Mark your calenders now!

The Leaving Certificate is stressful enough not to mention all the things you have to remember. We've put together a few key dates that you can't forget if you are thinking of using the CAO to choose a college course for September.

This year will see a change in the CAO offer and acceptance schedule with new dates outlined below. 

Round 1 Offers will be issued on Monday, 20th of August at 6 am. The new CAO Offers and Acceptances Schedule for Round 1 has been shortened, with applicants having until 5:15 pm on Friday, 24th of August to accept their offer.

Round 2 Offers will be available online on Wednesday, 29th August at 10 am. The acceptance date for Round 2 Offers is Friday, 31st August at 5:15 pm.

The changes were made in order to allow applicants the opportunity to obtain and accept a Round 2 offer in advance of HEI registration, which will commence in the first week of September for many institutions.
