To start a university application

  • Make sure you have gone through the Registration Status Check (step 2 in previous section), so that you know your 8-digit User ID and password to log in.
  • Once logged in, follow step by step instructions on the Welcome page. You may also access various application sections directly from left hand menu under Application Enter/Update.
  • As you work through the pages of the application, you will be asked several questions. The questions denoted by the asterisk (*) must be answered, while any other questions are optional.
  • You may log out at any stage during the application and return at a later date. Your application is not active until you have declared and made payment.
  • Please note we suggest you use the Next Page, Previous Page buttons incorporated into the pages of our site. This will automatically save the changes you make on the current page. These buttons, where provided, will appear towards the end of the page. Using Back and Forward buttons on your browser toolbar may result in loss of unsaved information on the current page.
  • Please remember that there are closing dates in applying to university. Our calendar will advise you of the dates. These dates are absolute.

Lodgement of application

  • Your application is considered for admission only after you have paid the application fee. When you declare, your application is locked, awaiting fee payment to TISC. There are time limits related to the acceptance of payments. Your coversheet will advise you of the deadline.
  • Make sure you read your coversheet. Your coversheet will advise you of the documentation that is to be submitted by you in support of your application.
  • Once the payment has been processed you will be able to amend your preferences and change your contact details. Any other information cannot be changed. If you find that you have forgotten to add something or made an error, you will have to submit the changes in writing to TISC. Click here for the Applications Changes Form.
  • Be aware that TISC is under no obligation to accept payment of applications if received after the required date. Applications that have not been paid are considered invalid and will not be included in university offers.

Deferred student

If you deferred your studies to commence in February 2016, please note the following.

If your deferred place is from Curtin University, Curtin will contact you regarding your deferred place. Apply through TISC for courses other than your deferred course.

If your deferred place is from Edith Cowan University, ECU will contact you regarding your deferred place. Apply through TISC if you want your deferred place and also to be considered for other courses. Please submit a copy of the deferral letter from ECU along with any supporting documentation.

If your deferred place is from Murdoch University, apply direct to Murdoch for your deferred place and other Murdoch courses. Apply through TISC for courses at other universities.

If your deferred place is from The University of Western Australia, apply direct to UWA for your deferred place only. Apply through TISC if you want your deferred place and to be considered for other courses. Please submit a copy of the deferral letter which the university would have sent you this year.

If you need to apply through TISC for courses other than your deferred place, you will need to provide any supporting academic documentation with your application. TISC does not retain supporting documentation from one admissions year to another.

You can put your deferred course anywhere in your list of preferences. If it is not possible to offer you a higher preference, your deferred course will be re-offered to you. You will not be offered any course that you place lower than your deferred course. Should you require further details on how the preference system works, please refer to Offers of admission.

You are still guaranteed your deferred course as long as you apply for the deferred course before the closing dates.
