English as an Additional Language (EAL) Application
Eligibility to enrol in English as an Additional Language (EAL) is determined by schools. The application does not need to be forwarded to the VCAA for assessment if eligibility requirements are met.
If schools are unable to make a decision on eligibility or if the application is for a student whose country of origin is Singapore or India, then the application must be forwarded with the required supporting documentation to the VCAA for assessment. These applications must be submitted by Friday 29 October 2021.
VCE Second Language Applications
A student’s eligibility status will appear on the VASS (set year to 2022) from October 2021. Under the menu, see:
Student Program > VCE Reports > Second Language Applications.
Select ‘Run Second Language Application Report’. If the application has not been approved, an ‘N’ will appear under the ‘Eligible’ column.
We will notify VCE coordinators and/or VASS administrators via email of the outcome. It is important to advise students of the outcome immediately, so they are aware of their eligibility status to enrol in the requested study in 2022.
