UWA First in Family Program

Our First in Family program is designed to support students in achieving their goals to attend university.

If you have received an ATAR of 70-79.95 and will be the first in your family to attend university, you may still be eligible for a place at UWA. You’ll then be able to join our community and study one of our four undergraduate degrees.


You are eligible if:

  • neither of your parents/guardians have completed a university-level degree (siblings currently studying or planning to study at university do not make you ineligible)
  • you scored an ATAR of 70–79.95
  • you satisfy the University’s English language requirements
  • you selected UWA as your first preference in TISCor have applied direct to UWA for an Early Offer
  • you have not been offered a place at UWA (Broadway or other pathway)

How to apply

Early Offer

If you’ve applied or are thinking applying for an Early Offer through UWA, contact our admissions team to let them know you are the First in Family – they’ll assess your eligibility with your application.


If applying through TISC current WACE school leavers can indicate their eligibility through the Tertiary Institutions Service Centre

Note: Your TISC advice letter will not show your automatic adjustment; however, rest assured our Admissions team will be aware of your status and you will be made an offer if you retain UWA as your first preference.

Interstate school leavers can email admissions for information.
