How to add documents to your application

When you apply for a course you need to prove your claims. This shows you how to submit your documents so your application can be assessed.

Deakin often requests more documents than you provided in your original application so they can assess your application.  Without you supplying these documents you may be rejected after a period of time.  Hopefully this page will help you to get it right the first time or when you provide new documents.

How you applied to Deakin sets how you provide documents

Please choose the appropriate tab below.

  2. Log in to the Applicant Portal using your applicant ID – this is the number in the very first email you received from Deakin.  Please note this number is different to your Application number.  If you need to search for the email it will have come from enquire@deakin.edu.au
