USYD Admissions Updats



Acceptance reminder for the Master of Commerce and Master of Commerce (Extension) programs


Students with an unconditional offer know that an unconditional offer does not guarantee a place in the current intake and that students need to accept their offers and pay the tuition fee as soon as possible to ensure they have a place in the program.


For the Master of Commerce and Master of Commerce (Extension) programs, USYD will set a 21-day acceptance deadline on unconditional offers and will be contacting offer holders to communicate this deadline. If acceptance is not finalised by this deadline then the unconditional offer will be withdrawn.


Please note that for unconditional offer holders with an active credit application, USYD will ensure the credit assessment will be completed before the acceptance deadline giving the student enough time to accept the offer. Please ensure that your students provide all the required documentation for their credit assessment by Friday 9 April. If any outstanding documents are not provided by 9 April, the credit application will be withdrawn however the offer will still be valid until the 21-day deadline has passed.


In the meantime, USYD will be holding off issuing any further S2, 2021 unconditional offers for the Master of Commerce and Master of Commerce (Extension) until the 21-day deadline has passed.
