Supplementary offers

What is a supplementary offer?

The supplementary offer process enables universities to directly offer applicants a place in programs for which they are eligible (ie. they meet all pre-requisites and ATAR requirements), but did not list the program in their VTAC preferences.

Am I eligible?

The supplementary offer process is available to all applicants who:

  • have not received an offer in any of the previous rounds (Early, Round 1, Round 2)
  • have given VTAC permission to release their application details to institutions for consideration

How do I know if I have received a supplementary offer?

You will be contacted by FedUni to confirm whether you would like to receive an offer.  If you agree to receive the offer, you will be advised of the formal offer via your VTAC Account as well as by email in the next offer round. FedUni will send you an official offer letter via email which will explain how to accept the offer.

If I have rejected my first supplementary offer, can I receive another?

Once you receive an offer, you are no longer eligible to receive another offer via the supplementary offer process. If you have received an offer and decide that you are interested in another program that we offer, for which you believe you may be eligible, please contact us directly on 1800 FED UNI (1800 333 864) or email

I have received a supplementary offer for study. What now?

Once you have indicated your intention to accept a supplementary offer, an official offer letter will be issued in the next offer round to the email address you provided in your VTAC Account. 

Can I defer my supplementary offer?

All new students who have not yet enrolled are eligible to submit an application to defer. Such applications are subject to approval. Further information regarding deferring your offer can be found at deferring your offer

If you have any further questions regarding the supplementary offer process,
please contact Admissions on or phone 1800 FED UNI (1800 333 864).
