From Friday 23 November 2012 at Timetable Information 2013
Check the schedule for enrolment and class registration start dates. You can:
- Enrol in topics any time from the start date for topic enrolment, then register in classes when they open; or
- Enrol in topics and register in classes when class registrations open (this option takes longer).
- First you must plan your study for 2013. Make sure that you check your course rule for topic changes. Look for any course information/advice sessions provided for your course. Contact your course coordinator if you are unsure about your choice of topics.
- Pay any outstanding debts to the University or you will not be able to enrol.
- Changing courses? If you are transferring to a new course or your course has changed as a result of a course restructure, and you are a Commonwealth supported student, you must complete new Commonwealth Assistance Form (CAF), in addition, if you wish to defer your student services and amenities fees, you will need to also submit an SA-HELP form via the Student Information System. Approval is normally immediate.
- Update all your personal details using ‘My Details’ on the Student Information System. Check that your address, phone, emergency contact, citizenship & residency, cultural, disability and parent/guardian education details are correct.
- Connect to the Student Information System using the link within FLO.
- Select ‘My Enrolment’. You will need to read and consent to the declaration before proceeding.
- Your study plan may look different for 2013. For many students all topics will be selected from the Option/Elective section.
- To select topics use the plus or minus icons to view option and elective topic groups. Click on 'Choose' to search for a topic in these groups. Use the 'More details' link to find specific information on the topic, group or course. An 'Unavailable' link will give you the reason why the topic, group or course is unavailable for enrolment. Use the search window at the top of the study plan grid to change the study period and location to display specific topic availabilities, or leave the search window blank to show all options.
- To enrol in topics, tick the appropriate 'Enrol?' checkbox to select one or more topics for enrolment. Remove the tick if you decide it is not the topic you want. Once you have completed your selection, click on 'I want to...Enrol in the selected topics'. Confirm that the topics on your Potential Enrolment list are correct. Click on 'I want to...Confirm Enrolment' if you are happy with the selected topics, or use the 'I want to...Go Back/Change' to change your topic selection.
- Check your enrolment using ‘View My Current Enrolment’ to ensure that you have enrolled successfully. Obtain a Confirmation of Enrolment, if required.
You can register in all classes for 2013 including Semester 2 classes. Check the Enrolment information page to:
- Search the timetable for details of your topics.
- Check the activities (eg lecture, tutorial, practical) and the times when these activities are offered.
- Plan a draft timetable. Choose a time for each activity in each topic.
- Find timetable planners.
- Connect to the Student Information System via FLO.
- Select the ‘My Timetable’ tab. All available classes will be displayed on the timetable grid.
- Some classes may already appear on your timetable. If there was only one available class, automatic registration occurred when you enrolled. In this case you will see a half-full or full hourglass next to the relevant topic.
- To use the timetable grid, click on the orange help icon to expand details of how to register for classes. You can register in classes for all study periods, or for one study period at a time (this is preferable). Use the search criteria to select the study period. Resize the timetable grid by clicking and dragging the column borders or using the black triangle icon at the bottom of the grid. Click the Legend icon on the top left side of the timetable for more information on the symbols on the grid.
- To register for classes, select the classes you require by ticking the checkbox in the coloured class time on the grid, and click 'Save'. Change your class registration by clicking on the 'Change' icon alongside the topic details at any time up until the last day to add or withdraw from topics.
- Some topics may not have timetabled classes in which case the comment alongside the half-full or empty hourglass will state that a number of classes are not available. The hourglass may not appear full if there is an optional activity in which you have chosen not to register.
- Check and print your timetable. Click on the 'Print' icon just above the grid to obtain a print-friendly copy of your timetable. You can select a 'Week Starting' period and view/print the timetable for just one week. Resize your timetable grid in the Print screen, prior to printing, by following the instructions above.
You can waitlist for classes when no places remain in a class. Waitlisted classes show in grey on your timetable grid. Your hourglass will not be full because you are not yet registered in a class. Waitlisting does NOT mean you are guaranteed a place in a class. Choose another class that fits in with your timetable, even if it is not your preferred time.
Waitlisting will close on Friday 22 February 2013 for Semester 1 topics and Friday 19 July 2013 for Semester 2 topics. Students will not be able to waitlist for classes after these dates. Anyone remaining on a waitlist will be removed and will need to choose an alternative time. Ensure you have registered in all Semester 1 classes before teaching starts in the week commencing Monday 4 March 2013 and Monday 29 July 2013 for Semester 2 classes.
