Planning your enrolment is an important start to your university life. It is an exciting time where you explore your options, plan your courses and get your class timetable organised for your first term of study.
Plan your study
- To help choose your courses, go to your program page and refer to the 'What will I study?' tab. This is where your program structure and program requirements are listed. You must complete the courses and requirements listed in order to successfully complete your degree program.
- Next, find your recommended study sequence to view the recommended order in which you should enrol into your courses. From your program web page, select the 'Plan your study' tab and select your study location and the semester you are starting your studies.
- If you have not received any course credit from previous study, enrol into your courses in the order shown in your recommended study sequence. Remember, 3-4 courses is full-time study, 1-2 courses is part-time. Keep in mind, studying less than four courses per study period will extend the normal duration of your program.
- If you have received course credit from previous studies, refer to the Planning your study page to identify your remaining courses. Use your recommended study sequence to guide the order in which you enrol into your remaining courses.
- View the Academic calendar to check the cut-off dates to add, swap or drop classes for each study period.
- To map out your future enrolment refer to the Planning your study web page. This will enable you to manage your progress throughout your degree to suit your needs.
Credit for prior study
If you have completed previous tertiary study relevant to your program at USC you can apply for credit toward your study. Also, recognition of prior learning (RPL) may be available for knowledge and learning obtained through informal studies or work-related learning. For more information, refer to Credit and recognition of prior learning.
