How do I enrol?


Course enrolments for 2017 are now open.

Enrol in your courses by Sunday 30 October so you get first selection of class times in January.

Enrolling for 2017

Enrolling is a 2 step process.

Step 1 - Enrol in your courses

You can enrol in courses for the full year (Study periods 1 and 2). This gives you the opportunity to plan your study well in advance.

If you enrol in your courses on time you have the advantage of selecting your class times earlier than those who don't (Step 2). View Key dates below.

View the instructions to complete Step 1 in the video below or the Enrol in your courses PDF guide.

Step 2 - Select your class times

Check the Academic calendar for the timetable release date for each study period. Once the timetable has been released in January 2017 you can use the Timetable Planner to plan your class times.

You will be notified when class selection opens for the relevant study period and provided with instructions on how to complete Step 2. See Key dates below.

Enrolling for Session 7, 8 (Summer) and Trimester 3, 2016

Use the Timetable Planner to plan your class times.

Then, enrol in your courses and select your class times in USC Central by following the instructions in the video below or the How to enrol when class selection has opened PDF guide (565KB).

To enrol in courses in 2017 (Study periods 1 and 2) follow the Enrolling for 2017 instructions below.

Refer to the Academic Calendar for key session/trimester dates.

Plan your study

Before you re-enrol it's important to plan your study to make sure you study the right courses at the right time so you can finish your degree when you plan to.

Follow the Planning your study instructions to plan your courses for the upcoming semesters/trimesters/sessions. You can vary your study load between full-time (3-4 courses) or part-time (1-2 courses) in each study period. If you need some assistance, contact Student Central.
