully completed the course, you'll need to provide extra documentation, such as a certificate, diploma, degree or official letter from the Records Department of the issuing institution confirming that you've completed the course.
If you attended an institution overseas, you must provide an official transcript of academic record, as well as proof of course completion if you completed the course, for all current and previous studies. Documents in a language other than English, as evidence of studies undertaken overseas, must be submitted with an original English translation transcribed and stamped by a NAATI (The National Accreditation Authority for Translators and Interpreters) accredited translator who is accredited at the Translator or Advanced Translator level. For rare languages, if no accredited translator is available, a stamped translation from a NAATI-recognised translator is acceptable. If you're submitting an application from overseas, the translation must be completed and stamped by a qualified government translator. You must provide:
- The original language transcript of studies showing the subjects and results; and
- The original language award certificate (if you've completed the qualification); and
- An original certified English translation of these documents.
You must satisfy the universities' English competence requirements. If you gained English qualifications outside Western Australia you may need to include documentary evidence of this (for example GCSE English, Academic IELTS, PTE Academic, TOEFL iBT, OET etc). TISC can access Australian Year 12 English results from 1977 onward. For more information about English competency requirements see individual university sections, Admission requirements for school leavers, and Admission requirements for mature age applicants.
Enter your name in full (be consistent with spelling used on the screen and in any other correspondence with TISC). Birth date
Enter your date of birth in the form of DD-MM-YYYY. For example 03-05-1974. Previous surname/family name
If your family name has changed, enter your previous surname/family name(s). If you have more than one previous surname/family name, enter all of them separated by a slash '/'. For example: SCOTT/LEE/WHITE. Have you changed your surname/family name since you gained any of your qualifications? If so, you must supply hard copy proof (eg marriage certificate or registration through deed poll). The document should show all names involved in the change (ie previous name/s and current name). Make sure that you advise all changes made. If not, TISC may not be able to access your previous academic record, and you may not be made an offer. Note that possession of two documents with different names, eg birth certificate and driver's licence, does not provide proof of name change. Gender
Select gender Male, Female or Indeterminate/Intersex/Unspecified. TISC recognises that individuals may choose to identify or be recognised within the community as having a gender other than the sex to which they were assigned at birth or during their childhood, or as having indeterminate sex or gender. Notification address
Give your notification address for the period July 2016 to February 2017. All postal correspondence will be sent to this address including:
- original documents returned by TISC
- requests for further information if required (if no valid email address is supplied)
The quickest and easiest way to change your address/email is online. Note the closing dates for changing your notification address/email prior to offers. WA Year 12 students should also separately ask their school to advise the School Curriculum and Standards Authority of their change of address. You may also change your address/email by telephoning or by sending a letter to TISC. You will need to advise your full name, TISC number (if known), your old contact details as well as your new contact details. Permanent home address
If your permanent home address is different from your notification address, enter the address. Do not use a post office box address. Some of the universities may use your permanent home address in assessing your eligibility for alternative entry pathways. This information is also required by the universities for reporting to Federal Government agencies for statistical purposes if your application is successful.
Click on the appropriate circle. If you click on 'None of these', you're classed as an international student and should apply direct to the universities for a full fee place. You don't apply through TISC. State the country in which you were born. Click on the down arrow next to the Country of Birth box to view the selection of countries available. If you were born in Australia, indicate this. If you weren't born in Australia, enter the day, month and year when your permanent residency was approved/granted. Also enter the day, month and year you first arrived in Australia. New Zealand citizens who don't have Australian Permanent Residency yet should enter their expected date of arrival in Australia. This information is required by the universities for reporting to Federal Government agencies for statistical purposes if your application is successful.

This question is asked because a number of universities have special admission schemes for applicants of Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander origin. The information is also used for statistical purposes. Answering this question is optional, but not answering may jeopardise your chance of being offered an alternative entry pathway available partly on the basis of this information.
The Australian Government Department of Education requires this information to be collected for statistical purposes. It won't be used by TISC or the universities in the assessment of your application for admission. Answering this question is optional. Please answer about the people (up to two) who, during all (or most) of your school years, were your parents or guardians. If you have more than two, answer about those you've spent the most time with. Answering these questions is optional, but not answering may jeopardise your chance of being offered an alternative entry pathway available partly on the basis of this information.

Before you enter your course preferences, read Choosing preferences. Use Course Search to check course codes for each university and methods of study available for each course. Make sure you're aware of any course prerequisites. Refer to the entry of the course in Course Search or Course Prerequisites. Course codes
You can't repeat course codes, even where the same code covers different courses, or different methods of study (full-time or part-time or external). For example, at UWA, UWART is the code for Arts, but within Arts, you could study Anthropology and Sociology, History of Art, etc. If you're offered and accept a place in UWART, at enrolment you'd then choose the course major within that code that you want to study. You can include up to six courses in order of preference. Make sure that your first choice is the course you'd most want to study if you're made an offer for 2017. Check your preferences carefully to make sure you've applied for what you want. A wrong choice may mean that you will be considered for a course you don't wish to study. Method of study
You will be able to enter only one method of study code for each preference:
- Full-time studies (F)
If you choose 'full-time' as your method of study, you'll study a full-time load of units and enrol for classes on campus for whenever the unit is timetabled. This may be in the daytime or the evening. Some units may be offered in more than one time-slot.
