STAR Early Offer allows Year 12 students to secure their place in a Southern Cross University degree before Year 12 results are released. It is designed to remove some of the pressure from Year 12 and give you a direct pathway into university study that is not based solely on your ATAR or Year 12 results (ATAR and non-ATAR students eligible to apply). To apply, visit

Applications to universities through UAC

A UAC pin number has been emailed to all Year 12 students. You do not need this pin unless you intend applying for university study in 2022 through UAC.
You will not need the pin number for the STAR early entry for SCU.
