Each year a limited number of academic scholarships are provided for students commencing full time studies at USC in Year 11. Academic scholarships to attend USC are highly competitive and range in value from 25% to full remission of tuition fees.

These scholarships are awarded entirely on the results of the Scholarship Selection Test (SST) developed by the Australian Council for Education Research (ACER). In 2018, USC will be holding two rounds of scholarship testing.

At University Senior College we are pleased to offer scholarships at Level 3. This level is designed for students in Year 10 in the current academic year (all states).