Classes normally start in the week commencing:
- Monday 4 March 2013 for Semester 1 topics;
- Monday 29 July 2013 for Semester 2 topics; or
- Non-Semester topics have different start and census dates. Check your timetable for details.
The last date to enrol in topics or change class registration is:
- Friday 15 March 2013 for Semester 1 topics;
- Friday 9 August 2013 for Semester 2 topics; or
- the last day of teaching or the census date, whichever date is earlier, for non-semester topics.
The last date to pay fees is:
- Sunday 10 March 2013 for Semester 1 topics;
- Saturday 10 August 2013 for Semester 2 topics; or
- specified dates for non-semester topics. Check your Fee Account for details.
The census date is the last date to withdraw from topics without incurring student contribution amounts, tuition fees or student services and amenities fees, this is:
- Sunday 31 March 2013 for Semester 1 topics;
- Saturday 31 August 2013 for Semester 2 topics; or
- specified dates for non-semester topics. Check your Confirmation of Enrolment or the timetable for details.
Census dates for all topics are published on the timetable or at the Census dates page.
Other critical enrolment dates can be found on the Academic year dates page.
You can enrol in additional topics, withdraw from topics, or change classes at any time until the last date to add or withdraw topics. See Important dates you need to know
Enrolment may be accepted after the last date to add topics, but prior to the census date, only if special approval is obtained. See more information via the Ask Trim website.
If you wish to withdraw from a topic, you must do this before the census date to avoid incurring student contribution amounts, tuition fees and student services and amenities fees. If you withdraw from a topic after the census date you will incur student contribution amounts, tuition fees and student services and amenities fees. Note: unregistering from a class does not withdraw you from a topic.
The University must comply with Australian government legislation in regard to census dates for topics and cannot make special provisions for students who have failed to enrol or withdraw on time.
I don't meet the prerequisite for a topic I want to enrol in because I'm waiting for a result, can I enrol?
You will be able to enrol if you are currently enrolled in the prerequisite topic.
If you are sitting a supplementary exam, or are still awaiting results, it is recommended that you enrol and register in classes as if you have passed the requirements of that topic.
However, if you subsequently fail the prerequisite topic, you need to amend your enrolment or obtain approval for a prerequisite waiver to avoid cancellation.
Check your enrolment
Check your enrolment carefully after adding or withdrawing from topics to ensure that you are enrolled in the correct topics, for the right semester and in the right locations, and under the right courses (if undertaking a combined degrees program). Select ‘View my Current Enrolment’ on the Student Information System menu to confirm your enrolment.
Update your student card
New stickers will be available during Orientation Week and week 1 from the Enrolment Services tent on the Plaza.
Maintain a full-time enrolment (where required)
To be enrolled full-time you need to study 36 units in a year, normally split evenly over each semester. In some circumstances students may enrol in more than 36 units - this is called an overload. Special approval is required for any overload more than 22.5 units per semester. You will be required to pay any fees and charges associated with the additional enrolment. You can request overload approval via the Frequently Asked Questions webpage .
Students receiving Youth Allowance and Austudy from Centrelink must be enrolled in at least 13.5 units per semester.
International students in Australia on a student visa must normally complete their degree within the approved visa period, usually 18 units per semester. Your course coordinator can assist you to plan your studies to meet these requirements. See Student visa holder responsibilities . Information can be found on the Enrolment information page or find more answers via the Ask Trim website.
Check and pay your fees
Your fee account is only available online. An invoice or fee account will not be mailed to you. View fee details in the Student Information System using the ‘My Finances>View Financial Transactions’ menu. Choose the ‘View My Fee Account’ link on the page to see all fees, due dates and discounts where applicable. Make sure you pay your fees by the due date.
If you change courses, topics, or enrol in topics over the recommended full-time enrolment, your outstanding fee amounts may change. You can print your fee account at any time to view outstanding fee amounts.
It is your responsibility to check how much you owe and pay your fees by the due date.
Keep your contact details up-to-date
Keep your personal details up-to-date at all times, in particular your address, telephone numbers and emergency contacts.
Read your University email regularly
