Enrol in your courses and classes

Class selection is now open! Don't forget to choose your class times in USC Central – classes are filling quickly. Here's a quick guide on how to enrol and select class times.

Now that you know which courses (subjects) you will study, you need to finalise your enrolment.

Enrolling is a two-step process 

To complete your enrolment:

  • Enrol in your courses (we encourage you to select courses for the full calendar year), then
  • Select your class times for the upcoming study period when class selection opens.

View key enrolment dates in the academic calendar.

Your enrolment is not complete until you’ve selected your class times for your chosen courses.

Step 1: Enrol in your courses (subjects)

When course selection opens for your study period:

  1. Log into USC Central
  2. Select Manage Enrolment
  3. Search for courses by entering the course code (eg BUS101) and study location. Select Search (Note: You may need to choose from the available enrolment terms, eg Semester 1, before you can search for courses)
  4. Select the course
  5. Select the available Course Component (eg Tutorial).
  6. Select the class
  7. Select Add Enrolment
  8. You will see a confirmation that the class has been added.
  9. Select Return to Course Search Page and repeat steps 3-8 to enrol in your other courses.

To view the courses you are enrolled in, select Update Class Times.

Note: If you enrol in a course but don't select a class time or drop it from your enrolment before census date, you'll still incur the fee for the course. You can add courses up until the end of week 2, and remove courses from your enrolment up until census date. View key dates in the academic calendar.

Generate your invoice

Once you have enrolled in your courses you can generate your invoice for the study period. Please note, if your enrolment is for courses in a future year the Tuition Fees will not be shown until the end of January in that year. Your fees will vary according to the courses you enrol in and whether you are a Commonwealth supported student, a Fee-paying student or an international student.

If you have applied and are eligible for HECS-HELP, FEE-HELP and/or SA-HELP your fees will display on your account until after census date, when they will be deferred to your HELP loan. If you have successfully set up your HELP loans, this will be shown on your invoice.

If you are not eligible for HELP assistance, are an international student, or if you choose to pay your fees upfront, you must pay them by the due date on your student invoice. Visit How to pay your fees for instructions and fee payment options.
