CQUniversity Regional Adjustment Factors Scheme

CQUniversity wants applicants from our regional and rural communities to have the same university study options as those residing in metropolitan areas. We recognise that applicants from regional Australia may not always have the same opportunities as applicants from capital cities. Therefore, all eligible applicants applying through Tertiary Admissions Centres (QTAC, UAC and VTAC) from non-metropolitan areas with a preference to CQUniversity will receive an automatic adjustment equivalent to one OP position or two ATAR positions or two selection rank improvements.


This scheme is open to those persons who currently reside outside of an Australian city.


Regional Adjustment Factors are awarded automatically if you reside or attend a school in a region classified as 'inner regional', 'outer regional', 'Remote' or 'Very Remote' under the Australian Standard Geographical Remoteness Classification (ASGC) when they apply for a degree program at CQUniversity.

Note: There is no application. If you attend an Engage Education School in Queensland, you have automatically received the extra Regional Adjustment Factors Point.
