Get ready to enrol to secure your place!
You can apply for the majority of our courses through TAFE Admissions or via direct application to SM TAFE. If your application is successful you will receive an offer to study with us, then it's time to enrol.
Enrolling is easy! All you have to do is follow the simple steps detailed below to secure your place.
1. Get ready to enrol
Our webform will take about 10 - 15 minutes to complete and will require you to upload the following evidence. If you have applied via TAFE Admissions you will need to have a TAS number to submit this webform; this number can be found on your offer letter.
- Proof of Australian citizenship or permanent residency (such as a green Medicare card, Passport or birth certificate)
- Proof of concession (if you are eligible) - this includes any proof of age ID for persons between 15 - 24 years of age
- Unique Student Identifier (USI) number - find out more

If you have received an offer but would like to change to a different course you can request to change your preferences using our change preferences webform.
Don't want to accept your offer? If you change your mind and don't want to enrol in the course you have received an offer for please let us know, this will mean we are able to offer the place to someone else. Decline your offer using our Decline your offer webform.
