Aspire ATAR

Get more from your ATAR. If your Aspire application is successful, you’ll have access to an Aspire ATAR to secure your early conditional offer at La Trobe University.

What's an Aspire ATAR?

The Aspire ATAR is the score you need to lock in your offer. This may be a little different to the regular ATAR listed on the course page on the La Trobe website – it’s our way of encouraging you to reach higher than you thought you could.

It could be the one-point difference between your ATAR and getting into your course, so make sure you make the most of it and dream big.

You’ll find the indicative Aspire ATARs for 2023 below. Your conditional offer will be converted to a full offer if you meet the Aspire ATAR and your Aspire program requirements, as well as any prerequisites from the course you’re applying for.

Courses that are not listed below will be assigned a 50 Aspire ATAR.

Who is Aspire ATAR for?

You’ll get an Aspire ATAR if you’re applying for the following Aspire program(s):

  • Aspire Community Contribution
  • Aspire Advance
  • Aspire Achieve Plus

Need study help to get that ATAR?

Aspire Community Contribution students can benefit from hundreds of free VCE and HSC study guides from EdUnlimited as soon as you apply. Plus, sign up to Year 12 revision lectures in April, July and September.
