Central Application Clearing House (CACH) Services

The Central Application Clearing House (CACH) has provided matriculants with a second chance to gain entrance into Post School Institutions, e.g. Universities, TVET Colleges. This invaluable service assists students whose original application may have been unsuccessful but has subsequently improved with their final Grade 12 results.

The CACH service collects information of learners with grade 12 results who are seeking placement at a University, University of Technology, or Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) college at the beginning of the year. The CACH sign-up service allows candidates to “sign-up” for consideration by any institution that have indicated their intention to participate in CACH.


Institutions and the sector education and training authorities (SETAs) use the CACH database for placement. Where places exist and prospective students meet the requirements, institutions will contact them directly once they have accepted the offer on the CACH system.

The CACH service is provided by the Department of Higher Education and Training as a free service to both applicants and institutions. Since 2013 it has helped thousands of aspirant students find places at institutions of higher learning.

Public universities, TVET colleges, SETA’s and private colleges will access the CACH database via the website (self-service portal) to search for individuals that meet the criteria of the spaces still available.

The system will send SMS or e-mails to those that are made an offer for them to accept or reject the offer. Once the offer has been accepted, Institutions will directly contact those who accepted the offer.

The information drawn from the CACH will be treated with the same level of confidentiality as that of direct applicants by institutions and there will be compliance with the protection of the personal information act of 2013.
