Apply through TISC

If you have completed a course at TAFE or a VET provider you will need to apply through the Tertiary Institutions Services Centre (TISC). Find out how to prepare your TISC application by following the steps below.

Step 1: Login to the TISC website

If you are not registered with TISC, sign up at the TISC registration page.

Step 2: Submit your course preferences as part of your TISC application

Enter your TISC preference codes in order of which course you most want to apply for, followed by your second preference and so on. You can either use the course search on the TISC website or the TISC Guide to get the codes you need.

Step 3: Lodge your application

Follow the instructions, answer the few remaining questions and declare your application. You’ll be asked to declare that all the information you have provided is correct and to pay a fee to submit your TISC application.

Your online TISC application is only activated once payment has been made.


Please ensure that any official documentation you attach to your application follows our scanned documents requirements and guidelines.

What happens next?

Once ATAR results have been released in December, you may wish to revisit your TISC preferences to reflect your ATAR. Then you will need to wait until first round offers are released in January.

If you do receive an offer of admission into a Curtin course in the main round, you can either accept or defer the offer. If you’ve been offered your second to sixth preference you can wait for the second round to see if you get your first preference.
