Adult Status for SACE

An adult student is a person who is at least 18 years old on 1 January in the year he or she completes the SACE, and who has left school for at least one continuous year.

On re-entry, you are awarded a maximum of 110 credits at Stage 1.

To complete the SACE, you will have to satisfactorily complete:

  • Stage 2 SACE Board-accredited subjects or VET courses worth 60 credits
  • the Research Project (10 credits)
  • other Stage 1 or Stage 2 Board-accredited subjects or VET courses worth 20 credits
  • meet minimum literacy and numeracy requirements.
Adult students do not have to do the Personal Learning Plan.

Adult Education Policy
Students who are aged 21 years or over sign a SACE Pathways Plan. This plan, developed in partnership with the student and the College, outlines the agreed learning pathway that the student intends to undertake to complete their SACE.
