Select your class times

  1. Plan your classes 

    Once the class timetable for your semester of study is available* you can start planning your class times by using the online Timetable Planner.

    Select and make note of up to 3 preferred class times for each component of the course you are enrolled in (ie. tutorial, lecture, workshop or lab).

  2. Submit your Class preference form 

    Complete and submit your Class preference form before class selection opens* so you can be enrolled as classes will fill quickly after this time.

    Add your chosen classes from the Timetable Planner, listing up to 3 preferred class times for each class. While every effort will be made to enrol you in your most preferred classes, it's good to have back-up options in case your most preferred class times are not available.

  3. View your class timetable 

    Once you have been enrolled in your classes, you can view your class timetable in USC Central.

* Check key dates on the Academic calendar.