- Part-time studies (P)
You can study many courses part-time. Part-time means undertaking a lesser load of study than the normal full-time load. If you're a part-time student, you'll study a part-time load of units at the campus. You'll enrol for classes on campus whenever the unit is timetabled. This may be in the daytime or evening. Some units may be offered in more than one time slot.
- External studies (E)
If you're an external (off-campus) student, you won't normally attend classes on campus. Course materials will be mailed to you or made available via the Internet. Some courses may be offered externally in full or in part. External study is available for some courses at Curtin University, Edith Cowan University and Murdoch University. External study isn't available at The University of Western Australia.
Some Curtin courses are delivered either partially or fully 'online'. If you're an external student, you won't attend classes on campus. Course materials are available online and you'll learn using a wide variety of sources that can include interactive videos and animations, simulations, online workgroups, etc. You're required to have internet access for Online Studies. Online studies courses are indicated on the individual course entries available via the Course Search. Note: for some courses there is no choice. If the database does not accept a particular mode of study for one of your preferences, it may be that this course is not available in that mode. UMAT identification number
If you've applied for Medicine at Curtin University, Direct Pathway Medicine and/or Dentistry at The University of Western Australia, you'll need to supply your Undergraduate Medicine and Health Sciences Admission Test (UMAT) identification number. This number is stated on both the written acknowledgement of receipt of your UMAT application form and your Notification of the UMAT test date. Both these documents were sent to you by UMAT Pty Ltd. Include your UMAT candidate number on your application. See also:

The University of Western Australia
- Full-time studies (F)
Western Australian secondary studies
If you've sat WACE, TEE, TAE or Leaving examinations from 1976 onwards, TISC can access your results. There is no need to submit supporting documents. If you sat the Leaving examinations prior to 1976 you must submit your Year 12 certificates, including statements of marks and grades in all subjects, and your matriculation aggregate, see Supporting documents. Enter all relevant details of the study attempt; only asterisked items are compulsory. Make sure that you enter the year and full name under which you sat the examination, so TISC can find your results. Interstate secondary studies
If you're sitting interstate Year 12 examinations in 2016, provide your correct Year 12 candidate number so that TISC can obtain your results direct from the relevant interstate authority. 2016 QCE students should provide their LUI. Note that while every effort is made to consider interstate Year 12 results in time for main round offers, universities can't be held responsible if delays occur. If you've sat interstate Year 12 examinations between 1977 and 2015, TISC has access to your results, so there's no need to submit documents. Please record accurately the year you sat and provide your correct Year 12 candidate number where possible. 2010-2015 QCE students should provide their LUI. If you have interstate Year 12 results prior to 1977 you must submit your Year 12 certificates including statements of marks and grades in all subjects and matriculation aggregate or Tertiary Entrance Scores. See Supporting documents. Results for Australian year 12 studies sat overseas
TISC can retrieve results for ACT Year 12, NSW HSC, SA SAM, VIC VCE, WA WACE, etc sat overseas, but you need to let us know that your qualification is Australian, and isn't an overseas qualification despite being sat overseas. When you answer the question on secondary studies at Year 12 level outside WA, put 'ACT', 'NSW', 'SA', 'VIC', etc, as appropriate, not 'OS' (overseas) in the 'location' field, and put 'ACT Year 12', 'NSW HSC', 'SA SAM', 'VIC VCE', as appropriate, in the 'description' field so that TISC can identify your results as Australian and retrieve them without delay. If you're sitting/have sat WACE overseas, enter the details in the question relating to current/previous Year 12 studies in Western Australia. International Baccalaureate
If you're sitting or have previously sat the International Baccalaureate select 'International Baccalaureate' from the drop-down list as the location of your Year 12 study, not an Australian state or 'Overseas'. If you're sitting the IB in 2016, arrange through your school for your results to be forwarded direct to TISC. See your IB Co-ordinator in your school to ensure a Results Request has been submitted via IBIS on your behalf. Specify your IB personal code in your application to TISC. If you have sat the IB prior to 2016, you must submit your results to TISC with a copy of your Application Coversheet.
