Get an early conditional offer

A conditional offer means you’ve been accepted into your chosen course at La Trobe, as long as you meet all course prerequisites and special requirements for your course. You’ll find out if you’ve been accepted into your course in September.

To receive an early conditional offer as a Year 12 Aspire applicant, you’ll need to:

  • meet the minimum ATAR  for your course
  • meet the standard prerequisites and any special requirements for your course
  • place your Aspire course as the highest eligible preference in the VTAC/UAC preference list (if in Year 12).

If you’ve already completed Year 12, Aspire offers the benefit of minimum entry requirements (ATAR or equivalent academic performance in further study).
