A Guide to the CAO Change of Mind Process
If you have already submitted an application form, you can submit a Change of Mind form to the CAO. You can change the level 8 and or level 6/7 courses from your original application, except for restricted application courses/restricted categories of applicant (see page 4 of the CAO handbook).
How do I do it?
Log onto www.cao.ie and complete the process there. There is no charge, you can do it more than once, and the closing date is July 1st at 5:15pm. We recommend that you keep a record of any submissions until you receive confirmation of any changes from the CAO in the post.
What if I don’t want to change my application?
Don’t complete a change of mind form; you don’t need to take any action.
Will I receive confirmation?
Yes – if you do not receive this by the 7th of July, contact the CAO immediately. You will need to provide proof that you submitted a change of mind form.
