Deakin Assured Offer Program

PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

For Year 12s, it can be an anxious wait between getting your ATAR and getting into your chosen course. The Deakin Assured Offer Program (DAOP) can take that worry away – it provides eligible Year 12 students with the opportunity of receiving a conditional offer of a place in one of the participating Deakin courses.

In addition to applying through VTAC, just complete a simple online registration form to apply for the program. Eligible applicants will receive a conditional offer before the VTAC Change of Preference period. If you get the required ATAR and meet the course prerequisites, Deakin guarantees that it will generate a VTAC offer of a place in that course for you.

Registrations for this program are now closed.

What can I expect if I register for the DAOP?

If you are eligible, then you can expect to receive an early conditional offer for one or more of your selected DAOP courses in November 2014.

You can also expect that Deakin University will keep you up to date with any developments in the course or courses in which you're interested. You may receive additional information about that course/s and you may be invited to events specifically for students interested in that field.

Is the Deakin Assured Offer Program open to all VTAC applicants?

To be eligible for the DAOP you must be a current Australian year 12 student.

Do I apply to VTAC or directly to Deakin University?

You need to do both. First, complete your timely VTAC application and make a note of your VTAC application ID. Then go to www.deakin.edu.au/assured and complete the short registration form (you'll need to provide your VTAC applicant ID). VTAC applications open on 4 August 2014 and DAOP registrations open on the same date. DAOP registrations close on 29 October 2014.

If I change my mind, can I withdraw from the Deakin Assured Offer Program?

Yes, just contact dsa-admissions@deakin.edu.au and you can withdraw from the Program.

What if I’ve registered for the DAOP but want to change the courses for which I have registered?

Yes, just contact dsa-admissions@deakin.edu.au and you can change the details of your registration.

Do I need to meet any selection criteria for the Deakin Assured Offer Program?

After you register for the program, Deakin will check that you are a current Australian Year 12 student.

  • If you are not, the University will contact you directly to advise that you are not eligible for the DAOP but this has no effect on your VTAC application.
  • If you are eligible, the University will contact you directly and make you a conditional offer. The conditions are a) that you achieve the specified ATAR b) that you meet any course prerequisites and c) that you include the DAOP courses that you have selected in your VTAC preferences. If you meet these conditions, the University guarantees that it will generate an offer for you during the main VTAC offer round in January.

If I get a conditional offer for a DAOP course, and then get the specified ATAR, is there any reason that I would not receive an offer of a place in that course from Deakin during the main VTAC offer round?

A number of courses at different institutions may be prepared to make you an offer, but the offer received will be for the course highest on your list of preferences where you have met all selection criteria including extra requirements.

When do I get my assured offer?

Eligible registrants will receive an early conditional offer from Deakin University in November 2014.

How do I accept my early conditional offer?

You do not need to formally accept this early conditional offer but you do need to accept the formal offer that you receive through VTAC in January.

What if I don’t get the specified ATAR?

You may still be offered a place in your preferred courses through the standard VTAC selection and offer process but Deakin University cannot guarantee this.

How many DAOP courses can I register for?

You can register for up to 12 DAOP courses in a single registration.

How many times can I register?

You can only register once but you can include up to 12 DAOP courses in a single registration.

Do I need references or a recommendation from my school?

No, the registration process is very straightforward and only requires enough information for you to register your interest in the program and for the University to check that you are an eligible applicant.

If I get an early conditional offer through DAOP, does that mean I won’t receive any other offers through VTAC?

Your VTAC application is not impacted by the DAOP at all. The offer that you receive through VTAC will depend on your preferences and the institutional/course prerequisites.

If I have an early conditional offer, do I need to do anything during Change of Preference?

No, but keep in mind that when you receive an offer of a place it will be for the course listed at the highest preference that you are eligible for.

How does DAOP impact on my SEAS application?

DAOP will not impact on your SEAS application. Only your ATAR and course prerequisites will be taken into account in the DAOP.

Can I receive more than one early conditional offer?

You can register for up to 12 DAOP courses and you may receive an early conditional offer for each course for which you register. However, you can only receive one formal offer through VTAC in the main offer round in January. Which course you are offered will depend on the order of your VTAC preferences.

Can I defer my DAOP offer?

Your DAOP offer/s apply only for commencement in Trimester 1, 2015. You will receive one formal offer in the main VTAC offer round in January. Deakin University allows you to defer that offer for up to two years. The conditional offer that you receive through the DAOP expires at the close of the main VTAC offer round in 2015.
