Creating a VTAC Account

For the most up-to-date information, be sure to visit


Before you can apply through VTAC, you need to create a VTAC account. The VTAC account is where you manage your applications for courses, SEAS and scholarships. You can also change your preferences and update your personal details through your VTAC account.

What is a VTAC account?

Before you can apply for courses, scholarships or special consideration (SEAS), you need to create a VTAC account.

Once you have a VTAC account you can:

  • apply for courses
  • apply for scholarships
  • change your personal details
  • change your PIN
  • access messages from VTAC
  • view your ATAR (current Victorian Year 12 only)

After you apply for courses, you can also:

  • view or change your course application
  • pay the fees associated with processing your application
  • apply for special consideration (SEAS)
  • complete and submit the VTAC Personal Statement
  • print documentation cover sheets 
  • view your offers

How to create an account

If you created an account between August 2018 and January 2019, you can access it using your existing user name and password for mid-year applications. You do not need to create a new account. Accounts will remain active until 19 July 2019.

To create a VTAC account, follow the steps below.

1. Click on ‘Create an account’

When applications are open, there will be a link to ‘create an account’ on the home page and a ‘Sign up’ link at the top of the VTAC site.

2. Enter your personal details

You will be asked to enter your full name, gender and date of birth. You will also be asked if you have undertaken secondary or tertiary studies under any other names, and to provide details of your previous names.For information about providing evidence for previous names, see Other evidence required.

If you are a current Year 12 student, make sure the details you use to register a VTAC account are the same details the school has recorded for you. Speak to your school if you need to make any changes.

3. Enter your citizenship and residency details

You will be asked if you are an Australian citizen, a New Zealand citizen, or if you hold or will be obtaining an Australian residency or study visa. You will also be asked which country you were born in and the main language you speak at home.

If you hold a visa you will be asked to enter the date it was granted and the sub class (the number or letter printed on the visa).

4. Indicate if you are currently studying a Year 12 program

You will be asked if you are currently studying the VCE (including VCAL), a standard interstate Australian Year 12, or the IB in Australia or New Zealand. If you answer ‘Yes’ to any category you will be asked which curriculum you are studying and your student number. Your response will determine how VTAC collects your Year 12 results and how much you will be charged for your processing fee.

 If you are a Year 12 student and have difficulty at this stage, check with your school to see if the details they have recorded for you are correct.

5. Enter your contact details

You will be asked to enter your mailing and residential address/es, how long you have lived at your residential address, your phone number/s (landline or mobile) and your email address.

If possible, you should include an Australian postal address where you can receive mail.  If you are an international student, you will also be required to supply your permanent international address.

VTAC recommends using a non-school-based email address as we continue to send information well into January and February 2019. Your school email address may no longer be in service by that time.

6. Choose a 4-digit PIN and two security questions

You will be asked to choose a 4-digit PIN to use when you log in to your account. You will also be asked to provide two security questions and their answers. Make sure these are questions you are happy for a member of the VTAC team to ask you and that the answers are not easy for someone you know to guess. Keep these questions secure and safe, as you will need them to apply, to access your information after you apply, and to discuss personal information with VTAC staff if you call us.

If you ever forget your VTAC ID or your PIN, you can fill in the online Request for VTAC ID and PIN and it will be sent to the email address you provided when you registered.

7. Review your details and complete your registration

You will be asked to review your details and confirm that they are correct. When you complete your registration you will receive a system-generated VTAC ID. You will need your VTAC ID and PIN to log in to your VTAC account. You will also receive an email containing your registration details.
