Undergraduate admissions requirements


USC makes admission offers for undergraduate programs to applicants who are judged to have a reasonable expectation of success in the program to which they are made an offer, in accordance with the Admissions, Enrolment and Graduation – Academic Policy.

To be eligible for admission to an undergraduate program at the University of the Sunshine Coast, an applicant needs to:

  • be eligible for an OP or Selection Rank equal to or above the cut-off level in the offer round, through completion of a recognised formal or non-formal qualification, including:
    • secondary study
    • TAFE/vocational studies
    • tertiary studies
    • bridging/preparatory study
    • alternative entry qualifications (eg professional qualifications, employment experience, Personal Competencies Assessment, Special Tertiary Admissions Test).
    • refer to entry pathways for more information
  • have satisfied any subject prerequisites as specified in the 'Why study this program?' tab on your preferred program page. Refer to satisfying subject prerequisites for more information. Recommended prior study is not a prerequisite subject, but a recommendation as to what knowledge students should possess in the subject area.
  • have satisfied the English Language Proficiency requirements. If English is not your first language, you need to meet the minimum English language requirements for your chosen program.

Once a completed application is submitted, a student is eligible for admission when they receive an offer to an undergraduate program.
