Completing the final year of high school can be quite daunting and with so many university options to choose from things can become a little confusing. The Southern Cross STAR early offer program is designed to remove some of this pressure so you have time to focus on what really matters – cramming in those extra hours of study to turn good into great.

Why should I participate?
The program allows you access to gain an offer into the university course of your choice, before the UAC and QTAC rounds based on your high school grades and your school principal’s recommendation.

What can I get in to?
Students can apply for 
any undergraduate degree program offered at Southern Cross University.

How does it work?
We have created three levels, providing a framework for you to see what degrees are available to you, based on your grades. These levels are 
STAR PlatinumSTAR Entry and STAR Pathway.

The STAR early offer program is a fast-track offer initiative where Year 12 students can secure a place with Southern Cross University before the tertiary offer rounds.
