Here are all the dates you need for VTAC applications, so get your phone/ calendar/ notebook/ whatever you use to mark important days out and add these in.

More often than not missing these dates is both annoying and expensive, and in some cases the consequences are irreversible.

Not to instil terror in you all, but VTAC applications are coming (dun-dun-dun!) and you do not want to miss anything.

Course applications:

Course applications will most likely be done at school, but make sure to keep on top of this in your own time so you have plenty of time to change or add anything!

Timely application fee: $35 for current Year 12 students; $53 for all other applicants
