How do I enrol?


Current students

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

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.

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

Already enrolled in your courses when class selection has opened?

Go to Step 2 - Select your class times.

Still need to enrol in your courses when Class selection has opened?

View the instructions to enrol in your courses and select your class times in the How to enrol when class selection has opened PDF Guide.

Step 2 - Select your class times 

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

All students (excluding Headstart, Cross institutional and Visiting students)

Once Class selection opens (view Key dates below), select your class times in USC Central by following the instructions in the video below or the Select your class times PDF guide.

Tip: Select your classes as soon as Class selection opens as classes can fill quickly.

Headstart, Cross-institutional and Visiting students

Complete and submit a Class preference form to select your class times.

New students 

Domestic students: Once you have applied and received your offer of a place from USC, follow the steps for Getting Started at USC to respond to your offer, plan your study and enrol in your courses.

International students should view the Getting Started Guide for International students for enrolment steps.

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.
