Please note - this registration page is only for candidates wishing to sit STAT overseas. If you wish to sit for STAT in Australia, please contact your local Tertiary Admissions Centre.

ACER uses a secure carrier for its online payment functions to act as its interface with the banking system. Credit card and accompanying personal details are not recorded or stored by ACER but are encrypted at point of capture and transmitted directly to the bank. Thus you can be assured this is a safe payment method.
When your registration is complete, you should receive two emails:
1. Receipt for your payment
2. A confirmation email which is your test Admissions Ticket.
If these are not received within 24 hours of registering, please contact the STAT Office immediately.
What if I don't have a credit card and cannot get access to one?
We strongly suggest that you purchase a single-use card for online transactions from a bank. If that is not possible, you can still apply to sit for STAT, and on the payment page, choose "AUD bank draft/cheque". This will mean that your registration is 'pending' until payment is received.
To send payment:
1. Print out a copy of the Confirmation of Pending Registration email;
2. Purchase a bank draft in AUD$, payable from a bank which has branches in Australia (The bank draft/cheque should be made payable to "ACER - STAT");
3. Take or post a copy of the Pending Registration email and the bank draft to the local test centre at least 3 weeks prior to your test date.
The local test centre will send your payment to ACER and your registration will be confirmed by email to you. If you have not received a 'Confirmation of Registration' email by the time registrations close for your selected test date, please email the STAT office immediately at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you choose to pay by bank draft, then the bank draft must be received at least 3 weeks prior to your nominated test date. For example, if the test date is Monday 25th June, then the bank draft must be received by 5pm on Monday 4th June. There will be no exceptions.