If you have an overseas qualification you must submit this with your application. Overseas qualifications must be supported by documents (certificates) plus a certified translation if the results are not in English. Result slip notifications which are not final certificates are not acceptable. Refer to Supporting Documents, especially Academic transcripts and Overseas documents. If you have 'A' level results (or equivalent), you must submit both your 'A' level final certificates and your GCSE ('O' level) and AS Level (if any) final certificates (or equivalent). Result slips alone are not acceptable. If you're currently studying 'A' levels, submit your GCSE and AS Level (if any) final certificates and your predicted A Level results at the time you apply and then forward your final results as soon as they're available. If you're studying the New Zealand NCEA Level 3 in 2016 or you completed it in 2004-2015 please provide your student number (NSN). TISC will be able to obtain your final results from the New Zealand Qualifications Authority (NZQA). If you studied at Level 3 over more than one year, you must state all years or TISC will not be able to obtain all Level 3 study from NZQA. The NZQA will also provide TISC with an equivalent ATAR. If you have sat New Zealand University Entrance, Bursaries and Scholarships Examinations prior to 2004, you must submit your results, including marks obtained. If you're sitting/have sat Cambridge International Examinations AS or A Levels in 2016, and you provide details of your Centre Number and Candidate Number, TISC expects to be able to obtain your final results electronically from CIE (2016 results only). If you've sat CIE prior to 2016, you must submit all your results (A Levels, AS and GCSE/IGCSE are required). If you're a New Zealand student who sat CIE IGCSEs prior to your current A Levels, you must submit your IGCSE results to TISC. If you completed NCEA Level 2 prior to your A Levels, add this to your application together with the year and your NSN, and TISC will retrieve these results for you. If you're a CIE student from another country, you need to provide your previous IGCSE or equivalent results.
Vocational Educational and Training (VET) studies at TAFE or Private Provider
Never been enrolled in any of the courses below? Click on the No circle, then click on Next Page to view Tertiary studies. Are you currently enrolled and/or have you ever been enrolled in any Certificate, Diploma, Associate Diploma, Advanced Diploma or Associate Degree level course at a TAFE/Private Provider college? If so, click on the Yes circle, then provide full details of all award courses attempted. Leisure, hobby, recreation or personal enrichment courses information is not required. Student number
This is essential information if you're currently enrolled at a Western Australian TAFE college (ie in second semester 2016), so that TISC can obtain your results direct from your College. Documents
Provide official statements of attainment or statement of academic record or record of results, and proof of course completion (if applicable) for any VET course you are or have been enrolled in at Certificate IV or higher level. Proof of completion may be a certificate, diploma etc or an official letter from the Records Department of the College. TISC can obtain second semester 2016 results for all WA TAFEs (as long as you apply to TISC by 30 November 2016). WA TAFE colleges will only provide proof of course completion to TISC if you've applied to graduate. You must apply to your WA TAFE for your award by the end of October 2016 if you expect to complete your qualification at the end of 2016. If you don't do this, it may affect your application, as the universities require proof of course completion when assessing your qualifications. Note that, if you are currently studying at a WA private Training Provider institution, you will need to provide all results to TISC, as TISC is unable to obtain them on your behalf. Tertiary studies
Never been enrolled in any of the courses below? Click on the No circle, then click on Next Page. Have you ever been enrolled in any Certificate, Diploma or Associate Diploma, Associate Degree, Bachelor's Degree or Postgraduate course at a university, college of advanced education (such as WACAE), Teachers' College, Institute of Technology (such as WAIT), Institute of Advanced Education or Institute of Tertiary Education? If so, click on the Yes circle and complete the boxes shown below to provide information on all courses attempted and/or completed (even if you withdrew prior to the start of the academic year). Failure to disclose full details of past enrolments could result in no offer being made, or an offer being withdrawn.
If you've previously been enrolled at a Western Australian university contact the Admissions Centre of the university concerned before applying through TISC for the same university. See Who should apply through TISC?
Have you any postsecondary and/or professional qualifications not covered in the questions on VET (TAFE) Studies and Tertiary Studies, eg pilot's licence, Police Academy certification, Australian Securities Institute studies? If so, enter these there. Enter the year each was obtained, the location and full details of the qualification/course. Leisure, hobby, personal enrichment and recreational courses information is not required. Registered nurses
Proof of current registration with an Australian State Nurses' Board is required if you're applying for one of the conversion courses for qualified/registered nurses at Curtin University or Edith Cowan University. Current registration may also satisfy minimum entry requirements for other courses.
Note: This is not the Scaling Test (Australian Scholastic Aptitude Test, ASAT, or Australian Scaling Test, AST) previously sat as part of the TEE. Click on the Yes circle if you intend to sit the STAT in 2016 or have previously sat the STAT or its predecessor, the Western Australia Alternative Test for Adult Admission (ATAA). Give details of any other adult admission test or tertiary preparation course under the question asking about other postsecondary and professional studies. You must disclosed all attempts at STAT, but results may not be sufficient to gain university admission. If you've sat the test since June 1996 give the location of the state where you sat the test. For tests prior to July 1996, advise the state whose STAT you sat (this is probably, but may not necessarily be, the same as the state where you sat the test). If you wish to sit STAT in another state to qualify for admission in WA, contact the Tertiary Admissions Centre in that state. Results will be made available to TISC once you have applied. Note that, if you are intending to sit STAT in another state (and your admission to a university in WA will be solely based on your STAT results), you must also sit the Written English section. Your Application Coversheet won't ask you to submit documents if you've sat the Western Australian STAT or ATAA in any year or if you are sitting/have sat the test from July 1996 anywhere in Australia. TISC has direct access to these results. If TISC is unable to obtain your results TISC will contact you and ask you to submit them yourself. If you sat the test outside WA before July 1996 you'll need to submit your results to TISC. Results from the Northern Territory prior to 2002, other Australian states prior to July 1996 and from overseas should be submitted with your Application Coversheet.
