Notice to Schools 122/2021 – 10 September 2021
2021 Validation of student postal addresses
Principals/directors, VASS administrators and VCE, VCAL and VET coordinators
In October, the VCAA will undertake validation of student addresses for all students enrolled in one or more VCE or scored VCE VET Unit 3–4 sequences in 2021. The purpose of this process is to maximise the successful delivery of the hard copy results to students' postal addresses.
If student addresses do not conform to Australia Post standards, the VCAA will email schools and provide the reason why the address has not been validated. Schools are required to review incorrect addresses and amend in VASS. If all addresses are correct, schools will not receive a notification and no action is required.
It is important that correct student address details are entered in full, including the apartment, flat, unit, house and property number where relevant.
When entering student addresses that are longer than the available character length, abbreviate the address in the most meaningful way possible.
Before the validation process starts, Principals should make sure that student addresses are current and correct for all students enrolled in one or more VCE or scored VCE VET Unit 3–4 sequences in 2021 by the start of Term 4.
Principals/directors, please make sure that student addresses are confirmed and updated in VASS by the start of Term 4.
Monday 4 October – validation process starts
