HOW TO APPLY
The steps below guide you through how to apply for study at Alphacrucis College (AC). Individual support is available for any questions you might have about your application or enrolment.
What is a certified document?
A certified (notarized) document is a copy of an original document, such as a birth certificate, academic transcript or proof of identity, that has been authorised (or stamped) as being a true copy of an original.
In order to process any
admission applications, our Application Officers will need to receive a certified copy of your identification
documents (e.g. passport/birth certificate) and any academic documents (e.g.
transcript). If you have completed previous study at AC, you are not required to certify your academic documents.
Who can certify my documents?
There is a wide range of authorised occupations and office holders who may certify a
document both within and outside of Australia. These include Accountants, Bank
Managers, Barristers, Ministers/Clergymen, Police Officers or School Principals.
To obtain certified copies of your documents, you will need to take both an original and a photocopied version of the document to an appropriate authorised person. They will certify that the photocopy is a true copy of the original. The certification should include a statement such as "This is a true copy of the original document sighted by me" and include the name and address, contact phone number, profession or occupation of the person who certifies the documentation and date signed.
Once you have chosen your course of study, you will need to apply direct to AC. Applications typically close 3 weeks before semester commences.
All AC application forms are completed online. There are different forms depending on the level of study you are applying for and the location of your course. If you are unsure about which application to complete, our Future Students team can guide you in the right direction.

These courses include the Diploma of Arts and all Bachelor, Graduate Certificate, Graduate Diploma, Masters and Doctoral courses of study.

If you are an Australian high school leaver applying for study at AC, you will be considered on the basis of your academic ATAR/OP or equivalent, together with your Statement of Results sheet. AC is not linked with a Tertiary Admissions Centre and therefore you will need to forward copies of these documents directly to us.

by one of AC’s Application Officers. They will respond to you via email within 2-4
working days, either with a request for more information or a Letter of Offer.
Some courses may require additional entry requirements such as an audition or interview. If required, you will be notified accordingly.
Where necessary, AC verifies the authenticity and Australian equivalence of overseas qualifications through Australian Education International (AEI – NOOSR) within the Department of Education.
