If you need to supply supporting documents to SATAC, you can upload them online to your application.
Your application will tell you if you need to provide documents.
You won't need to provide documents for some qualifications, such as Year 12 or Australian university study. For these qualifications, SATAC will get your results on your behalf.
What documents to include
If requested, your supporting documents should include:
- a copy of the parchment showing you completed the course (if applicable)
- an academic transcript showing results obtained for your studies
- the grading system used by your institution.
SATAC uses supporting documents to assess your qualifications. You should supply documents as soon as possible after submitting your application.
There may be delays in assessing your qualifications or receiving an offer if you do not supply the correct documents.
If you need to provide documents for current year studies, submit them as soon as they are available.
What SATAC can get on your behalf
SATAC can get some results on your behalf. In most cases, we won't ask you for supporting documents for:
- Australian Year 12 qualifications
- Studies completed at an Australian university
- TAFE SA studies if completed in the current year
- STAT results if you have entered the details of your STAT sitting on your SATAC application
SATAC will let you know if we are unable to get your results.
Your institution may not release results if you have an outstanding debt with them. If this is the case, contact your institution for advice. SATAC will not assess the qualification until the institution confirms your results.
Document details fact sheets
There are different types of documentation required for different qualifications. Your SATAC application will tell you which qualifications need supporting documents.
You can find further information about supporting documents in our Fact Sheets:
Undergraduate document details (432KB PDF)
Postgraduate document details (412KB PDF)
If you studied overseas and your supporting documents are in a language other than English, you must submit copies of:
- the original documents, and
- a full translation.
The translation must be completed by an independent, accredited translator. The translation must also show results for all the subjects you studied.
You can attach scans of your official transcripts and parchments to your application.
It is your responsibility to follow any requests by SATAC to provide further documentation, either in the original language or translated into English.
If you are sending documents in hard copy do not send irreplaceable originals. SATAC does not return documents, and we do not keep documents submitted in previous years.
Undergraduate and postgraduate applicants
You must supply certified copies of all documents submitted in hard copy.
SATAC staff can photocopy and sign original documents at our office. You can also take your originals plus a copy to a Justice of the Peace (or similar) for certification.
The person who certifies the copies must attest to having sighted the original documents.
TAFE SA applicants
TAFE SA applicants don't need to certify hard copies. You can submit photocopies of your supporting documents if you are unable to upload them to your application.
Some undergraduate courses at Flinders University and the University of Adelaide have a subquota of places for eligible students applying for rural or remote entry. If you are eligible, you must submit a statutory declaration to SATAC:
- within ten working days of submitting an application for a Flinders University course
- within five working days of submitting an application for a University of Adelaide program
You can download a copy of the statutory declaration form below.
You can also use this form if you are applying for courses at Charles Darwin University or Flinders University that offer NT subquota entry. Submit the form within ten working days after submitting your SATAC application.
Use course search to find more information in individual course entries.
