Student Admissions and Enrolment Policy Statement

ACCM College, through the application of its Student Selection and Admissions Policy, will:

  • Treat all students and prospective students fairly
  • Ensure student admission and selection procedures are based on merit principles and are open, fair and transparent
  • Provide a framework for the selection and admission of students who are capable of success in their chosen field of vocational education studies 
  • Comply with the entrance criteria for government funded programs
  • Comply with limits or caps on enrolments in government funded programs.

Student Admissions Policy Details

  • Right to Refuse Enrolment or Re-enrolment

    Like any service provider, ACCM College is under no legal obligation to enrol anyone (subject only to complying with anti-discrimination laws).

    ACCM College is under no obligation to advise why it decides to refuse enrolments, and as a policy decision will not give reasons.

  • Determining Entry Requirements

    a) Minimum qualification entry pre-requisites will be applied as specified in the relevant national Training Package or specified as part of a government funded course.

    b) In setting other additional entry requirements for courses, the College will identify the minimum skills, knowledge, resources, work environments and work experience necessary for student success in that vocational education program, in each offered delivery pattern. This will include determination of minimum English language, literacy and numeracy skills as specified under the College LLND Policy.

    c) All students applying for entry into the same course/funding combination will be assessed for entry to study through the same published entry requirements and through the same processes.

  • Limitation of Course Places

    a) ACCM College may apply limitations on the number of enrolments approved in any specific course/funding combination. This may be as a way of ensuring that it can maintain staff to student ratios, or for other reasons.

    b) Current Limited Enrolment Courses: Project Management and Human Resource Management course places are currently limited. 

    c) In the event that an ACCM College course has a limited number of allowed students, students will be admitted on a "first in" selection model subject to minimum entry requirements.

    This model provides a fair playing field for those who may have encountered past social or educational disadvantage as they are not required to compete against those who have had greater advantage.

    d) "First in" will be measured by date and time of successful completion of all administrative items and the Initial Skills Assessment.

    e) Students not successful in selection due to maximum course numbers being exceeded will be advised by email within 5 working days.

  • NSW Smart and Skilled Entitlement Program Cap Management - Cessation of Enrolments

    NSW Smart and Skilled programs apply a "cap" of allowed financial commitment for student enrolments. To manage this cap ACCM College may stop new enrolments in courses from time to time.

    Students will have access to be placed on a wait list for if/when cap funds become available.

    If funds become available the waitlisted people will be advised and allowed to apply to enrol as a priority. Their enrolment will be processed on the standard first in process.


  • ACT Skilled Capital Limited Places - Application Process

    ACT Skilled Capital have limited places in each qualification.

    They require students to apply to enrol with us and provide their USI before we can apply for a place on their behalf.

    Places are not guaranteed.

    Currently ACT is not offering funding for Course's ACCM Supports under Skilled Capital or Job Trainer (current as of 1 March 2023) 

  • Specific Course LLND Requirements

    a) The individual course page on this website will display the specific LLND (and other) entry requirements for each specific course.  


  • Alternative LLND Assessment Methods
