“I was studying the same degree at another university when the lecturer said that our worldview affects everything we do as counsellors. At that moment, I realised I needed to find a new place to learn that aligns with my worldview. After asking around, I found Alphacrucis and I have never looked back.”
HOW DOES IT WORK?
3 STEPS TO YOUR DREAM DEGREE
When completing your AC application form, submit a copy of your pre-2020 Year 11 grades and rankings, signed by your Year Coordinator or other school executive member.
AC will assess your application and assign an ATAR equivalent grade based on your Year 11 results.
You can then be admitted to any AC program for which your ATAR equivalent grade meets the entry requirements, and for which you would otherwise be eligible. AC will notify you of an admissions decision within 2 weeks of submitting a complete application.

EARLY OFFER FAQ
Who is eligible for Early Entry?
Australian students and international students undertaking Year 12 or equivalent (e.g. International Baccalaureate) in Australia are eligible.
How do I apply?
Alphacrucis College (AC) is a direct entry college, meaning you don’t submit your application through an admissions centre such as UAC. You can apply directly on our website.
Before you apply online, please prepare your supporting documents in an electronic format. If you don't have these ready, you can still start your application and add the supporting documents later.

The 2021 Early Offer program is open until November 2020. AC is offering 2 rounds of Early Entry this year – round 1 is until end of September 2020, round 2 is until end of November 2020. We encourage you to submit your application as soon as possible. Our Admissions team will notify you that we have received your application and contact you if we need further information.
What documents do I need to submit as part of my application?
If you are in Year 12, we will require your Year 11 grades and rankings, signed by your Year Coordinator or other school executive member.
In considering suitability, AC considers factors other than grades, so you have the opportunity to tell us more about yourself. You can also include any reference or recommendation letters.

1. Why are you applying to Alphacrucis College?
2. What is your motivation for choosing your course?
3. Tell us about your interests and/or achievements. This may include co-curricular activities, work experience or community involvement.

All applications will be notified of an outcome by round 1, 30 September 2020 and by round 2, 30 November 2020.
This year we are offering you the chance to receive a scholarship which recognises your achievements in academia or the community. Scholarships will be worth up to $5,000 each.* Applications are submitted through the Early Offer Application form.
