Applying with SATAC: Why is my email address important?

Wednesday 14 October 2015

When you create a SATAC application, you will need to provide an email address during the registration process. Most of the correspondence you receive from SATAC will come to you by email. This includes acknowledgement of your application, important updates or reminders about SATAC processes, and offers.

For this reason, it’s important that you register with SATAC using an email address that is current, and one that you’ll have continuous access to throughout the application cycle (for some applicants that can be a whole year!).

Use an email address that belongs to you and check it regularly, so that you don’t miss important updates from us. Check in the spam or junk email folder too, just in case.

If you are a current year 12 student use an email address that is not your school email address. If you register with your school email address, you probably won’t have access to your emails by the time the main offer round comes around in January.

If you don’t have a personal email address, it’s easy to get one. Check with your internet service provider whether they provide an email address as part of your home internet service, or alternatively there are free email options on the web, such as Gmail or Hotmail, that are easy to set up.

Once you have registered with SATAC using your personal email address it’s also a good idea to add SATAC’s email address to the ‘whitelist’ on your spam filter. This will prevent emails from SATAC being sent to the spam folder. Your email client will have instructions on how to do this.
