*Note: ATAR information is published as a guide based on the most recent Semester 1 intake. Minimum selection rank can change from year to year. Meeting minimum ATAR requirements doesn’t guarantee your admission. Your success may depend on your academic record, experience and other factors compared with other applicants.

Frequently asked questions

What’s an adjustment factor?

Adjustment factors (previously bonus points) may be added to your raw aggregate score, resulting in the re-ranking of your ATAR. Adjustment factors are limited to twenty points. Examples are performance in certain subjects, equity and personal factors (SEAS) and La Trobe access schemes.

I didn’t get the ATAR required for my course. What now?

At La Trobe, selection ranks are not set in advance and change from year to year. That means they should be used as a guideline only.

If your result is slightly below the published ATAR, you may be eligible for additional consideration. If your ATAR is the minimum selection rank, we recommend you still place your most preferred course as your highest preference.

It’s also a good idea to consider placing pathway options in your lower preferences.

I didn’t get the ATAR required for the Aspire Program. Could I still receive an offer?

If you don’t get the required ATAR for your Aspire offer, it’s still possible to receive an offer for your course through the regular selection process. This is because the Aspire minimum ATAR requirements refer to ‘raw’ ATAR scores – before adjustment factors are applied.

How do I change my course preferences?

To change your preferences, you’ll need to log into your VTAC account with your VTAC ID and PIN number. Once logged in, you’ll be able to add, delete and/or re-order the courses in your preference list.

Change of preference is closed during each selection period (just before each offer round) but is open at all other times. For more information, check the VTAC dates and fees page.

Change of preference – we're here to help

Once you have your ATAR, you’re welcome to talk to our staff and students about your options. We'll help choose a pathway that’s right for you.
